  • Lyrics
  • A flower lady's daughter
    As sweet as holy water
    Said, "I'm the school reporter
    Please teach me", well I taught her.

    Two fingered levi'd sister
    Said, "Peace", I stopped I kissed her.
    Said, "I'm a male resister",
    I smiled and just unzipped her.

    High diving Chinese trender
    Black hair and black suspender
    Said, "Please me no surrender
    Just love to feel your Fender".

    All of you know that the girls of the road
    Are like apples you stole in your youth.
    All of you know that the girls of the road
    Been around but are versed in the truth.

    Stone-headed Frisco spacer
    Ate all the meat I gave her
    Said would I like to taste hers
    And even craved the flavor

    "Like marron-glaced fish bones
    Oh lady hit the road!"

    All of you know that the girls of the road
    Are like apples you stole in your youth.
    All of you know that the girls of the road
    Been around but are versed in the truth.Writer/s: PETER JOHN SINFIELD, ROBERT FRIPP

  • Razor from London, EnglandRobert Fripp once apologised to his mother ONSTAGE for the lyrics in the song! However, it was rarely, if ever, performed live.
