Slappin' leather was devised 
During a wild streak in her life 
She had a cheap apartment up on Royal Street  she brought home 
Just enough to keep her on her feet 

She don't believe in anything 
But if you ask her  she'll say there's a plenty of things to believe in 
Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 

Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 
Sometimes you gotta be loved 

She got a number off the bathroom wall 
She was looking for a good time so she made the call 
Got a strangly calm voice on the other line 
Sneaky little priest tryin' to reach out to the swine 

He said, "Hello my name is Father Tim 
Seems to me your zeal for this life has been wearing a little thin" 

Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 
Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 
Sometimes you gotta be loved 

Maybe we all could use a little grace 
To know when to run or when to stay in one place 

Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 
Sweet Rosalyn 
Sometimes you gotta give in 
Sometimes you gotta be loved
