Femme Fatale
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Here she comes, you better watch your step
She's going to break your heart in two, it's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down, what a clown

'Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

You're put down in her book
You're number thirty seven, have a look
She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy, she's from the street
Before you start, you're already beat
She's going to play you for a fool, yes it's true

'Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

'Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
Ooh ooh oh
(She's a femme fatale)
Ooh ooh oh

@Danevv Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People call say 'beware doll, you're bound to fall'
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal

I remember this specific week two years ago. I was in a total wreck car accident. My high scho friends had robbed my parents house. I had to pay out family and insurance leaving me pretty much broke cause I was a student living with my gf at 19 years old. And I remember she was having finical issues with school and work so I tried my best to support her too.
I remember going to her job to pick her up(rental car) after her shift and letting her drive home cause I was exhausted from school, work, all the Financial problems and feeling the burden of a large chunk of friends that crossed me.

I remember sitting in the passenger seat and letting her drive as I laid down and rest. As we approached home, I remember this song playing as she sung it. And I thought to myself

“ I can’t believe I’m going to have a friend for life”

It felt home before we even made it. Seeing her sing.

I haven’t spoken to her in a year.

Out of the 5 years I knew her. This has been the loneliest.

The fact is.... Nico was perfect for the velvet underground. there couldn't have been a better choice. i understand if you think it sounds a bit strange.. she doesn't sing like most people, out of tune even at times.. But it's perfect

James Glass

MASTERPIECE 😍🇬🇧

The only out of tune- or, is it off-key, singers I hear are the background singers, I presume multiple Lou Reeds.
The reverb is awesome

Nick

Nico was gorgeous on this album..

olleksry cendre

Her voice is more better,then Dylan's,imho.

She sings it perfectly ,,,it’s the guitars that are totally out of tune ,,but funnily it does suit the song
