22 Acacia Avenue

Album: The Number of the Beast (1982)
  • This is the second song in the Charlotte the Harlot saga - the first is "Charlotte the Harlot," the third is "Hooks In You" and the fourth is "From Here To Eternity." Charlotte is a hooker you can meet on 22 Acacia Avenue, and this song describes her life on the job. >>
