"the girls" by Neil Gaiman


New Age

(Reed, 1969)

Lyrics

Waiting for the phone to ring
Diamond necklace on my shoulder
Waiting for the phone to ring
Lipstick on my neck and shoulder
It seems to be my fancy to make it with
Frank and Nancy, well

Chorus:
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you, oh baby if you want me
I'll come running to you now, baby if you want me

Looking at my hands today
Look to me that they're made of ivory
I had a funny call today
Someone died and someone married
you know that it's my fancy to make it with
Frank and Nancy, well

Chorus:
Over the bridge they go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you now, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you now, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you, baby if you want me

And something's got a hold on me
It's the beginning of a new age
oh, oh, oh, well it's
It's the beginning of a new age
Can you say it, too, for yourself
Yes, it's the beginning of a new age
oh you little sick little fucks, yes

It's the beginning of a new age

from Velvet Underground Live 1969 [listen]






Tori Quotes

"In 'New Age,' the character is really engulfed in this passion. And I think she's really worried about what the new age is going to be, and she's determined not to sit on the sidelines anymore as it develops. There's this igniting of passion on the whole record. I wanted to have this balmy, undulating rhythm going on... sort of stripped. And that's where the passion was coming from." [Ice - September 2001]

"She's a writer, an observer. She's doing research; she's documenting like an Encyclopedia Britannica of life and experience. Her big line is, 'Well, I'm doing Research.'" [AP - October 2001]
