The Lyrics

The Rose Tattoo LP "Southern Stars" was IMHO one of the finest rock albums of the 80s, they had a breadth that few heavy bands could match, could even do (like here) reggae - if only they had a better manager! ;-)

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
She's bound to be a Karen
Everyone can see
When she turns up, we're standing clear
As clerks get the second degree

A ferret type and scolder
A pain in neck on two feet
Verbal oozing on anything
From sideline she's quite a treat

She's like a spooooiled little brat
As she wants the manager, stat

Wailing, with loud complaints
Laying, it out inane
Airing, her lofty brain
Maybe, she's just insane

She's bound to go full Karen
In tops another week
When she devolves, get out of there
Nobody hold back, just flee

She'll be a bawling badger
That never dropped a pair
Gonna have a hairdoo in vogue
But old fashioned underwear

She wants to see the manager
And she'll add a stale ethnic slur

Wailing, with loud disdain
Pointing, with throbbing veins
Airing, absonant claims
No way, that this is feigned

She knows to shoooow that she's displeased
Just her one and sole expertise

Louder, and more profane
Yeeting, it out unreined
Screaming, what's on her brain
Where is, her ball and chain?

Repeat complaint/chorus ad nauseam
