"Dirty Women" as written by and John Osbourne Frank Iommi....
The neon lights are shining on me again
I walk the lonely streets in search of a friend
I need a lady to help me to get through the night
If I could find one then everything would be alright

The sleepy city is dreaming the nigh time away
Out on the street I watch tomorrow becoming today
I see a man,he's got take away women for sale
Yes for sale
Guess that's the answer
'cause take away women don't fail

Oh dirty women,they don't mess around
Oh dirty women,they don't mess around
You've got me coming
You've got me going around
Oh dirty women,
They don't mess around

Walking the streets I wonder will it ever happen
Gotta be good then everything will be o.k.
if I could score tonight then I will end up happy
A woman for sale is gonna help me save my day

    General CommentYeah, obviously. But are they condemning it or condoning it?

    General CommentNiether. They don't like this song at all. It's a cover that either their manager or the record company felt would liven up one of their albums. I believe it was the first one.

    General CommentKillspy, I think you're gettingmixed up with 'Evil Woman'. Dirty Women is from their 7th album.

    General CommentI particularly like the riff that comes up at around 3:15 - it has the same DDCD chord progression at the beginning, but as soon as it gets into the FGF etc part it just sounds so brutal and evil. Excellent song.

    General CommentIs it just me, or at about 2:54 do I hear the 'Breaking the Law' riff almost?

    General CommentThis song is probably about prostitution and someone who is lonely during the nite time.
