"New Sensations"
======================
album _New Sensations_
(Lou Reed, 1984)

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


        I don't like guilt be it stoned or stupid
        drunk and disorderly I ain't no cupid
        Two years ago today I was arrested on Christmas Eve

        I don't want pain, I want to walk not be carried
        I don't want to give it up, I want to stay married
        I ain't no dog tied to a parked car

        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, new sensations

        Talkin' 'bout some new sensations
        Talkin' 'bout some new sensations

        I want the principles of a timeless muse
        I want to eradicate my negative views
        And get rid of those people who are always on a down

        It's easy enough to tell what is wrong
        but that's not what I want to hear all night long
        Some people are like human Tuinals

        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, ooohhh, new sensations

        Talkin' 'bout some new sensations
        Talkin' a new sensations

        I took my GPZ out for a ride
        the engine felt good between my thighs
        The air felt cool, it was forty degrees outside

        I rode to Pennsylvania near the Delaware Gap
        sometimes I got lost and had to check the map
        I stopped at a roadside diner for a burger and a coke

        There were some country folk and some hunters inside
        somebody got themselves married and somebody died
        I went to the juke box and played a hillbilly song

        They was arguing about football as I waved and went outside
        and I headed for the mountains feeling warm inside
        I love that GPZ so much, you know that I could kiss her

        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, ooohhh, new sensations

        Talkin' 'bout your new sensations
        Talkin' new sensations

        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, new sensations
        Ooohhh, new sensations

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


        Ah
        I don't like guilt be it stoned or stupid
        drunk and disorderly I ain't no cupid
        Two years ago today I got arrested on big Christmas Eve

        I want to walk, baby, not be carried
        I don't want to give it up
        Ah, maybe I'm not meant to be married
        you know I'm no dog tied and put in a parked car

        Oh, new sensation, I wanna new sensation
        Ooohhh, ooohhh, now new sensation

        I said, I'm talkin' 'bout some new sensations
        I said, I'm talkin' about a new sensation

        I want the benefits of a timeless muse
        I want to get rid of my negative views
        And get rid of those people that are always such a down

        It's easy enough to say what's wrong
        that ain't what I want to hear all night long
        Some people are like human Tuinals

        Ooohhh, now baby, new sensation
        Oh, now new sensation

        I said, talkin' the new sensation
        I said, new sensation

        I took that GPZ out for a ride
        engine felt so good between my thighs
        The air was cool, forty degrees outside

        Rode to Pennsylvania by the Delaware Gap
        you know Michael, sometimes I got lost and check the map
        Went over a roadside diner
        for a scotch and a beer and a coke
        little boiler maker

        Some country folk, some hunters sitting inside
        somebody got married, somebody lay died
        Went to the juke box and I played, I played a hillbilly song

        They were arguing about soccer as I went outside
        heading for the mountains feeling warm inside
        You know I love my GPZ so much, I could kiss her

        Oh, a new sensation, I wanna new sensation
        Oh baby, a new sensation

        I said, I'm talkin' about a new sensation
        I wanna new sensation, new sensation
        Rip it open on the parkway, baby
        floor down a hundred and five, ah, I wanna new sensation

        I wanna go faster, baby
        Oh new-new, I wanna new sensation
        faster, baby, a hundred and five
        Crack it over, crack it motherfucker over
        crack it over, crack it motherfucker over
        I wanna hundred, a hundred and five, don't stop it now
        I said that new, new, new, new
        I said new sensation, I want a new sensation now
        ooohhh baby-baby-baby
        ah, na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-now
        A new, a new, a new, baby, please, new, new, new sensation

I think that there is a line in New Sensations that is incorrect.
"Some people are like human toulinols".
Toulinol is a barbitiuate type medication.
I'm not trying to be critical, just helpful!

thanks: Breixo Xiz (breixo@hotmail.com)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

in my opinion,
Lou says "some people are like human ruinals" in "New sensations".

I think I've found some minor inaccuracies
in 'New Sensations' (live version).

Namely:

line 8: I ain't no dog tied and put in a parked car
line 13: I want the benefits of a timeless muse
line 33: They were arguing about soccer as I went outside
line 34: Heading for the mountains feeling warm inside
line 40: Rip it open ot the parkway, baby

thanks: Shawn Pavey (shawn.pavey@cotelligent.com)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

There seems to be a lot of confusion over the line,
"Some People are like human toulinols". That is correct.
What Lou meant is that some people, due to their negative attitudes,
can affect someone like a toulinol in that they suck positive energy.
I know we all know people like this.

On your lyrics for new sensations,
the verse where you say little boy america,
I believe he is saying a little boiler maker,
which is a whisky and a beer (not a scotch)


---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------
thanks: Stephen Botha (gbotha@worldonline.co.za)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

One tiny correction for "New Sensations"
- I'm pretty sure that the line
"human toulinols" should be "human Tuinals."
