Guitar Chords for SICK OF YOU LOU REED    

===================
"Sick Of You"
===================
album _New York_
(Lou Reed, 1989)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        I was up in the morning with the TV blarin'
        brush my teeth sittin' watchin' the news
        All the beaches were closed the ocean was a Red Sea
        but there was no one there to part in two
        There was no fresh salad because there's hypos in the cabbage
        Staten Island disappeared at noon
        And they say the midwest is in great distress
        and NASA blew up the moon

        The ozone layer has no ozone anymore
        and you're gonna leave me for the guy next door
        I'm Sick of You
        I'm Sick of You

        They arrested the Mayor for an illegal favor
        sold the Empire State to Japan
        And Oliver North married William Secord
        and gave birth to a little Teheran
        And the Ayatollah bought a nuclear warship
        if he dies he wants to go out in style
        And there's nothing to eat that don't carry the stink
        of some human waste dumped in the Nile

        We one thing is certainly true
        no one here knows what to do
        And I'm Sick of You
        I'm Sick of You

        The radio said there were 400 dead
        in some small town in Arkansas
        Some whacked out trucker drove into a nuclear reactor
        and killed everybody he saw
        Now he's on Morton Downey and he's glowing and shining
        doctors say this is a medical advance
        They say the bad makes the good and there's something to be learned
        in every human experience

        Well I know one thing that really is true
        this here's a zoo and the keeper ain't you
        And I'm sick of it
        I'm Sick of You

        They ordained the Trumps and then he got the mumps
        and died being treated at Mt. Sinal
        And my best friend Bill died from a poison pill
        some wired doctor prescribed for stress
        My arms and legs are shrunk the food all has lumps
        they discovered some animal no one's ever seen
        It was an inside trader eating a rubber tire
        after running over Rudy Giuliani

        They say the President's dead but no one can find his head
        it's been missing now for weeks
        But no one noticed it he had seemed so fit
        and I'm Sick of it

        I'm Sick of You
        I'm so Sick of You, bye, bye, bye

        Bye, bye, bye
