"Coney Island Baby"

When I was a young man in high school

I want to play football for the coach


The older guys said he's he's mean and he's cruel now

I want to play football for the coach

I was to little too light weight to go out for line-backer

I want to line-backer

The grass is always green

So I went out for right-end

Actually I was ...

I went for the section at eight six right

That's pathetic

Big mac

Cause some day, man, you gotta stand up straight

Unless you're gonna fall

And then you're going to die

Going to die

And the straightest dude I ever knew

Was standing right by me, all the time

But I had to play football for the coach

And I wanted to play football for the coach

I have eightball with the coach

And I wanted to do it with the coach

When you're all alone and lonely baby baby in your midnight hour

And you find out that your soul don't you know that your soul, it has been up for sale

And you start thinking ah baby you've been doing too much drinking and thinking

Bout all the things that you've done

Listening people that ... that shouldn't have fun with who it was and what it was

And all those things all those things you hear and this....

And this...

Remember the princess who lived on the hill

Oh man baby who loved you even though she knew you was wrong

And right now she just might come shining through and the -

Glory of love, glory of love

Uuh sweet nuthin' won't you tell me bout the glory of love

Oh baby I miss you now and the

Glory of love it just might see you through

Don't you know it might happen to you

And all your two-bit friends they've gone and they ripped you right off

Says everything

Says Hey hey Lou Reed there's no way you live okay a human being

But things are not the same

You're walking in the train

And you start thinking you're doing too much thinking

And they said said said

Look at all those things that you've done

And I said what it was and and who it was

And all those things I hear that they say go on

Hey Lou they said Go on

Remember that the city is a funny place

Something like a circus or a sewer

And right now like a circus or a sewer for you baby

And baby baby the glory of love

And the glory of love, the glory of love

The glory of love, might see you through

Glory of love, the glory of love

The glory of love, might see you through

Glory of love don't you know, the glory of love

Glory of love, glory of love

Glory of love, now, glory of love, now

Glory of love, baby now, baby now, oh baby, glory of love

Don't you tell me

Don't you know

Glory of love, give it to me now, glory of love see you through

Don't you know I'm just a Coney Island baby, now

It might happen to you

Don't you know it might see you through

Baby baby baby baby

Don't you know

One two, one two three four


"Street Hassle"

a. Waltzing Matilda

Waltzing Matilda she whipped out her wallet

And the sexy boys smiled in dismay

She whipped out four twenties, 'cause she liked brown figures

Don't you know that everybody's fucking queer for a day

Babe, don't you know how much I'm on fire and your body I fucking admire man

Why don't we just fucking go and slip away, hey

I know you're certain, it's a rarity me flirtin'

You know she-la-la-la this way, hey

Oh, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la

Hey, baby, come on, let's slip away

Let's walk the middle way

Luscious and lovely, hey what a fucking hunk of muscle

Why don't you hey go and call out the National Guard man

Hey she creamed in her jeans as he picked up her knees

From off of the formica topped board

And cascading slowly, man he just he lifted her body wholly

Oh wholly out of this world

And despite people's derision proved to be more than diversion

And then hey

Sha-la-la-la, later on she says

And then sha-la-la-la-la, as he entered her slowly

And showed her where he was coming from

And then sha-la-la-la-la


It was like she never ever come

And then sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la

And later when the sun set and he made her leave

See baby

Hey man neither one fucking regretted a thing

Oh whoa

That was beautiful

That was beautiful


Why don't you slip away

Oh baby ooh baby

Slip away


b. Street Hassle

Hey, you know man that chick that bee you know I think she had too much

Of somebody you know what I mean

Hey I don't mean to scare you, but you're the one who came here right

So you're the one gotta take her when you leave

Hey look man I'm not trying to be smart be cold...

And I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeve

Hey look man people get emotional and don't act rational

They think they're on TV

Hey look it was really nice meeting

It was really nice talking

And I really wish we had a little more we could meet

But you know it could turn into some kind of a hassle

Trying to explain to a fucking police officer

How your old lady got her ass stiffed

Hey look man there's nobody could help

And there's nobody could do a thing

And if there was I would be fucking first man

Look somebody turns that blue

It's fucking universal truth man

That chick ain't gonna fuck again

Hey look man by the way, that's some bad shit

That you came our place with

Maybe you ought to be a little more careful around these little girls

Hey look man it's either best or it's the fucking worst

I don't gotta choose so I won't

And I know, this is no way to treat a guest

But why don't you grab your old lady by the feet

You go drag her out to the darkest street

Tomorrow morning man she's just another hit and run

Hey look man some people don't have a choice

They don't even have a voice they can talk with

Just call their own

So the first thing they see allows them the right to be

They go ahead and they follow it what else do they want

You know, what it's called

Bad luck

c. Slip Away

Love has gone away

And there's no one here now

And there's nothing left to say

Oh, how I miss him, baby

Oh, baby, come on and slip away

Come on, baby

Why don't you slip away

Love has gone away

Took the rings right of my fingers

And there's nothing left to say

But, oh how, oh how I need you, baby

Come on, baby, I need you baby

Oh, please don't slip away

I need your loving so bad, babe

Please don't slip away

Slip away

The guy who walks around when you put your stuff like in the fucking ... and they say If you ... we throw it in the water. That was an afternoon. .... Wow I was shocked, I was taken aback and then he saw. So the guys who did the Threepennyopera this is all true. Call me up they said. We think you're a very literate rock n' roll person. And after a day we think you're the person that could take Nelson Algren's book Walk On The Wild Side and do like a musical thing for off-Broadway. I said You gotta be kidding ..cripples in a ghetto, man. What do you have in mind. They said Oh but you know. Very serious intense ... like grey hair ... Park Avenue... oh well I'm not.. I'm a fucking typist at this point. You gotta understand man. People say oh Lou you're ... I got forty dollars a week you gotta be kidding. These assholes wanna treat me for a book that's about cripples. I'm the best ... person to write a book about cripples in music. Kill yourselves man. It's better to be a garage mechanic I think. As long as I keep thinking that I you know. What if it wasn't true. .... Hey schmuck. It was really groovy all the time being a garage mechanic.... oh wow. ... cause you would not listen. ... So they say Go buy a paperback version, they didn't give me a version. Alright. I said it's abridged. Oh a movie with Jane Fonda. I said Now you got it. I like to look at Jane Fonda ... ....

"Leave Me Alone"

Everybody's gonna try to tell you what to do, ha

And never, never, never, never, let it be said that it's true

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Don't you know some people, they just don't know when to stop

They can't tell the floor from the ceiling or the top

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Don't you know some people, they just don't know when to stop

They can't tell the floor from the ceiling or the top

Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me forever

Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me forever

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me alone

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

Ah-ha-ha, oh, oh, yeah

And there're other types, they always make you wait

And they're always the first to say, the state you come from

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me, leave me alone

Leave me alone

Who Am I?
(Lou Reed)

Sometimes I wonder who am I
The world seeming to pass me by
A younger man now getting old
I have to wonder what the rest of life will hold
I hold the mirror to my face
There are some lines that I could trace
To memories of loving you
The passion that breaks reason in two
I have to think and stop me now
These reminisces make you frown
One thinks of what one hoped to be
And then faces reality
I wonder who started all this
Was god in love and gave a kiss
To who someone who later betrayed
And godless love sent us away
Sometimes I wonder who am I
Who made the trees who made the sky
Who made the storms who made heartbreak
I wonder how much life I can take
I see at last a future self
With you oh life I ask you help
But thinking but thinking puts me in a day
And thinking never helped me anyway
You always were so negative
You always stared upon the edge
And dreamed of what it must be to be dead
I know I like to dream a lot
And think of other worlds that are not
I hate that I need air to breathe
I'd like to leave this body and be free
I'd like to float like a mystic child
I'd like to kiss an angel on the brow
I'd like to solve the mystery of life
Like cutting someone's ... removing their heart
You like so see it beat
You like to hold your eye
And though you know I'm dead
You like to hold my ...
As if is wrong think of this
To hold the death as in your fist
Why were we given the memories
That all lose are minds and set free
Sometimes I wonder who am I
The world seeming to pass me by
A younger man now getting old
I have to wonder what the rest of life will hold
I wonder
I wonder
I wonder who started this
Was god in love and gave a kiss
To someone who later betrayed
And godless love sent us away
To someone who later betrayed
And godless love sent us away
