The Lyrics

M&P's first attempt at a switcheroo parody... :-) If you do not know the OS, a low bit-rate MP3 can be found here
Do de do do do de do do de do de do...
Do de do do do de do do de do de do...
Do de do do do de do do de do de do do...

Miami FLA is a place down south
You see now Holly parts from home town
Now she's hitchin' about - she's breezin'
Eyebrows she's tweezin'
Now legs she gonna shave; take off hair
(Though she woulda got 'em quite clean with Nair)
He's now lotta quite 'she' ex-cept when bare

Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
Where maybe you'll try Candy from the Isle
Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
In back room she's headin' you with her smile furled

Young Joey's on a hustle down in New York too
Had 'em payin' not once, but two
Them Big-Apple-ists of him, were wary
Sugar plum fairy
Arrived from place un-named, hit the street
Hoped to find a lotta soul food to eat
At the Apollo where he go-go-go-go'd to beat, toot sweet

Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
9It's rude & crude tune, but it does beguile)
Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
And the misses of color do 'de do's' style-sure

(Do de do do do de do do de do de do...)
Do de do do do de do do de do de do...
Do de do do do de do do de do de do do...
Decadence sung Lou...
But Jackie wanted speed, unaware
That she ain't James Dean and iced self, who cared?
She's just injectin' and this sentence she then declared; beware:

Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
It's hard when you fly, crashin' down a mile
Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
Valium'd be aidin' her in that trial sure

Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
(AM Radio es-chewin' verses vile)
Oooh ambulate some on the wild side
And the misses of color do 'de do's' style-sure

Mixing Lou Reed with Cat Stevens is the sonic equivalent of putting Mentos into a jug of Diet Pepsi ... 555!

More like putting Marshmallow Peeps into sulfuric acid. But then again, Johnny is from Concord. That's near Lexington. One true five! (True Lou fans will get that one.)
