"One Of These Days" as written by and Lou Reed....
One of these days
And it's peculiar
Gonna look for me
And baby I'll be gone
One of these days
And it won't be long
You gonna call my name
And I'll be far gone
I'm gonna tell you something
That I ain't told no one before
That is if I can't stop dancing
And get my poor self off this bar room floor
One of these days
And in peculiar
Babe you're gonna call my name
You now that I'll be gone (bye bye baby)
I'm gonna tell you something
That I ain't told no one before
That is if I can't stop dancing
And get my poor self off this bar room floor
One of these days
And it won't be long
You gonna call my name
And I'll be gone
You gonna call my name
And I'll be gone
You gonna call my name
And I'll be gone

    General Commentone of my favorite velvet songs.
    I'd imagine this to be what Buddy Holly would sound like if that plane didn't go down

    General CommentIt's about impermanence and knowing relationships you have won't last forever so you don't want to take them for granted ("I'm gonna tell you something
    that I ain't told no one before") but you are too distracted by things that don't matter ("That is if I can't stop dancing and get my poor self off this bar room floor"). That's my take on it. The guitar at the end is great, especially on the live versions.
