I Heard Her Call My Name Lyrics

by Velvet Underground

Ever since I was on cripple Monday
Got my eyeballs on my knees
I worked for hours with mad Mary William
She said she never understood a word from me
Because I know that she cares about me
I heard her call my name

I know that she's long, dead and gone
And still it ain't the same
When I wake up in the morning, mama
I heard her call my name
I know that she's long dead and gone
But it ain't the same

Ever since I was on cripple Monday
Got my eyeballs on my knees and they were walking
Rough hours later and you
Never said a word beneath the calm
I know that she cares about me
Heard her call my name

And I know that she's long, dead and gone
But it still it ain't the same
When I wake up in the morning
I heard her call my name
I know that she's long dead and gone
I heard her call my name, my mind split open
