Lou Reed - Ooohhh Baby Lyrics




You're the kind of girl that
everybody's warned me about
You're the kind of person that
everybody's here staring at
But now you are a topless dancer
working out of a bar on Times Spuare
And everybody wishes you were back down in some corner
only Baby know, you make me go

Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh
Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh

Your old man was the best P and E man
down on the streets
And all the guy in the precinct
always was watching for him on the beat
But when he ripped off Seymour
he was really not a doing so fine
And everything is knots, well except -
- his hands and legs and maybe even mime
he see they just make them strip off, they say

Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh
ooohhh baby, ooohhh
Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh
hey, baby, ooohhh-ooohhh

It's very funny asking me
why they keep the lights on down so low
Well, yesterday's chase's today's competition
or didn't you know
And all the fluorescent lighting make so your wrinkles
they don't show
And it's very funny the way that
20 bucks an hour cannot go
if you don't make 'em go, now, now, now

Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh
ooohhh baby, ooohhh
Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh

Everybody wondered 'bout you when you was seen
in drinking some beer
You got here from Ohio and your mother said
you hooked her in the real near
that's the way it goes now

Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh
hey, shake your bones now, mama
Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ah
hey, ooohhh baby, ooohhh
walk it, now

(Ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh) Get down
(ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(Ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(Ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(Ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)
(ooohhh baby, ooohhh, ooohhh baby, ooohhh)

    You're the kind of girl that
    Everybody's warned me about
    You're the kind of person that
    Everybody's here staring at
    But now you are a topless dancer
    Working out of a bar on Times Spuare
    And everybody wishes you were back in the massage parlor back there
    Only Baby know, you make me go

    Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
    Ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh
    Ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby, ooohhh baby
    Ooohhh-ooohhh-ooohhh

    Down on the streets
    And all the guy in the precinct
    Always was watching for him on the beat

    He was really not a doing so fine
    And everything is knots, well except -
    - his hands and legs and maybe even mime
    He see they just make them strip off, they say

    It should be "your old man was the best B&E man" as in breaking and entering. Also, "and everything is knots, well 'cept his hands and legs and maybe even mine" not mime. Also it's "he's feelin' it, it's real bad baby oooh." Not "they just make them strip off." Not sure where Google got that one. A d " it's very funny the way that 20 bucks an hour can ah go" not "cannot go." Kinda changes meaning of the phrase. Lol Sorry to be so picky but with Lou gone now, we are all his only advocates and Google could care less if they get it wrong. ;)
