Berlin
Lou Reed Lyrics


This next-
Oh, thank you
This next song, we're gonna make believe
We're in, uh, Casablanca
And I'm Humphrey Bogart, and this is what I'm gonna sing to Lauren Bacall
And it's called Berlin

By Berlin, by the wall
You were five foot, ten inches tall
It was oh-so nice
Hey honey, it was candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

We were in a small cafe
And you could hear the guitars play
It was oh-so nice
Hey baby, it was, uh, paradise

You're right, woah, and I'm wrong
You know I'm going to miss you now that you're gone
One sweet day

You're right, woah, and I'm wrong
You know I'm going to miss you now that you're gone
One sweet day
One sweet day

We were in a small cafe
You could hear the guitars play
It was oh-so nice
Candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

Don't you forget, hire a vet
He hasn't had that much fun yet
It was oh-so nice
Hey honey, it was paradise

You're right and I'm wrong
You know I'm going to miss you now that you're gone
One sweet day

You're right, woah, and I'm wrong
You know I'm going to miss you now that you're gone
One sweet day
Oh, oh, one sweet day

One sweet day, one sweet day
One sweet day, baby, baby, one sweet day
One sweet day, baby, baby, one sweet day
Baby, baby, one sweet day

In Berlin, by the wall
You were five foot ten inches tall
It was very nice
Candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

We were in a small cafe
You could hear the guitars play
It was very nice
Oh honey, it was paradise

Here he is ok, first time listening and it's not my style but it's not bad but have you heard what he did in the Lulu album with Metallica?

Gary Watton Lou Reed began his career making explotation songs; later at his 20s wrote I’m waiting for my man, which is a song icon and still is for decades. As someone put it: not everyone knows the velvet underground; but everyone who have started a band, had listen to the velvet underground. Later, Lou reed’s solo career continues to influence musicians from everywhere; he was called the master of three chords. I don’t know, Erick Satie’s music was so simple, but incredible beautiful. So, is complexity what defines a musician? I think not.
