I Can't Stand It

length: 2:38
composer: Lou Reed
lyricist: Lou Reed

It's hard being a man
Living in a garbage pail
My landlady called me up, oh
She tried to hit me with a mop

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more, oh
I can't stand it any more more

But if baby would just come back, it'd be all right
Yeah, if baby would just come back, it would be all right
Come on, baby

I live with thirteen dead cats
A purple dog that wears spats
They're all living out in the hall
And I can't stand it any more

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more

But if baby would just come back, it'd be all right
Oh, if baby would just come back, it would be all right
Be all right, now

Come on, baby

I'm tired of living all alone, yeah
Nobody ever calls me on the phone
But when things are getting better
I just play my music louder

I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it any more more
I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't stand it, I can't stand it ...

Going Down

length: 2:57
composer: Lou Reed
When you're in a dream,
And you think you've got your problems all nailed down.
Pieces of the scheme
Seem to rattle up and to rattle down.

And when you start to fall,
And those footsteps, they start to fade.

Then you know you're going down.
Yeah, you're falling all around.
And you know you're going down
For the last time.

When you're in the air,
And you're thinking you'll drift off into the rest.
Your friends politely advise:
Hey, look, you're pushing too hard,
And perhaps you need a rest.

And when you start to fall,
And all those footsteps, they start to fade.

Then you know you're going down.
Yeah, you're crashing upside down.
And you know you're going down
For the last time.

Time's not what it seems.
It just seems longer, when you're lonely in this world.
Everything, it seems,
Would be brighter if your nights were spent with some girl

Yeah, you're falling all around.
Yeah, you're crashing upside down.
Oh, oh, and you know you're going down
For the last time.
