Holly came from Miami, Florida
Hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She said, "Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side"
She said, "Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side"

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was given head
She said, "Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side"
She said, "Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side"
And everybody said, "Doo doo doo . . ."

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City is the place where
They said, "Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side"
They said, "Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side"

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Looking for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should've seen him go go-go
They said, "Hey, sugar, take a walk on the wild side"
They said, "Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side"

Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would've helped that bash
She said, "Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side"
She said, "Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side"
And everybody said, "Doo doo doo . . ."
