She says, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

Candy came from out on the island, in the backroom she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head even when she was giving head
She says, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
And the coloured girls go

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Little Joe never once gave it away, everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there, New York City is the place where they said
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

Sugar plum fairy came and hit the streets, lookin for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo, you should have seen him go go go
They said, hey sugar, take a walk on the wild side, I said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
All right, huh

Jackie is just speeding away, thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash, Valium would have helped that dash
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
And the coloured girls say

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

About the artist behind Walk On The Wild Side Tab:

Lou Reed (born March 2, 1942) is an influential American rock singer-songwriter and guitarist. He first came to prominence as the guitarist and principal singer-songwriter of The Velvet Underground (1965-1973). The band gained little mainstream attention during their career, but in hindsight became one of the most influential of their era.[1] As the Velvets’ principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined in rock and roll, including bondage and S&M ("Venus in Furs"), transvestites ("Sister Ray" and "Candy Says"), drug culture ("Heroin" and "I'm Waiting for the Man"), and transsexuals undergoing surgery ("Lady Godiva's Operation"). As a guitarist, he was a pioneer in the use of distortion, high volume feedback, and nonstandard tunings.

Reed began a long and eclectic solo career in 1971. He had a hit the following year with "Walk on the Wild Side", though for more than a decade Reed seemed to willfully evade the mainstream commercial success its chart status offered him.[2] One of rock's most volatile personalities, Reed's work as a solo artist has frustrated critics wishing for a return of The Velvet Underground. The most notable example is 1975's infamous double LP of recorded feedback loops, Metal Machine Music, upon which Reed later commented: "No one is supposed to be able to do a thing like that and survive." By the late 1980s, however, Reed had won wide recognition as an elder statesman of rock.

On April 12, 2008, Lou Reed married longtime companion Laurie Anderson in a private ceremony in Boulder, Colorado.[3]
