"Painted Ladies" is a 1973 hit recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Ian Thomas. It was released as part of his solo career on the album Ian Thomas. The song reached #4 on the Canadian charts and made the U.S. Top 40 (peaking at #34). Reportedly the chorus was written about his stay at a nightclub in the Kitchener-Waterloo area which had a strip club on a different level and rooms above. The painted ladies referenced in the song are about the dancers in the club. The streetcars and airplanes referenced the area of Toronto and Mississauga with the Toronto International Airport, another area famous for its strip clubs.
