"Sweet Bonnie Brown" as written by and Lou Reed....
Sweet bonnie brown, looking like a baby
Coming down all over me
She looked real good, like a real nice lady
Coming down all over me

Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Oh, roll me over, like I'm coming home

Well, she looked really like another ...
Coming down all over me
She looked real good, like a real low lady
Coming down all over me, yeah

Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
She looked real good, like I know she would

I've been loving mary-ann so long
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
And every time I see her, you know, I go too long
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Well, I ain't lying, baby, I ain't crying
I've been this way for a long, long time, wow, wow ...

Sweet bonnie brown, looking like a baby
Coming down all over me
She looked real good, just like a real low lady
Coming down all over me

Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
Sweet bonnie brown (sweet bonnie brown)
She looked real good, like I know she would

Oh, wow, I'm up on a pony, spending all my money
Don't you come on after me
Oh, she looked real good, just like a real low lady
Coming down all over me, oh

Sweet bonnie brown
Oh, sweet bonnie brown
Oh, sweet bonnie brown
She looked real good, like I know she would, oh, oh

Oh, I've been loving mary-lou, but so long
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Everytime I know her I ....
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Well I like baby, I ain't crying
I've been this way for a long, long, long this time, oh
Wow, wow, oh, baby ...

    General CommentYeah and a decent crack at the lyrics which are hard to make out. Lou was probably making it up as he went along and wouldn't know what he was singing if he heard it today. A great song almost rockabilly and Lou is clearly having a great time playing some classic rock guitar in this and Its Just Too Much. Fantastic album as well.
