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 »

Hey, pretty baby
Don't you think you might give me a chance
Get it on with me
Go down-town for some loving romance
And I know I ain't nothing
I ain't worth but a thin dime
But if you put your heart in my hands
I'm sure that I could change your mind

I want to boogie with you
Yeah, I want to boogie with you

There's something, baby, on which your parents
Both agree
And that is that they both have a
Deep distrust for me
And your best friend Frankie
Well, I know, your best friend Frankie, he wants to see me sink
And I don't much blame him for that
He gets so useless after so few drinks, you know, baby

I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you

Well, I know your little baby sister
She thinks that I'm a flop
Well, I guess that you know that it's true
I spent more time at the bottom than the top
Tell your little sister
I know she wants to give me a whirl
But I don't have the time, baby
To wait till she's grown up, and she's a woman, not a girl

Don't you know, I want to boogie with you
Hey, I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you
I want to boogie with you, yeah

Boogie with you
Down by the corner
We'll be able to, yeah
