=======================================
"I'm Waiting For The Man"
=======================================
album _The Velvet Underground and Nico_
(The Velvet Underground, 1967)

written by Lou Reed
=======================================


        I'm waiting for my man
        26 dollars in my hand
        Up to Lexington 125
        feelin' sick and dirty more dead than alive
        I'm waiting for my man

        Hey white boy, what you doin' uptown
        Hey white boy, you chasin' our women around
        Oh pardon me sir, it's furthest from my mind
        I'm just lookin' for a dear dear friend of mine
        I'm waiting for my man

        Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
        PR shoes and a big straw hat
        He's never early, he's always late
        first thing you learn is that you always gotta wait
        I'm waiting for my man, ah, work it now

        Up to a brownstone, up three flights of stairs
        Everybody-body's pinned you, but nobody cares
        He's got the works, gives you sweet taste
        ah, then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
        I'm waiting for my man

        Baby don't you holler, darling don't you ball and shout
        I'm feeling good, you know I'm gonna work it on out
        I'm feeling good, I'm feelin' oh so fine
        until tomorrow but that's just some other time
        I'm waiting for my man, walk it home
