  • Lyrics
  • Giving a swish with your ass in the air, don't you know what they're saying?
    Charlotte you're so refined when you take all the love that they're giving.
    Sticking with every man that you find, don't you know what they're after?
    Charlotte you've got your legs in the air, don't you hear all the laughter?

    [Chorus]
    Charlotte the Harlot show me your legs,
    Charlotte the Harlot take me to bed.
    Charlotte the Harlot let me see blood,
    Charlotte the Harlot let me see love.

    Taking so many men to your room, don't you feel no remorse?
    You charge them a "fiver", It's only for starters.
    And ten for the main course.
    And you've got no feelings, they died long ago.
    Don't you care who you let in?
    And don't you know you're breaking the law with the service you're giving.

    [Chorus]

    There was a time when you left me standing there,
    Picking up pieces of love off the floor.
    Well Charlotte you left me alone in there,
    To make your ends as a bloody whore.
    Well Charlotte you told me you love me true,
    Picking up pieces of love yesterday.
    Well Charlotte you're draws are off color too
    'Cause you're making love all day.

    Giving a swish with your ass in the air, don't you know what they're saying?
    Charlotte you're so refined when you take all the love that they're giving.
    Sticking with every man that you find, don't you know what they're after?
    Charlotte you've got your legs in the air, don't you hear all the laughter?

    [Chorus]Writer/s: DAVID MICHAEL MURRAY

  • Karl from UkOh yes, and being a pimp is illegal. That's called living off immoral earnings.
  • Karl from UkActually prostitution isn't illegal in England. Soliciting is, so is running a brothel. But prostitution, no.
  • Luke from Manchester, UkI stand corrected.
  • Emarkm from Cheshire, United KingdomI always think it's sad that, when asked, Dave can't actually remember writing the song - too many years, too many tours and maybe a couple of beers got in the way!
  • Ryan from Bethany, OkThere are 4 songs in the Charlotte Saga: Charlotte the Harlot, 22 Acacia Avenue, Hooks In You, and From Here To Eternity.

  • Leah from Brooklyn, NyThere is a famous historical folksong by this name that was popular among the Cowpokes, back in the late 1800's. The chorus went "Charlotte the Harlot, the gal we adore, the Pride of the Prairie, the Cowpuncher's Whore."
  • Luke from Manchester, EnglandThere are only 3 songs in the Charlotte Saga: Charlotte The Harlotte, 22 Accacia Avenue and From Here To Eternity
  • Heather from Holbrook, NyIron Maiden used to play small clubs during their tours as "Charlotte and the Harlots."
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScNice little rhyming scheme there in the title. Isn't is?
