"Tramp" is a song included as a track on the Stranglers' sixth studio album, La Folie.[1] "Tramp" was originally thought to be the ideal follow-up to their Top Ten hit single, "Golden Brown". However Jean-Jacques Burnel convinced fellow band members that another track "La Folie" was a much better choice.[2] This backfired when "La Folie" peaked at No. 47 in the UK Singles Chart.[3]
