Lou Reed

Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (born March 2, 1942) is an American rock musician, songwriter, and photographer. He is best known as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of The Velvet Underground, and for his solo career, which has spanned several decades. Though the Velvet Underground were a commercial failure in the late 1960s, the group has gained a considerable cult following in the years since its demise and has gone on to become one of the most widely cited and influential bands of the era. As the Velvet Underground's principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined so openly in rock and roll, including sexuality and drug culture. more »

Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.
 
Candy came from out on the island,
In the backroom she was everybody's darling,
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side
Said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls go, 
 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
 
Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City is the place where they said:
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side
 
Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should have seen him go, go, go
They said, hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
I said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, alright, huh
 
Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that bash
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls say 
 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
