Lou Reed lyrics : "Teach The Gifted Children"

Teach the gifted children
teach them to have mercy
Teach them about sunsets

teach them about moonrise
Teach them about anger
the sin that comes with dawning

Teach them about flowers
the beauty of forgetfulness
Then take me to the river (take me to the river)

and put me in the water (and put me in the water)
Bless them and forgive them (take me to the river)
father cause they just don't know (take me to the river)

All the gifted children

Teach the gifted children

the way of men and animals
Teach them about cities
the history of the mysteries

Their vice and their virtues
about branches that blow in the wind
On the wages of their sins

teach them of forgiveness
teach them about mercy
Teach them about music

and the cool and cleansing waters
What do they say, take me to the river (take me to the river)
take me to the river (take me to the river)

Put me in the water (take me to the river)
and teach the gifted children (take me to the river)
All the gifted children (take me to the river)

(Take me to the river)
(Take me to the river)
