LOU REED


Coney Island Baby Lyrics

You know, man, when I was a young man in high school
You believe it or not, I wanted to play football for the coach
All those older guys, they said that he was mean and cruel
But you know, I wanted to play football for the coach
They said I was little too light weight to play line-back So I say I'm playing right-in
Wanted to play football for the coach Cause, you know some day, man, you gotta
stand up straight Unless you're gonna fall Then you're gonna die And
the straightest dude I ever knew Was standing right for me, all the
time So I had to play football for the coach And I wanted to play
football for the coach When you're all alone and lonely in your
midnight hour And you find that your soul, it has been up for sale
And you're getting to think about, all the things that you done
And you're getting to hate just about everything
But remember the princess who lived on the hill
Who loved you even though she knew you was wrong
And right now she just might come shining through
and the glory of love, glory of love
Glory of love, just might come through
And all your two-bit friends have gone and ripped you off
They're talking behind your back saying, man
you are never going to be no human being
And you start thinking again
About all those things that you've done
And who it was and what it was
And all the different things you made every different scene
Ah, but remember that the city is a funny place
Something like a circus or a sewer
And just remember, different people have peculiar tastes
And the Glory of love, the glory of love
The glory of love, might see you through
Yeah, but now, now
Glory of love, the glory of love
The glory of love, might see you through
Glory of love, ah, huh, huh, the glory of love
Glory of love, glory of love
Glory of love, now, glory of love, now
Glory of love, now, now, now, glory of love
Glory of love, give it to me now, glory of love see you through
Oh, my Coney Island baby, now
(I'm a Coney Island baby, now)
I'd like to send this one out for Lou and Rachel
And the Lord appeared and he has one made of two
Coney Island baby
Man, I swear, I'd give the whole thing up for you
