I Can't Stand It
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


It's hard being a man
Living in a garbage pail
My landlady called me up, oh
She tried to hit me with a mop

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more, oh
I can't stand it any more more

But if baby would just come back, it'd be all right
Yeah, if baby would just come back, it would be all right
Come on, baby

I live with thirteen dead cats
A purple dog that wears spats
They're all living out in the hall
And I can't stand it any more

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more

But if baby would just come back, it'd be all right
Oh, if baby would just come back, it would be all right
Be all right, now

Come on, baby

I'm tired of living all alone, yeah
Nobody ever calls me on the phone
But when things are getting better
I just play my music louder

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't stand it, I can't stand it ...

LiL MopHead

Sterling Blake you’re right. Trainspotting has so much truth in it.

Why are the Velvet Underground so much better than Lou Reed Solo??? I guess it's Sick Boys unifying theory

Shelley Albin was a beautiful, hugely charismatic babe, Lou's bigtime love at Syracuse University from 1961 on. Her parents hated and feared him (of course) as he was blatantly druggy and bisexual - and told her that if she went on dating him they'd pull her out of college. She inspired many of Lou's greatest works and yeah, this is one of his finest. The setting of the lyric matches his college lodgings. The weedy version on his first solo album is best ignored.

some of the greatest rhythm guitar you will ever hear.
