Mor la musa de Lou Reed

Adéu a Holly Woodlawn, la protagonista de la cançó «Walk on the Wild Side»

Arxivat a: El piano


Holly Woodlawn, la transsexual que protagonitza la cançó «Walk on the Wild Side», ha mort als 69 anys. Havia nascut a Puerto Rico amb el nom de Haroldo Danhakl. Va fer de model, ballarina i estrella de cabaret. La recordem amb la peça de Lou Reed que la va immortalitzar. Caminarà sempre més per la banda salvatge de la vida.

Holly came from Miami F.L.A.

Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.

Plucked her eyebrows on the way

Shaved her legs and then he was a she

She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,

Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.


Candy came from out on the island,
In the backroom she was everybody’s darling,
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side
Said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls go,


Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo


Little Joe never once gave it away

Everybody had to pay and pay

A hustle here and a hustle there

New York City is the place where they said:

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side


Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets

Lookin’ for soul food and a place to eat

Went to the Apollo

You should have seen him go, go, go

They said, hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side

I said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, alright, huh


Jackie is just speeding away

Thought she was James Dean for a day

Then I guess she had to crash

Valium would have helped that bash

She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side

I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

And the colored girls say


Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
 

Holly Woodlawn (1946-2015).
