I caught the point. I know you were making a joke.
I know the song you are talking about. I had it on a single record when I was a child (in the 70s). It predates the police song.
I have also been looking for this song and cannot find any details.
I am not sure who the artist was. My mother thinks it was in the charts in Australia in the 1970s and she bought the single.
A few lyrics I recall are Roxanne i’m Your man.
It also has lyrics about when she gets down she goes like a Hurricane.
Golden Earring had a song called Roxanne, released 1978
The song you are looking for is called Roxanne from 1975. The artist is Peter Foldy and he had another rather big hit called Bondi Junction. These are on YOUTUBE! I created an account on here just now because I hope you see this post and play the tune for your mother! All the best...
The song I was referring to
is called Roxanne. My mum found the record. It was sung by Rockwell T James- recorded on Infinity at EMI studios Sydney on 33 - and released in 1976 by Sherbet Record Productions – it is an Australian recording produced by Garth Porter & Richard Lush.
It is on YouTube under
Rockwell T. James - "Roxanne".
Does a song title count? Golden Earrings Roxanne, off the stupendously rocking Grab It For A Second album.
I have a Rock band, I could write a song (ballad or whatever genre you want) specifically about your situation, if you are interested.
I remember this song from 1976. There was a girl named in my class called Roxanne, and I had a bit of a crush on her. I absolutely loved this song!
Sometimes it's magic, sometimes it's tragic
Roxanne, one day you're up, one day you're down
You're like a see-saw that's always in motion; how can one girl cause such a commotion?
SanFranFan has it right - Peter Foldy was the artist. But according to Wikipedia 1976 was the release date (close enough). Is your mother Canadian? It was big here in Canada.
This is late but as we were talking about Suzzane, there's a Journey song Suzzane which is phenomenal.
