I'm waiting for my man
Got twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington, 125
Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive

    Nobody can sing it better than Lou. Even Nico or Bowie, it's Lou's song!

    The fact that I've listened to this song while on 125th street waiting for some grass makes it even better

    Strange to like a drug song so much, but not like drugs themselves at all, but that's the effectiveness of the tune, I guess.
