Andy's Chest

The Velvet Underground

If I could be anything in the world that flew 
I would be a bat and come swooping after you 
And if the last time you were here things were a bit askew 

Well you know what happens after dark 
When rattlesnakes lose their skins and their hearts 
And all the missionaries lose their bark 
Oh, all the trees are calling after you 
And all the venom snipers after you 
Are all the mountains bolder after you? 

If I could be anyone of the things in this world that bite 
Instead of an ocelot on a leash, I'd rather be a kite 
And be tied to the end of your string 
And flying in the air, babe, at night 
Cause ou know what they say about honey bears 
When you shave off all their baby hair 
You have a hairy minded pink bare bear 

And all the balls are rolling out for you 
And stones are all erupting out for you 
And all the cheap bloodsuckers are flying after you 

Yesterday, Daisy Mae and Biff were grooving on the street 
And just like in a movie, her hands became her feet 
Her belly button was her mouth 
Wich meant she tasted what she'd speak 

But the funny thing is what happened to her nose 
It grew until it reached all of her toes 
Now when people say her feet they mean her nose 

And curtains laced with diamonds dear for you 
And all the Roman Noblemen for you 
And kingdom's Christian Soldiers dear for you 
And melting ice cap mountain tops for you 
And knights in flamming silver robes for you 
And bats that with a kiss turn prince for you 
Swoop, Swoop 
oh baby, 
Rock Rock 
Swoop, Swoop, Rock, Rock
