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 »

When I was p poor young boy at school
Girls like you always played me for a fool
But now a time has come to lay to waste
The theory people have of getting an acquired taste
You treated me oh, so senselessly cruel
Oh, oh, baby, you were so senselessly cruel
From the beginnings I suspected the worst
And you didn't disappoint me
It was just that you were the first
Now, I wouldn't let you touch me if you were within a foot
And girl, I'm never ever gonna get hurt
Cause you treated me oooh, so senselessly cruel 
Oh, so senselessly cruel, oh, so senselessly cruel
