“Walk On The Wild Side”
Artist: Lou Reed
Albums: Transformer (1972)

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
She said, Hey honey
Take a walk on the wild side

Candy came from out on the Island
In the backroom she was everybody's darlin'
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 colored girls go doo do doo do doo do do doo...

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle 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
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should've seen 'em 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 colored girls say, doo do doo do doo do do doo...


Live (1975)

Holly came from Miami FLA
Hitch-hiked her way across the USA
Plucked her eyebrows along the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says hey honey
Do take a walk on the wild side
Aa-ah hey babe
Take a walk on the wild side

Candy came from out on the Island
In the backroom she was just everybody's darlin'
She never lost her head
Even when she was giving good head
She said hey man
Take a walk on the wild side
I said hey pretty
Take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls go
Doo do doo do doo doo do doo
Doo do doo do doo doo do doo
Doo do doo wooh doo do doo
Doo doo doo ooh ooh de do de do

(Doo do doo do doo doo do doo)
(Doo do doo do doo doo do doo)
(Doo do doo do doo doo do doo)
(Doo do doo do doo doo do doo)

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay pay pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City's the place where they said hey man
Take a walk on the wild side
I said hey girl
Take a walk on the wild side

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and oh place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should've seen 'em go go go
They said hey ba-a-a-aby
Take a walk on the wild side
I said hey man
Why don't you go take a walk
On wild side
