    (Lyrics / Music--Lou Reed) Published by MGM Music

    ("Get your fingers in.")

    Lady Godiva, dressed so demurely
    Pats the head of another curly-haired boy
    A spurting pink toy
    Sick with silence, she weeps sincerely
    Saying words that have all so clearly been said ("You will do--")
    So long ago ("--what I tell you.")
    Here today now and dipped in the water
    Making love to every poor daughter's son
    Isn't it fun?
    "Doctor is coming," the nurse thinks SWEETLY
    Turning on the machines that NEATLY PUMPS AIR
    ("Make the incision at the base of the skull.")
    The body lies bare

    ("I want you to think of me as someone you can come
    to with your problems.")

    Shaved and hairless, what once was SCREAMING
    Now lies silent and almost sleeping
    The brain must have got away
    Strapped securely to the white table
    Beneath the gauze the body will wither and writhe
    Underneath the white light
    Doctor arrives with knife and baggage
    Sees the growth as just so much cabbage ("Take the bone saw--")
    That must now be cut away ("--and cut around the perimeter.")
    Now comes the moment of great, great decision
    Doctor is making the first incision
    One goes here and one goes there
    "Ether tubes are leaking", says someone who's sloppy
    Patient, it seems, is not so well sleeping
    The screams echo up the hall
    Don't panic, someone give him pentathol instantly
    Doctor removes the blade cagily so from the brain
    By my count of ten--the head won't move
    ("And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen--the human brain.")

    Haaaaa!! Here we go, everybody!!
    All you fucking bastards!! Yeah!! Haha!!
    Oh, oh, Lady Godiva
    My queen of the killing floor
    Oh, oh, Lady Godiva
    [...?] in a butcher store
    La la la la la...
