Teenage Prostitute

by

Frank Zappa



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Zappa biographer Barry Miles says "Teenage Prostitute" gave critics cause for concern being a song about a 17 year old runaway whose pimp shoots her full of smack: "Zappa appears not to feel any compassion for her. The fact that her pimp would beat her up if she tried to get away is treated as a joke."
Certainly Zappa was not a "people person", although he appears to have enjoyed performing and usually developed a rapport with his audience; it remains to be seen though if this song is pure misogyny, cruelty, indifference to suffering, social commentary, satire or bizarre humour.

Gramm co-wrote this gorgeous ballad and delivered an inspired vocal, but the song was the beginning of the end of his time with Foreigner.
