Lou Reed – I Want To Boogie With You lyrics

Hey pretty baby
Don't you think you might give me a chance
Get it on with me
Go downtown for some love and romance
And I know I ain't nothing
I ain't worth but a thin dime
But if you put your heart in my hands
I'm sure that I could change your mind

I wanna boogie with you
Yeah, I wanna boogie with you

There's something, baby, that your parents
Both agreed
And that is that they both had it
Deep distrust for me
And your best friend Frankie
Well I know your best friend Frankie, he wants to see me sink
And I don't much blame him for that
He gets so useless after so few drinks, you know, baby

I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you

Well I know your little baby sister
She thinks that I'm a flop
But I guess that you know that it's true
I spent more time at the bottom than the top
Tell your little sister
I know she wants to give me a whirl
But I don't have the time, baby
To wait till she's grown up and she's a woman, not a girl

Don't you know I wanna boogie with you
Hey, I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you, yeah

Boogie with you
Down on the corner
Boogie with you, yeah
