album _Lou Reed_
(Lou Reed, 1972)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        In Berlin, by the wall
        you were five foot ten inches tall
        It was very nice
        candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

        We were in a small cafe
        you could hear the guitars play
        It was very nice
        it was paradise

        You're right and I'm wrong
        hey babe, I'm gonna miss you now that you're gone
        One sweet day

        Oh, you're right and I'm wrong
        you know I'm gonna miss you now that you're gone
        One sweet day
        One sweet day

        In a small, small cafe
        we could hear the guitars play
        It was very nice
        candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

        Don't forget, hire a vet
        he hasn't had that much fun yet
        It was very nice
        hey honey, it was paradise

        You're right and I'm wrong
        oh babe, I'm gonna miss you now that you're gone
        One sweet day
        You're right, oh, and I'm wrong
        you know I'm gonna miss you now that you're gone
        One sweet day
        One sweet day

        One sweet day, one sweet day
        oh, one sweet day
        One sweet day, baby baby, one sweet day
        one sweet day, one sweet day

===========================================


        In Berlin by the wall
        you were five foot ten inches tall
        It was very nice
        candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

        We were in a small cafe
        you could hear the guitars play
        It was very nice
        oh honey, it was paradise

Happy birthday dear ????
Happy birthday to you

In Berlin by the wall
You were five foot ten inches tall

Candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

We were in a small cafe
You could hear the guitars paly
It was very nice
Oh, honey it was paradise

Not that I really think it matters,
but they're off course singing "Happy birthday dear Caroline"
in Berlin from the album Berlin.

it took a while,
but it is a starting point for the lyrics of this album.

"Berlin"


In Berlin, by the wall
You were five foot ten inches tall
And it was really nice
Candlelight and Dubonnet on ice

We were in a small cafe
Baby baby baby you could hear all the guitars play
It was really nice
Hey it was paradise

Hey baby you're right and I'm wrong
I'm gonna miss you now
Baby one sweet day

Oh, you are right and I know I was wrong
And I know I'm gonna miss you
One sweet day
One sweet day

We was baby in a small cafe
We could hear the guitars play
Baby baby it was very nice
Hey waiter Dubonnet on ice

Hey now don't forget you gonna marry the vet
He hadn't any fun yet
It was very nice
Don't you know it was paradise

Whoa yeah
You're right and I know I was wrong
I'm gonna miss you now I miss you anyhow
One sweet day

Hey you're right, and baby baby, and I'm wrong
I'm gonna miss you now I miss you anyhow
One sweet day
One sweet day

One sweet day, one sweet day

In the transciptions are a few (little) gaps left,
and there may be a few (minor) mistakes in them.

"Berlin"
(_Take No Prisoners_)


In Berlin, by the wall
you were five foot ten inches tall
Hey, it was really nice
a little cheap Dubonnet on ice

We was in a small cafe
baby, baby, baby, you can hear
you can hear all those musicians play
It was really nice
hey, it was paradise

Hey baby, you was right, oh, and I know
baby, I was wrong, I know I'm gonna miss you now
baby, one sweet day

Oh yeah, baby, you was right
and, oh yeah, I know that I was wrong
and I know I'm gonna miss you now
And I know I'm gonna miss you anyhow
Oh, one sweet day
One sweet day

We was in, baby, baby, baby, small cafe
you can hear those musicians play
Oh, baby, it was really nice
hey, waiter, I had a little cheap Dubonnet on ice

Hey now, don't you forget you go ahead, you marry that bit
baby, baby, baby, he ain't had any fun yet
It was really nice
I'd like to know, it was paradise

Oh, yeah, hey baby, you was right, yeah, yeah,
I know that I was wrong
I know I'm gonna miss you now
one sweet day
Hey baby, I said you was right,
baby, baby, baby, don't you know,
don't you know
Yeah, I know I'm gonna miss you now
I'm gonna miss you anyhow
One sweet day, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
One sweet day,
In Berlin

Don't you fly to Berlin
