Lou Reed
Walk on the Wild Side
Holly came from Miami, FLA
Hitch-hiked her way across the USA
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said: "Hey honey, take a walk on the wild side"
Candy came from out on the Island
In the back room she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
Said: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
And the coloured girls go
"Doo, do doo, do, do doo, do, do doo,..."
Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hussle there
New York City's the place where
They said: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
I said: "Hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side"
Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Looking for soul, food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should've seen them go, go, go
They said: "Hey sugar, take a walk on the wild side"
I said: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
All right, huh
Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that bash
Said: "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
I said, "Hey honey, take a walk on the wild side"
And the coloured girls say
"Doo, do doo, do, do doo, do, do doo,..."
