LOU REED - Beginning Of A Great Adventure Lyrics

It might be fun to have a kid that I could kick aroundA little me to fill up with my thoughtsA little me or he or she to fill up with my dreamsA way of saying life is not a lossI'd keep the tyke away from school and tutor him myselfKeep him from the poison of the crowdBut then again pristine isolation might not be the best ideaIt's not good trying to immortalize yourselfBeginning of a great adventureBeginning of a great adventureWhy stop at one, I might have ten, a regular tv broodI'd breed a little liberal army in the woodJust like these redneck lunatics I see at the local barWith their tribe of mutant inbred piglets with cloven hoovesI'd teach 'em how to plant a bomb, start a fire, play guitarAnd if they catch a hunter, shoot him in the nutsI'd try to be as progressive as I could possibly beAs long as I don't have to try too muchBeginning of a great adventureBeginning of a great adventureSusie, jesus, bogart, sam, leslie, jill and jeffRita, winny, andy, fran and jetBoris, bono, lucy, ethel, bunny, reg and tomThat's a lot of names to try not to forgetCarrie, marlon, mo and steve, la rue and jerry leeEggplant, rufus, dummy, star and the globI'd need a damn computer to keep track of all these namesI hope this baby thing don't go too farI hope it's true what my wife said to meI hope it's true what my wife said to me, heyI hope it's true what my wife said to meShe says, baby, it's the beginning of a great adventureBabe, beginning of a great adventureTake a lookIt might be fun to have a kid that I could kick aroundCreate in my own image like a godI'd raise my own pallbearers to carry me to my graveAnd keep me company when I'm a wizened toothless clodSome gibbering old fool sitting all alone drooling on his shirtSome senile old fart playing in the dirtIt might be fun to have a kid I could pass something on toSomething better than rage, pain, anger and hurtI hope it's true what my wife said to meI hope it's true what my wife said to meI hope it's true what my wife said to meShe says, lou, it's the beginning of a great adventureLou, lou, lou, beginning of a great adventureShe says, babe, how you call your lover boySylvia, quite you call your lover man
