LOU REED - The Kids Lyrics

They're taking her children awayBecause they said she was not a good motherThey're taking her children awayBecause she was making it with sisters and brothersAnd everyone else, all of the othersLike cheap officers who wouldStand there and flirt in front of meThey're taking her children awayBecause they said she was not a good motherThey're taking her children awayBecause of the things that they heard she had doneThe black air force sergeant was not the first oneAnd all of the drugs she took, every one, every oneAnd I am the water boy, the real game's not over hereBut my heart is overflowin' anywayI'm just a tired man, no words to sayBut since she lost her daughterIt's her eyes that fill with waterAnd I am much happier this wayThey're taking her children awayBecause they said she was not a good motherThey're taking her children awayBecause number one was the girl friend from parisThe things that they did, ah, they didn't have to ask usAnd then the welshman from india, who came here to stayThey're taking her children awayBecause they said she was not a good motherThey're taking her children awayBecause of the things she did in the streetsIn the alleys and bars, no she couldn't be beatThat miserable rotten slut couldn't turn, anyone awayI am the water boy, the real game's not over hereBut my heart is overflowin' anywayI'm just a tired man, no words to sayBut since she lost her daughterIt's her eyes that fill with waterAnd I am much happier this way
