Today's Advanced Song

"Animal Language" from the highly Advanced "Sally Can't Dance" by Lou Reed, which includes some wailing guitar solos, saxophone playing, and female backup singers. Here are the lyrics:

Miss Riley had a dog
she used to keep it in her backyard
And when the dog began to bark
all the neighbors began to shout
Then came a stormy night
Miss Riley let her dog out
And when the neighbors found him 'round
they put a gun down his mouth and shot him down
and he went

Ooohhh-wow, bow-wow
Ooohhh-wow, bow-wow

Miss Murphy had a cat
on her lap it sat
And once in a great big while
it looked like that Cheshire cat did smile
But often it used to chase
anything that crossed its face
But one day it got so hot
that Cheshire cat had a blood clot
and she said

Ooohhh-meow, me-meow
Ooohhh-meow, me-meow


And then the dog met the cat
the dog was hot and the cat was wet
Then came some sweaty dude
he put a board between the two
Then they couldn't get at it
got frustrated all about it
So they did the only thing you could do
they took the dude's sweat and shot it up between the two
and they said

Ooohhh-wow, bow-wow
Ooohhh-wow, bow, me, wow
That is Advanced. Oh, and the cover of the album is very Advanced as well, though instead of having a black leather jacket, dark sunglasses, and long hair in the back, he has a black leather jacket, dark sunglasses, and dyed-blond hair.
