LOU REED - Street Hassle Lyrics

A) waltzing matildaWaltzing matilda whipped out her walletThe sexy boy smiled in dismayShe took out four twenties 'cause she liked round figuresEverybody's a queen for a dayOh, babe, I'm on fire and you know how I admire your -- body why don't we slip awayAlthough I'm sure you're certain, it's a rarity me flirtin'Sha-la-la-la, this wayOh, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-laHey, baby, come on, let's slip awayLuscious and gorgeous, oh what a hunk of muscleCall out the national guardShe creamed in her jeans as he picked up her meansFrom off of the formica topped barAnd cascading slowly, he lifted her whollyAnd boldly out of this worldAnd despite people's derisionProved to be more than diversionSha-la-la-la, later onAnd then sha-la-la-la-la, he entered her slowlyAnd showed her where he was coming fromAnd then sha-la-la-la-la, he made love to her gentlyIt was like she'd never ever comeAnd then sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-laWhen the sun rose and he made to leaveYou know, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-laNeither one regretted a thingB) street hassleHey, that cunt's not breathingI think she's had too muchOf something or other, hey, man, you know what I meanI don't mean to scare youBut you're the one who came hereAnd you're the one who's gotta take her when you leaveI'm not being smartOr trying to be cold on my partAnd I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeveBut you know people get all emotionalAnd sometimes, man, they just don't act rationalThey think they're just on tvSha-la-la-la, manWhy don't you just slip her awayYou know, I'm glad that we met manIt really was nice talkingAnd I really wish that there was a little more time to speakBut you know it could be a hassleTrying to explain myself to a police officerAbout how it was that your old lady got herself stiffedAnd it's not like we could helpBut there was nothing no one could doAnd if there was, man, you know I would have been the firstBut when someone turns that blueWell, it's a universal truthAnd then you just know that bitch will never fuck againBy the way, that's really some bad shitThat you came to our place withBut you ought to be more careful around the little girlsIt's either the best or it's the worstAnd since I don't have to chooseI guess I won't and I know this ain't no way to treat a guestBut why don't you grab your old lady by the feetAnd just lay her out on the darkened streetAnd by morning, she's just another hit and runYou know, some people got no choiceAnd they can't never find a voiceTo talk with that they can even call their ownSo the first thing that they seeThat allows them the right to beWhy they follow it, you know, it's called bad luckC) slipawayBelieve me, that it's just a lieThat's what she tells her friends'cause the real song, the real songWhich she won't even admit to herselfBeat narrow heart, the song lots of people knowIt's a painful songIt'll only say the truthIt lasts for sad songsPenny for a wishA wish won't make you a soldierA pretty kiss or a pretty faceCan't have it's wayThe tramps like us who were born to playLove is gone awayAnd there's no one here nowAnd there's nothing left to sayBut, oh, how I miss him, babyOh, baby, come on and slip awayCome on, baby, why don't you slip awayLove is gone awayTook the rings off my fingersAnd there's nothing left to sayBut, oh how, oh how I need him, babyCome on, baby, I need you babyOh, please don't slip awayI need your loving so bad, babePlease don't slip away
