"Femme Fatale" as written by and Lou Reed....
Here she comes you better watch your step
She's going to play you for a fool, it's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She'll build you up to just put you down
What a clown

'Cause everybody knows
The things she does to please
She's just a little tease
See the way she walks, hear the way she talks

You're written in her book
You're number thirty-seven have a look
She's going to play you for a fool, it's true
Little boy on the street
Before you start you're already beat
She's going to smile to make you frown
What a clown

'Cause everybody knows (she's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (she's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (she's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks, hear the way she talks

'Cause everybody knows (she's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (she's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (she's a femme fatale)
She's a femme fatale
She's a femme fatale
She's a femme fatale

    General CommentR.E.M. didn't write this song. It's a cover of a Velvet Underground song. (Not that that's got much to do with the song's meaning. Just felt like clearing that up for anyone who wanted to know that!)
