"Soon After Midnight" as written by and Bob Dylan....
I'm searching for phrases
To sing your praises
I need to tell someone
It's soon after midnight
And my day has just begun

A girl named Honey
Took my money
She was passing by
It's soon after midnight
And the moon is in my eye

My heart is cheerful
It's never fearful
I've been down on the killing floors
I'm in no great hurry
I'm not afraid of your fury
I've faced stronger walls than yours

Charlotte's a harlot
Dresses in scarlet
Mary dresses in green
It's soon after midnight
And I've got a date with the fairy queen

They chirp and they chatter
What does it matter?
They lie and dine in their blood
Two timing Slim
Who's every heard of him?
I'll drag his corpse through the mud

It's now or never
More than ever
When I met you I didn't think you do
Its soon after midnight
And I don't want nobody but you

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites from Dyman.
    But, being a non-native English speaker, the text is not really clear to me.

    Who helps me out with the meaning of this song and with e.g the meaning of the following text::

    Charlotte the Harlot,
    Dresses in scarlet,
    Mary dresses in green
    It's soon after midnight,
    And I've got a date with a fairy queen
    They chip and they chatter,
    What does it matter,
    They're alive and die but never love,
    2 timing slim
    Who's ever heard of him,
    I'll drag his corpse through the mud
