I’m Waiting for the Man - Paris, 1972 lyrics

by

Lou Reed


Lou: Hello. Took us awhile to get here. This is a song about coping drugs in uh--drugs in New York. It's called I’m Waiting for My Man..." Three, four...

I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington, 125
Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man

Hey, white boy, what you doin’ uptown?
Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it's furthest from my mind
I'm just lookin' for a dear, dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man

Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
PR shoes and a big straw hat
He's never early, he’s always late
First thing you learn is that you always gotta wait
I’m waiting for my man
Oh, work it now

Up to a brownstone, up three flights of stairs
Everybody bodies pinned you, but nobody carеs
He's got the works, gives you sweet tastе
Ah, then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
I’m waiting for my man
Baby don't you holler, darlin' don't you bawl and shout
I’m feeling good, you know I'm gonna work it on out
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling, oh, so fine
Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man
Walk it home

Oh, it's alright
Huh huh
