"Hangin' 'Round"
===================
album _Transformer_
(Lou Reed, 1972)

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


        Harry was a rich young man
        who would become a priest
        He dug up his dear father
        who was recently deceased

        He did it with tarot cards
        and a mystically attuned mind
        And shortly there
        and after he did find

        Jeanie was a spoiled young brat
        she thought she knew it all
        She smoked mentholated cigarettes
        and she had sex in the hall

        But she was not my kind
        or even of my sign
        The kind of animal
        that I would be about

        Wow-wow-wow, you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        Oh-wow-wow-wow, you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        alright now
        ah-huh-huh

        Kathy was a bit surreal
        she painted all her toes
        And on her face she wore dentures
        clamped tightly to her nose

        And when she finally spoke
        her twang her glasses broke
        And no one else could smoke
        while she was in the room

        Hark, the herald angels sang
        and reached out for a phone
        And plucking it with a knife in hand
        dialed long distance home

        But it was all too much
        sprinkling angel dust
        To AT and T
        who didn't wish you well

        Oh, but you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        Ho-ho-ho-ho, you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago

        Hangin' round
        hangin' round, that's all you're doing baby
        Hangin' round
        hangin' round, ooohhh
        Hangin' round
        hangin' round
        Hangin' round
        hangin' round
        ...

"Hangin' 'Round"
(acoustic demo)
======================
album _Transformer_
reissue CD bonus track
(Lou Reed, 2002)
======================


        Harry was a rich young man
        who would become a priest
        He studied with his father
        who was recently deceased

        He did it with tarot cards
        and a mystically attuned mind
        And shortly there
        and after he did find

        Jeanie was a spoiled young brat
        she thought she knew it all
        She smoked mentholated cigarettes
        and had sex in the hall

        But she was not my sign
        or any of the kind
        The ............
        that I would be about

        But you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        Oh, you're still hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still ....... things that I gave up years ago

        Raymond was a stranger
        who had come from parts unknown
        He had no hair upon his head
        so he did not use a comb

        But ............
        and everyday did, babe
        And when at last he found himself
        ........... clean the ......

        Kathy was a bit surreal
        she painted all her toes
        On her face she wore dentures
        clamped tightly to her nose

        And when she finally spoke
        her twang her glasses broke
        And no one else could smoke
        while she was in the room

        But you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not very glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        Oh-wow-wow-wow, you're still hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago

        Hark, the herald angels sang
        and reached out for a phone
        And plucking it with ivory in hand
        dialed long distance home

        But it was all too much
        sprinkling angel dust
        To A and T
        who didn't wish you well not at all

        But-but-but you keep hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        Ho-wow-wow-wow-wow, you're still hangin' round me
        and I'm not so glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        You're still hangin' round me
        and I'm not, no-no, glad you found me
        You're still doing things that I gave up years ago
        no-no-no-no
