At the rose candy coast each and every one talked about Rosa Rosalia
who had a wee bit of strawberry cream on both cheeks
and walked her pink piglet as the rosy sun rose up.
"Rosa Rosalia or the colour pink" is an iconic song from the children's radio show "Lilliput". The idea of "Lilliput" was implemented in the Hellenic Radio by Manos Hatzidakis, the famous Greek composer. The show was aired from 1976 to 1980. The young, talented composers and singers who participated in the show, later became part of the Greek musical elite. The show became popular and its songs are still sung today. Lena Platonos composed the music and Marianina Kriezi wrote the lyrics. Maria Charalampous illustrated the sweet sweet and dreamy song!
