About Ladies of the Road

Ladies of the Road is a live album (2-CD set) by the band King Crimson, released in 2002 and reissued in Japan in 2008. It is named after a song on the Islands album. The first disc consists of live recordings performed by the band's second active lineup (Robert Fripp, Boz Burrell, Mel Collins, Ian Wallace, Peter Sinfield) recorded in 1971 and 1972. The second disc consists of excerpts from performances of the song "21st Century Schizoid Man" recorded at the same time - these have been edited together to form a single 46-plus minute extended version of the song. The album is compiled in part from King Crimson Collectors' Club albums - limited release live recordings of concert performances, studio sessions and radio sessions.

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.
