Commissioned for a 21st birthday!!
Authors' Note: Commissioned by family for a 21st birthday party of a cousin - to the tune of John Farnham's "Sadie the Cleaning Lady"   Click the link for a live performance from John about twenty (20) years after the one below *Smile*

**Edited to add video links after a reviewer said they had never heard the song before. I guess it's an Aussie thing; and yes, it is a VERY old song *Wink*




Rossy, the Cleaning Laddie

Rossy, the cleaning laddie
With painted nails and bleach blonde hair
Working the rounds at the local mall
Will he take to this rhyme with gall,
Or take it in his stride with flare.

Rossy, the cleaning laddie
Getting makeup tips from Marilyn Manson
Keeps dressin' up like a Frankenstein
Whenever he's listenin' to Rammstein
We won't find him boppin' to Hanson.

So raise your glasses to dear old Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie
Good luck to all your dreams dear Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie

Ah, Rossy, the cleaning laddie
In sumer, spring, winter or fall
We don't wanna find him without a job
So make a mess, and be a slob
Whenever you're found at the mall.

Rossy, the cleaning laddie
Getting makeup tips from Marilyn Manson
Keeps dressin' up like a Frankenstein
Whenever he's listenin' to Rammstein
We won't find him boppin' to Hanson.

So raise your glasses to dear old Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie
Good luck to all your dreams dear old Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie

Ah, Rossy, the cleaning laddie
It seems now we're running outta time
Go hang up that mop and forgive you we may
'Cause after all it's your birthday today
So comes the end of this silly little rhyme.

So raise your glasses to dear old Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie
Good luck to all your architectural dreams dear old Rossy
Let us hope you won't always be a cleaning laddie.
