Sunday morning, praise the dawning
It's just a restless feeling by my side
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It's just the wasted years so close behind
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Sunday morning and I'm falling
I've got a feeling I don't want to know
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It's all the streets you crossed, not so long ago
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Sunday morning
Sunday morning
Sunday morning



I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington, 125
Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man
Hey, white boy, what you doin' uptown?
Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it's the furthest from my mind
I'm just lookin' for a dear, dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man
Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
Beat up shoes and a big straw hat
He's never early, he's always late
First thing you learn is you always gotta wait I'm waiting for my man
Up to a Brownstone, up three flights of stairs
Everybody's pinned you, but nobody cares
He's got the works, gives you sweet taste
Ah then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
I'm waiting for my man
Baby don't you holler, darlin' don't you bawl and shout
I'm feeling good, you know I'm gonna work it on out
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling oh so fine
Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man



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 37, 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 gonna 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



Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart



Teenage Mary said to Uncle Dave
I sold my soul, must be saved
Gonna take a walk down to Union Square
You never know who you're gonna find there
You gotta run, run, run, run, run
Take a drag or two
Run, run, run, run, run
Gypsy Death and you
Tell you whatcha do

Marguerita Passion had to get her fix
She wasn't well, she was getting sick
Went to sell her soul, she wasn't high
Didn't know, thinks she could buy it
And she would run, run, run, run, run
Take a drag or two
Run, run, run, run, run
Gypsy Death and you
Tell you whatcha do

Seasick Sarah had a golden nose
Hobnail boots wrapped around her toes
When she turned blue, all the angels screamed
They didn't know, they couldn't make the scene
She had to run, run, run, run, run
Take a drag or two
Run, run, run, run, run
Gypsy Death and you
Tell you whatcha do

Beardless Harry, what a waste
Couldn't even get a small-town taste
Rode the trolleys down to forty-seven
Figured he was good to get himself to heaven
'Cause he had to run, run, run, run, run Take a drag or two
Run, run, run, run, run
Gypsy Death and you
Tell you whatcha do



And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
A hand-me-down dress from who knows where
To all tomorrow's parties
And where will she go and what shall she do
When midnight comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door
And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
Why silks and linens of yesterday's gowns
To all tomorrow's parties
And what will she do with Thursday's rags When Monday comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door
And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
For Thursday's child is Sunday's clown
For whom none will go mourning
A blackened shroud, a hand-me-down gown
Of rags and silks, a costume
Fit for one who sits and cries
For all tomorrow's parties



I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I have made the big decision
I'm gonna try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
And you can't help me now, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off and dead
Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

'Cause when the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
Then thank God that I'm as good as dead
Then thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know



There she goes again
She's out on the streets again
She's down on her knees, my friend
But you know she'll never ask you please again
Now take a look, there's no tears in her eyes
She won't take it from just any guy, what can you do
You see her walkin' on down the street
Look at all your friends she's gonna meet
You better hit her
There she goes again
She's knocked out on her feet again
She's down on her knees, my friend
But you know she'll never ask you please again
Now take a look, there's no tears in her eyes
Like a bird, you know she would fly, what can you do
You see her walkin' on down the street
Look at all your friends that she's gonna meet
You better hit her
Now take a look, there's no tears in her eyes
Like a bird, you know she will fly, fly, fly away
See her walking on down the street
Look at all your friends that she's gonna meet
She's gonna bawl and shout
She's gonna work it
She's gonna work it out, bye bye
Bye bye baby



I'll be your mirror
I'll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don't know
I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you're home
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I find it hard to believe you don't know
The beauty that you are
But if you don't let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I'll be your mirror



The myriad choices of his fate
Set themselves out upon a plate
For him to choose
What had he to lose
Not a ghost bloodied country
All covered with sleep
Where the black angel did weep
Not an old city street in the east
Gone to choose
And wandering's brother
Walked on through the night
With his hair in his face
On a long splintered cut from the knife of G.T.
The rally man's patter ran on through the dawn
Until we said so long
To his skull-shrill yell
Shining brightly red-rimmed and
Red-lined with the time
Infused with the choice of the mind
On ice skates scraping chunks

This is one of the best VU songs.  It's the first
track on their third album, "The Velvet Underground"; and is written (of
course) by Lou Reed. A "closet mix" version is also available on the new VU
box set. Enjoy.

VERSE 1:
D       F#m  F                B
  Candy says, I've come to hate my body,
Em              A
  and all that it requires
  D              A
  in this world.
D       F#m  F               B
  Candy says, I'd like to know completely,
Em             A
  what other souls discreetly
  D           A
  talk about.

CHORUS:
D           G                    E
  I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly,
A
  over my shoulder.
D           G                    E
  I'm gonna watch them pass me by,
  A
  maybe when I'm older.
C                       G
  What do you think I'd see,
     A                      C
  if I could walk away from me?    (4 beat pause)

VERSE 2: (same chords as verse 1)
Candy says, I hate the quite places,
that cause the smallest taste
of what will be.
Candy says, I hate the big descisions,
that cause endless revisions
in my mind.

CHORUS (again)

EXTRO:
D (8 bts)           G (8 bts)
..........Doo, Doo, Whaa.........
D                   G
Doo.......Doo, Doo, Whaa......... (x4)

(end on)
D
Doo...

It is kind of difficult to convey where exactly the chords change, as they
don't line up perfectly with the words.  Every chord lasts for 4 beats and
the words are placed over them.  There is also a lot of chord picking that
goes on that I have no clue how to play.  And that's it...





D  C  D  C
           D C        D  C
What goes on in your mind?
             F      G       D  C
I think that I am falling down
           D C         D  C
What goes on in your mind?
             F      G      D
I think that I am upside down
          A                  G
Lady, be good, do what you should
                  D           C D C
you know it will work alright
          A                  G
Lady, be good, do what you should
                 D         C D C
you know it will be alright

I'm going up, and I'm going down
I'm gonna fly from side to side
See the bells up in the sky
Somebody's cut their string in two
Lady, be good, do what you should
you know it will work alright
Lady, be good, do what you should
you know it will be alright

SOLO

One minute born, one minute doomed
One minute up, and one minute down
What goes on in your mind?
I think that I am falling down
Lady, be good, do what you should
you know it will work alright
Lady, be good, do what you should
you know it will be alright





  F
  Sometimes I feel so happy
  Bb
  Sometimes I feel so sad
  F                            Dm
  Sometimes I feel just about everything
  Bb         C            F
  Lately I'm just feeling bad
  Bb         C            F
  Lately I'm just feeling bad

         C                 F   C   F
  Linger on your pale blue eyes

  I thought of you as my mountain top
  I thought of you as my peak
  I thought of you as just about everything
  I had but couldn't keep
  I had but couldn't keep

If I could make the world as pure
And strange as what I see
I'd put you in the mirror
I put in front of me
I put in front of me

(Line three may be wrong!)
Skip the life completely
Stuff it in a cup
She said my knee is like us in time
It lies but can't stand up
Down for you is up

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves you're my best friend
But it's truly truly a sin


        Sometimes I feel so happy
        sometimes I feel so sad
        Sometimes I feel so happy
        but mostly you just make me mad
        Baby, you just make me mad

        Linger on your pale blue eyes
        Linger on your pale blue eyes

        Thought of you as my mountain top
        thought of you as my peak
        Thought of you as everything
        I've had, but couldn't keep
        I've had, but couldn't keep

        Linger on your pale blue eyes
        Linger on your pale blue eyes

        If I could make the world as pure
        and strange as what I see
        I'd put you in a mirror
        I'd put in front of me
        I'd put in front of me

        Linger on your pale blue eyes
        Linger on your pale blue eyes

        Skip a life completely
        stuff it in a cup
        She said: Money is like us in time
        it lies, but can't stand up
        Down for you is up

        Linger on your pale blue eyes
        Linger on your pale blue eyes

        It was good, what we did yesterday
        and I'd do it once again
        The fact that you are married
        only proves your my best friend
        But it's truely, truely a sin

        Linger on your pale blue eyes
        Linger on your pale blue eyes

NOTE:  Obviously it's impossible to write lyrics to this song since so
much of it is ad lib.  I got this version from the lyrics archive.
They're about as good as they can get, but use them with a grain of salt!





C
      I've been set free and
F               Dm
      I've been bound
C
      To the memories of
F                 Dm
      Yesterday's clouds
C
      I've been set free and
F               Dm
      I've been bound

      And now
C             F
      I'm set free
C             F
      I'm set free
      C               F            Dm   G
      I'm set free to find a new illusion

I've been blinded but
Now I can see
What in the world has
Happend to me
The prince of stories who
Walks right by me
And now
I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find a new illusion

I've been set free and
I've been bound
Let me tell you people
What I found
I saw my head laughing
Rolling on the ground
And now
I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find a new illusion

Instead of C,F,Dm,G you can use for example D,G,Em,A; E,A,F#,B; G,C,Am,D;
A,D,Bm,E





Bb         Eb          F
That's the story of my life
C          F                            G
That's the difference between wrong and right
F         G    Am                   G
But Billy said both those words are dead
Dm                     G
That's the story of my life

Repeat twice

Instrumental break:

C-F-G
C-F-G
F-G-Am
Dm-G

Repeat verse again, end on G.

These are the chords in standard tuning. You may find it easier to use a
capo and transpose to chords that are somewhat easier to play. Capo on
third fret would make the progression:

G-C-D
A-D-E
D-E-F#m-D
Bm-E





This is a great VU song, sung by Mo Tucker and covered I understand by
 REM. Play this on an acoustic and drop the tuning a half-step.

Standing on the corner, suitcase in my hand
Jack is in his coat, and Jane is her vest, and me
I'm in a rock'n'roll band  Hah!
Ridin' in a Stutz-Bearcat, Jim
Y'know, those were different times!
Oh, all the poets they studied rules of verse
And the ladies, they rolled their eyes
Sweet Jane!  Whoa!  Sweet Jane, oh-oh-a!  Sweet Jane!

I'll tell you something
Jack, he is a banker
And Jane, she is a clerk
Both of them save their monies, ha
And when, when they come home from work
Sittin' down by the fire, oh!
The radio does play
The classical music there, Jim
"The March of the Wooden Soldiers"
All you protest kids
You can hear Jack say, get ready, ah
Sweet Jane!  Come on baby! Sweet Jane! Oh-oh-a!  Sweet Jane!

Some people, they like to go out dancing
And other peoples, they have to work, Just watch me now!
And there's even some evil mothers
Well they're gonna tell you that everything is just dirt
Y'know that, women, never really faint
And that villains always blink their eyes, woo!
And that, y'know, children are the only ones who blush!
And that, life is just to die!
And, everyone who ever had a heart
They wouldn't turn around and break it
And anyone who ever played a part
Oh wouldn't turn around and hate it!

Sweet Jane!  Whoa-oh-oh!  Sweet Jane! Sweet Jane!
 D            G         D
Sweet Jane  Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane  Sweet Jane (repeat and fade)




This is the same song originally done by the Velvet Underground.
It was done on the Runaways(Joan Jetts' first band) first release
and it features a real cool riff.  The song is in 4/4 and we used
to start it by having the drummer play a steady beat on the cow
bell.  Here is our arrangement:

Stephanie says that she wants to know
G         C       G               C

G               C             G                     C

Between worlds so the people ask her 'cause it's all in her mind
