Lyrics:
[spoken] Is she really going out with him?

Hey!

I got a feeling inside of me,
It's kinda strange, like a stormy sea
I don't know why, I don't know why
I guess these things've gotta be

Chorus:
I got a new rose, I got it good
Yes, I knew that I always would
I can't stop to mess around
I got a brand new rose in town

See the sun, see the sunny skies
Don't get too close, it'll burn your eyes
Don't you run away that way
Come back another day

[Chorus]

I never thought this could happen to me
I'm a strange washing machine
I never served somebody this sane
I'll never, never, never be too late

Hey!

[Repeat first verse]

[Chorus]


Quotes:
"New Rose" by the Damned was definitely Duff's choice.[Guitar Player, January 1994]

After we did [The Spaghetti Incident?] I was playing a gig in ‘94 with Steve Jones, we were playing the Viper Room every Monday night as the Neurotic Outsiders and Rat Scabies [from The damned] came to one of the gigs. Steve introduced us and Rat said, "thanks for covering that song, I got the biggest publishing cheque I ever got". But I didn’t know what to say, I was terrified of The Damned man, these are my heroes. I mean it was Rat Scabies, what the hell do you say to Rat Scabies?

Nice quote. What do I say to Rat Scabies? "Hi Ratty" mostly, as I met him quite a few times. He's a great drummer and I got on well with him. Cool

On a side note, Duff guested at a few Brian James gigs (he wrote the song "New Rose") and performed the song with him. (Duff also played bass on the "Mad for the racket" album, a project by Brian James & Wayne Kramer.)

That's cool! Where did you meet Rat Scabies, at concerts?

Yes, at first at a concert, later I went on a "guided tour" (w/ him as one of the "guides") in South France. That's how I met his mate from the US, who back then was drum tech for Josh (and that's how I met Josh when they toured Germany a bit later)...

Also at a concert, 20 years ago, I met Brian James, asked him for an autograph, he was surprised to see that I own the Mad for the racket cd! Cool

Yeah, I dread to think what I wouldn't have experienced if I hadn't gotten into the Damned back in the 1980s!

In case anyone wants to know more about the original song, here is a new in-depth analysis:

I think that this "I-got-the-biggest-publishing-cheque-I-ever-got" story happened to pretty much all the "obscure" bands that GN'R covered in Spaghetti

Even Bob Dylan said something similar about Knockin' on Heaven's Door if I am not mistaken
