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 »

The first bite of the apple made Eve smart
The second bite taught her how to break men's hearts
The third bite taught her how to strut her stuff
But she never got to the fourth bite, that says :
Enough is enough

Enough is enough, I've had enough of you
You can keep your dresses, you can keep your jewels
You can keep the color TV, those soaps just make me sick
All I'm asking you leave me, is my little red joystick

My red joystick, my red joystick
All I'm asking you leave me, is my little red joystick
My red joystick, my red joystick
All I'm asking you leave me, is my little red joystick

Eve kissed Able, that's how he got murdered by Cain
Abraham gave up his son, to keep his wife away
And even the Load almighty, speaking from the trenches to the pits
Spoke for all of mankind, when he said

Take the Porsche, take the kids, take the stocks
Take the rugs, take those roses from my poor heart wilting
But, please, please, please

Leave me my red joystick, leave me my red joystick
Leave me my red joystick, leave me my red joystick

Eve drank apple cider, Eve brewed good apple wine
Eve cooked up stewed apples, knew how to have a good time
She came into the bathroom, raised her skirts up high
She said, 'If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, baby
Give me a piece before I die

Hey, Eve take a bite of my apple
I know you think you're pretty slick
The one thing I ask you to leave me is my red joystick

My red joystick, my red joystick
All I'm asking you leave me, is my little red joystick
My red joystick, my red joystick
All I'm asking you leave me, is my little red joystick
My red joystick
