The Lady Is A Tramp Lyrics

She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
She likes the theater and never comes late
She never bothers with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like crap games with barons or earls
Won't go to Harlem in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt with the rest of the girls
That's why the lady is a tramp

She likes the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She's broke, and it's *"oke"*

Hates California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

She gets too hungry to wait for dinner at eight
She loves the theater but never comes late
She'd never bother with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

She'll have no crap games with sharpies and frauds
And she won't go to Harlem in Lincolns or Fords
And she won't dish the dirt with the rest of the broads
That's why the lady is a tramp

She'd love the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She's broke, but it's *"oke"*

Hates California, it's so cold and so damp
That's why the lady
That's why the lady
That's why the lady is a tramp

excellent song!!!....i think this song is about a man singin about how this genuine lady is labeled a "tramp" by society because she cuts through superficial social customs-one can easily assume he likes her because of that

An error occured.

this song is such a classic i luv it prolly one of my favorite frank songs

An error occured.

right, maestro, and also you get the feeling the other women are jelous of her because she's got real class.

Maestro's got it nailed. I tried to sing this to my girlfriend and she got offended. I shoulda sent her to this page

haha, clssic. probably should of thought that one through a little more.

great song, meanings been nailed already. just a great shot at how shallow and bitchy some women can be.

Everything is relative – someone’s insult can be another’s greatest complement.

yeah i got confused by it first but i reckon whats happened is some of the "broads" have been insulting her because she isnt like them, and she has a successful relationship with the narrator, so they called her a tramp.

and this song is what the narrator is sarcastically saying back to those bitchy women

An error occured.

I agree with maestro's meaning; a girl who doesn't act like everyone else and is criticized for it. I sure wish I could find a 'tramp'!

He changes the words sometimes to "this chick is a champ." I agree with the rest of you guys.

one bit i've never really understood was.

"Hates California, it's cold and it's damp"

i'm guessing this woman is from new york. i would of thought California would be warmer and have better weather than NY.

I was just analyzing this and it seems that this lyric is irony. I.e. she's such a contrarian she thinks sunny CA is cold and damp. But my mother thinks it's talking about San Francisco. I think in the context of the rest of the lyrics I'm right.
