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 »

Christopher Columbus discovered America
Found he had a cornucopia
Gave love to the Indians, they gave it back
A pow wow in the teepee is where it's at

I want to dance with you
I want to dance with you
I want to dance with you
I want to dance with you

The Indian fought with his arrow and bow
Till General Custer lost to Sitting Bull
Scalped all day and scalped all night
Give me fire, water; gonna buy me a wife


When your people first moved to our block
Our ancestors met with culture shock
Two different monkeys from two different trees
Come on, let's stop our fightin', and come dance with me

Come on, dance with me
Come on and dance with me
'Cause I really want to dance with you
I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me
