Louise (The Velvet Underground)

Louise, take it all back to town Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy coo Just can't shake it like you used to do Louise Louise, you used to work so hard No one could compare Always used to build a house They came from everywhere Men would scream The ladies faint The childrens weren't allowed No one on another bill could ever draw a crowd That was a long time ago How you keep it up, I just don't know Louise, take it all back to town Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy coo Just can't shake it like you used to do Louise, Louise Younger girls keep coming up, anxious for a chance They've all been to college, got degrees in modern dance Things keep getting rougher now Where they once was slick Old routines are getting tired Tassels just don't stick That was a long time ago How you keep it up, I just don't know Louise, take it all back in town Ain't it a shame you're too old to get around But everybody knows you used to dance the hoochy coo Just can't shake it like you used to do Louise, Louise Louise Ooh It's so very hard Every day slips away Away, away
