Good Evening Mr. Waldheim - Lou Reed

God evening Mr. Waldheim

 

And Pontiff how are you?

 

You have so much in common

 

In the things you do

 

And here comes Jesse Jackson

 

He talks of common ground

 

Does that common ground include me

 

Or is it just a sound?

A sound that shakes

 

Oh Jesse, you must watch the sounds you make

 

A sound that quakes

 

There are fears that still reverberate

 

Jesse you say common ground

Does that include the P.L.O?

 

What about people right here, right now

Who fought for you not so long ago?

 

The words that flow so freely

 

Falling dancing from your lips

 

I hope that you don't cheapen them

With a racist slip

Oh common ground

 

Is common ground a word or just a sound?

 

Oh, oh, common ground

 

Remember those civil rights workers buried in the ground

 

If I ran for president

And once was a member of the Klan

 

Wouldn't you call me on it

 

The way I call you on Farrakhan?

 

And Pontiff, pretty Pontiff

Can anyone shake your hand ?

 

Or is it just that you like uniforms

And someone kissing your hand?

Or is it true

 

The common ground for me includes you too?

 

Oh, oh, is it true

 

The common ground for me includes you too?

 

Good evening Mr. Waldheim

 

Pontiff how are you?

 

As you both stroll through the woods at night

I'm thinking thoughts of you

 

And Jesse you're inside my thoughts

As the rhythmic words subside

 

My common ground invites you in

 

Or do you prefer to wait outside?

Or is it true

 

The common ground for me is without you?

 

Or is it true

 

The common ground for me is without you?

 

Oh is it true

 

There's no ground common enough for me and you?
