Roxanne Lyrics

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to
the night
Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress
tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if
it's right

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light

Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light

I loved you since I knew you
I wouldn't talk down to you
I have to tell you just how I feel
I won't share you with another boy
I know my mind is made up
So put away your makeup
Told you once I won't tell you again
It's a bad way

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light

You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light
Roxanne put on the red light

Sting, I have loved this song since you first wrote & sang it. Many times, with my name being Roxanne, people begin singing this song upon introduction to me. It has truly been a huge part of my life.

There is a good drinking game that goes with this song. Everytime you hear Roxanne, take a drink. Everytime you hear 'put on the red light' stand up turn around and sit back down. Great near the end of the song.

Roxanne is one of the simplest yet funnest songs to play on drums...so easy to get into. love the Police; Copeland's a top influence!

Nina is an idiot. This song is amazing in so many ways. And why would someone look up lyrics just to hate on a song? I mean honestly. Get a life.

If I had a dollar for every time i heard this song...I wouldn't have to worry about student loans anymore. I hate this song! Maybe if it wasn't sung every time I walked in a room I'd have enjoyed it.

nina, it is a beautiful song, about a man opening his heart to a woman who has sinned, trying to help her realize she should not be a prostitue

it does not have to be degrading or explointing, of course most of the time it can be but is not alway the case , why demonaizing prostitution,? society should protect them , beutiful song

@Shane, I have heard of a similar take on the song, but every time you hear "Roxanne," we all do a burpee. (jumping jacks while waiting). Tons of fun, the loser has to do extra burpees. (Losing constituting of the people who didn't get in a burpee right when he said it. Agreed, it gets interesting toward the end.)
