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 »

Won't you be my wagon wheel
Won't you tell me, baby, how do you feel
Hey you gotta live your life as though you're number one
Hey you gotta live yeah your life and make a point of having some fun
But if you think that you could get some flirting with danger
Danger ooo woo just kick her in the head and rearrange her

Oh, Heavenly Father, what can I do
She's done to me it's making me crazy
Oh, Heavenly Father, I know I have sinned
But look where I've been
It's makin me lazy

Won't you be my wagon wheel
Won't you tell me baby how does it feel
You gotta live your life as though you're number one
Yeah, you gotta live yeah your life and make a point of having some fun
But if you think that you could get to flirting with danger
Danger ooo woo just kick her in the head and rearrange her

And then why don't you wake me, shake me
Don't let me sleep too long
Why don't you wake me, shake me
Don't let me sleep too long
Don't want to miss it now
Wake me shake me baby
Don't let me sleep too long
Why don't you wake me shake me
Please don't let me sleep too long

Why don't you wake me -wake me- shake me -shake me-
Please don't let me sleep too long
Why don't you wake me -wake me- shake me -shake me-
Please don't let me sleep too long
Why don't you wake me -wake me- shake me -shake me-
Please don't let me sleep too long
Why don't you wake me -wake me- shake me -shake me-
Please don't let me sleep too long
