European Son
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


You killed your European son
You spit on those under twenty-one
But now your blue car's gone
You better say so long
Hey hey, bye bye bye
You made your wallpapers green
You want to make love to the scene
Your European son is gone
You'd better say so long
Your clown's bid you goodbye

Have-a-Cuppa-Tea

This album is so good it's ridiculous

Poodles

This song is the best part IMO

Rasendriya

So dang cinematic and vivid especially with the broken glass.
Listening to this feels like watching an entire gangster movie full of chase scenes and murder.

oskar

i always imagine the glass smashing to be some hobo breaking into the studio then jamming it out with the band

Ivo Lancaster

only the velvets could create something as crazy as this song lol no wonder they weren't mainstream in those days
sooo ahead of their timeee

swag

Dude you gotta listen to black midi - Schlagenheim youll love it

Michael Dams

you are absolutely right, this music is 50 years old !! and so much better than what is made today.

Ratelzwatel

This is sooo amazing!

Jim Metesky

Everything after the glass smashing is why this is the most influential album in rock history. Lyrics like "Heroin" and "Venus in Furs" and the glory of "Waiting for the Man" are icing on the cake.

Blues Chewy

48 people better say so long.
