European Son

Album: The Velvet Underground and Nico (1967)
  • You killed your European son
    You spit on those under twenty-one
    But now your blue car's gone
    You better say so long
    Hey hey, bye bye bye
    You made your wallpapers green
    You want to make love to the scene
    Your European son is gone
    You'd better say so long
    Your clown's bid you goodbye Writer/s: STERLING MORRISON, MAUREEN TUCKER, JOHN CALE, LOU REED
