Lou Reed lyrics : "Coney Island Baby"

You know, man, when I was a young man in high school
You believe in or not I wanted to play football for the coach
And all those older guys

They said he was mean and cruel, but you know
Wanted to play football for the coach
They said I was to little too light weight to play line-backer

So I say Im playing right-end
Wanted to play football for the coach
cause, you know some day, man

You gotta stand up straight unless youre gonna fall
Then youre gone to die
And the straightest dude

I ever knew was standing right for me all the time
So I had to play football for the coach
And I wanted to play football for the coach


When youre all alone and lonely
In your midnight hour

And you find that your soul
Its been up for sale


And you begin to think bout
All the things that youve done
And you begin to hate

Just bout everything

But remember the princess who lived on the hill

Who loved you even though she knew you was wrong
And right now she just might come shining through
And the -


- glory of love, glory of love
Glory of love, just might come through


And all your two-bit friends
Have gone and ripped you off

Theyre talking behind your back saying, man
Youre never going to be no human being
And you start thinking again

bout all those things that youve done
And who it was and what it was
And all the different things you made every different scene


Ahhh, but remember that the city is a funny place
Something like a circus or a sewer

And just remember different people have peculiar tastes
And the -


- glory of love, the glory of love
The glory of love, might see you through
Yeah, but now, now

Glory of love, the glory of love
The glory of love, might see you through
Glory of love, ah, huh, huh, the glory of love

Glory of love, glory of love
Glory of love, now, glory of love, now
Glory of love, now, now, now, glory of love

Glory of love, give it to me now, glory of love see you through
Oh, my coney island baby, now
(Im a coney island baby, now)

Id like to send this one out for lou and rachel
And all the kids and p.s. 192
Coney island baby

Man, Id swear, Id give the whole thing up for you
