No Money Down Lyrics

by Lou Reed

I know you're disappointed
In the way I handled things
You're thinking I misread the times
And acted cowardly

And since what I do affects us both
And you feel that I let you down

You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
Lovers trust, no money down
You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
It's lovers trust, no money down

Hey, lover
Hey, lover
Lover

They say there's someone for everyone
And for everyone a someone
And some tattoo roses across their chests
With a heart that says 'Rollo'

And some work without a public relations man
And do their best work, baby, out of sight

You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
It's lovers trust, no money down
You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
Lovers trust, no money down

Hey, lover
Hey, lover
Lover

Now I have known a hero or two
And they all learn to swim through mud
And they all got boots caked with dirty soles
That they get from squashing bugs

So when push comes to shove get the Harley revved up
The moon can eclipse even the sun

You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
Lovers trust, no money down
You're paying a price when there is no price to pay
It's lovers trust, no money down

Lovers trust, no money down
(Hey, lover)
Yes, lovers trust, no money down
(Hey, lover)

Lovers trust, no money down
(Hey, lover)
Lovers trust, no money down
(Hey, lover)

Hey, hey, lover
Hey, hey, lover
