Watch “Lou Reed – Walk On The Wild Side (Lyrics in Description)” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 5
    Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
    Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
    Plucked her eyebrows on the way
    Shaved her legs and then he was a she
    She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
    Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.

    Candy came from out on the island,
    In the backroom she was everybody’s darling,
    But she never lost her head
    Even when she was giving head
    She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side
    Said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
    And the colored girls go,

    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Little Joe never once gave it away
    Everybody had to pay and pay
    A hustle here and a hustle there
    New York City is 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 have seen him 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, alright, 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
    She 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 doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Songwriters: Lou Reed
