Walk on the Wild Side Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Holly came from Miami F.L.A
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A
Verse 2
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her leg and then he was a she
Verse 3
She says, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
Said, 'Hey honey, take a walk on the wild side '
Verse 4
Candy came from out on the island
In the back room she was everybody's darling
Verse 5
But she never lost her head
Even when she was given head
Verse 6
She says, 'Hey babe, 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
Verse 7
Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
Verse 8
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York city is the place where
Verse 9
They said, 'Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I Said, 'Hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side
Verse 10
Sugar plum fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin' for soul food and a place to eat
Verse 11
Went to the Apollo
You should have seen him go go go
Verse 12
They said, 'Hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
I said, 'Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
All right, huh
Verse 13
Jackie is just speedin' away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Verse 14
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that dash
Verse 15
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
