"Coney Island Steeplechase" as written by and John Cale Lou Reed....
Would you like to go on the Coney Island Steeple
Go and have a good time
We'll take the subway right down to King's Highway
Gonna have a good time
If it's all right it would be so nice
If you come and go with me
The roller-coaster you and me
Just try
Would you like to go on the Coney Island Steeple
Go and have a good time
Like a sister and brother we'll cling to each other
When they find out their parents aren't there
Oh it'd be so nice
Like choco with ice
Oh if you come and go with me
How nice it would be
Don't be so shy
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Maybe not Friday
Saturday, Sunday
Coney Island, Coney Island, Coney Island

    General Commentduring the "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Maybe not Friday ..." part of the song.. is it just me or does the influence of the VU on the Strokes really shine, particularly Julian Casablancas singing. The line "Maybe not Friday.." sounds exactly like his style or the style could obviously could have possibly influenced him. I don't know. Maybe it's all just coincidence, but it sounds cool all the same. it's my favorite part of the song.

    General Commentthat's total bullshit. the strokes admit to being fans, but not big fans. they have completely different styles. i hate when people go off on shit like that just because a bunch of fucking reporters say that the strokes sound like the velvet underground. watch the documentary in transit and you'll see casablancas himself make fun of it
