"Lisa Says" as written by and Lou Reed....
Lisa says that it's all right
When she meets me at midnight
Lisa says that she has her fun
And she'll do it with just about anyone

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says

Lisa says that she's on the run
Looking for a special one
Lisa says that every time she makes it straight
She knows her heart will break

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says

Looking for a party, some action
Gone to make it feel okay
But what do you mind, where the time must come on down
Look at it all

Lisa says
Lisa says
Lisa says
Oh, Lisa says
Lisa says, oh
Lisa says
Lisa says

    General CommentFirst of all the lyrics are incorrect and are as follows, I'm not sure if this is another version or what (if so I'd really like to hear) but the version I'm familiar with goes as follows:

    Lisa says, on a night like this
    It'd be so nice, if you gave me a great big kiss
    And Lisa says, honey, for just one little smile
    Ill sing and play for you for the longest while

    Lisa says
    Lisa says
    Lisa says, oh, no
    Lisa says

    Lisa says, honey, you must think -
    - Im some kind of california fool
    The way you treat me just like some kind of tool
    Lisa says, hey baby, if you stick your tongue in my ear
    Then the scene around here will become very clear

    Lisa says, oh no
    Lisa says, hey, dont you be a little baby
    Lisa says, oh, no
    Lisa says

    Hey, if you're looking for a good time Charlie
    Well, that's not really what I am
    You know, some good time charlie
    Always out, having his fun

    But if youre looking for some good, good lovin
    Then sit yourself right over here
    You know that those good, those good times
    They just seem to pass me by, just like pie in the sky

    And lisa says, on a night like this
    It'd be so nice if you gave me a great big kiss
    And lisa says, hey baby, for just one little smile
    I'll sing and play for you for the longest while
    Let me hear you now

    Lisa says, oh, no, no
    Lisa says, hey, dont you be a little baby
    Lisa says, oh, no
    Lisa says

    Why am I so shy
    Why am I so shy, gee, you know those
    Good good times, they just seem to pass me by
    Why am I so shy

    First time I saw you I was talking to myself
    I said, hey, you got such pretty, pretty eyes
    (that pretty eyes)

    Now that youre next to me I just get so upset
    And lisa, will you tell me, why am I so shy

    Why am I so shy
    Why am I so shy, well, you know that those
    Good, good times, they just seem to pass me by
    Why am I so shy

    And lisa says, on a night like this
    Itd be so nice if you gave me a great big kiss
    And lisa says, honey, for just one little smile
    Ill sing and play for you for the longest while

    Lisa says, oh, no, now
    Lisa says, hey dont you be a little baby
    Lisa says, oh, no

    General CommentAnd I think the song is pretty straight forward in its meaning.

    General CommentThis version appears as a Velvet Underground song, but these lyrics are correct, or at least, are for that version.

    General CommentThe version acepod8 posted is the live VU version, and also by far my favourite.
