Femme Fatale

Andy asked Lou Reed to write a song about me and he wrote Femme Fatale. The Velvet Underground and Nico recorded it at Scepter Studios in New York City in April 1966. The single was released in December 1966 and the album in March 1967.

The Velvet Underground & Nico, 1967

Here she comes
You better watch your step
She’s going to break your heart in two
It’s true

It’s not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down
What a clown

‘Cause everybody knows
The thing she does to please
She’s just a little tease
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

Lou Reed
