They Are Women, Hear Lou Roar

Some advanced Lou Reed lyrics, courtesy of Britt at the Advancement Foundation:


I love women, I think they're great
they're a solace to the world in a terrible state
They're a blessing to the eyes, a balm to soul
what a nightmare to have no women in the world

I love women
I love women
I love women
we all love women

I used to look at women in the magazines
I know that it was sexist, but I was in my teens
I was very bitter, all my sex was on the sly
I couldn't keep my hands off women, and I won't till I

I love women
ah, I love women
we love women
we all love women

A woman's love can lift you up, and women can inspire
I feel like buying flowers and hiring a celestial
A choir of castratis to serenade my love
they'd sing a little Bach for us and then we'd make

I love women
I love women
We all love women
we love women
This is truly advanced. What I like is that it is such an obvious thing to say--"I love women"--yet it's deceptively profound. It's sort of like "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)" in that way. Now, the castratis are a bit unnerving, but all in all, a spectacular advanced effort.
