"Dirt" lyrics - LOU REED


It's been a long time since I've been spoken to you
Was it the right time?
Your current troubles and you know they'll get much worse
I hope you know how much I enjoyed them
You're a pig of a person, there's a justice in this world
Hey, how about this?
Your lack of conscience and your lack of morality
Well, more and more people know all about it

We sat around the other night, me and the guys,
trying to find the right word
That would best fit and describe you and people like you
That no principle has touched no principles baptized
How about that?
Who'd eat shit and say it taseted good
if there was some money in it for him
Hey, you remember that song by this guy from Texas
whose name was Bobby Fuller?
I'll sing it for you it went like this
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
