"Lisa Says" as written by and Lou Reed....
Lisa says that it's all right
When she meets me at midnight
Lisa says that she has her fun
And she'll do it with just about anyone

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says

Lisa says that she's on the run
Looking for a special one
Lisa says that every time she makes it straight
She knows her heart will break

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says

Looking for a party, some action
Gone to make it feel okay
But what do you mind, where the time must come on down
Look at it all

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Oh, Lisa says
Lisa says, oh
Lisa says
Lisa says

    General CommentAs mentioned above, the lyrics to the live version are much better. It is actually a later version of the song, with the lyrics fleshed out quite a bit more. A good song about a complex relationship between a free-spirited girl trying to settle down with a guy who is in the opposite situation. The lyrics here, for the studio version, are a little thin and comparing it to the later version, it's obvious the song was a little underdeveloped at this point. Still, it's pretty freakin' classic for 1969.

    General Commenti'm almost sure that it says "lisa says that everytime she makes it straight she knows her heart will break".
