IRON MAIDEN - Charlotte the harlot

Charlotte the Harlot is one of the only songs written entirely by Dave Murray. It's the second to last song on Iron Maiden. It has four different movements; the intoduction, the miniature ballad in the the middle, the solos, and the end (which is a reprise of the introduction). The song is 4:12 long.

Charlotte the Harlot is the first song in a series of three (some fans argue four) songs about the fictional character Charlotte, who is an English prostitute.


Lyrics:


Giving a swish with your arse in the air, don't you hear what they're saying?

Charlotte your 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?


Charlot the Harlot show me your legs,

Charlot the Harlot take me to bed,

Charlot the Harlot let me see blood,

Charlot 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?


Charlot the Harlot show me your legs,

Charlot the Harlot take me to bed,

Charlot the Harlot let me see blood,

Charlot the Harlot let me see love.


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 loved me too,

Picking up pieces of love yesterday.

Well Charlotte your draws are off-colour too,

Cause you're making love all day.


Giving a swish with your arse in the air, don't you hear what they're saying?

Charlotte your 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?


Charlot the Harlot show me your legs,

Charlot the Harlot take me to bed,

Charlot the Harlot let me see blood,

Charlot the Harlot let me see love.
