"It's All Right" as written by and John Cale Lou Reed....
I don’t care about your ways
Of love and life and walkin’
I don’t care about your days
Of carin’ and not talkin’

But it’s your right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live

You won’t call
It doesn’t matter if your sun shines in the evening
Don’t wait
The moon will wait to come out in the night and talkin’

I don’t care about your present pay
And your night life you keep burning
I don’t care about what your old man says
All the ways you have of learnin’

But it’s your right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live

You don’t write
It doesn’t matter what they all say, gonna mess around
It’s ok
It doesn’t matter if your off or fine gonna learn

I don’t care about your ways
Of love and life and walkin’
I don’t care about your days
Of carin’ and not talkin’

But it’s your right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live
It’s all right
The way that you live
It’s all right
...

    General CommentSometimes I think this song is pure acceptance, and sometimes it seems like the speaker doesn't think it's all right the way the person lives but there's nothing he can do about it. I love how raw this song is. Is that the right word, raw?
