Beginning Of A Great Adventure - Lou Reed

It might be fun to have a kid that I could kick around

A little me to fill up with my thoughts

 

A little me or he or she to fill up with my dreams

A way of saying life is not a loss

 

I'd keep the tyke away from school and tutor him myself

Keep him from the poison of the crowd

 

But then again pristine isolation might not be the best idea

It's not good trying to immortalize yourself

 

Beginning of a great adventure

 

Beginning of a great adventure

 

Why stop at one, I might have ten, a regular TV brood

I'd breed a little liberal army in the wood

Just like these redneck lunatics I see at the local bar

 

with their tribe of mutant inbred piglets with cloven hooves

 

I'd teach 'em how to plant a bomb, start a fire, play guitar

And if they catch a hunter, shoot him in the nuts

 

I'd try to be as progressive as I could possibly be

As long as I don't have to try too much

 

Beginning of a great adventure

 

Beginning of a great adventure

 

Susie, Jesus, Bogart, Sam, Leslie, Jill and Jeff

Rita, Winny, Andy, Fran and Jet

 

Boris, Bono, Lucy, Ethel, Bunny, Reg and Tom

That's a lot of names to try not to forget

 

Carrie, Marlon, Mo and Steve, La Rue and Jerry Lee

Eggplant, Rufus, Dummy, Star and The Glob

 

I'd need a damn computer to keep track of all these names

I hope this baby thing don't go too far

 

I hope it's true what my wife said to me

 

I hope it's true what my wife said to me, hey

I hope it's true what my wife said to me

She says, "Baby, it's the beginning of a great adventure

 

Babe, beginning of a great adventure"

 

Take a look

 

It might be fun to have a kid that I could kick around

Create in my own image like a god

 

I'd raise my own pallbearers to carry me to my grave

And keep me company when I'm a wizened toothless clod

Some gibbering old fool sitting all alone drooling on his shirt

Some senile old fart playing in the dirt

 

It might be fun to have a kid I could pass something on to

Something better than rage, pain, anger and hurt

 

I hope it's true what my wife said to me

 

I hope it's true what my wife said to me

 

I hope it's true what my wife said to me

She says, "Lou, it's the beginning of a great adventure

 

Lou, Lou, Lou, beginning of a great adventure"

 

She says, babe, how you call your lover boy

 

Sylvia, quite you call your lover man
