Music/Lyrics: Lou Reed

Original Album: Loaded (1970)

Vocals: Trey (lead), Fish, Mike, Page (backing)

Debut: 1998-10-31

Historian: Mark Toscano


Lou Reed's eccentric gutter-ballad to a used-up piece of Hollywood offal is simultaneously beautiful and vulgar, representing the best of both worlds of The Velvet Underground. The song is often considered one of the diamonds in the rough terrain of Loaded. Though Doug Yule’s portion of the lyrics are blasted for being too blandly and flatly delivered (even, albeit politely, by Reed himself), the song is one of the Velvets’ last few masterpieces. Phish covered this on 10/31/98 during its Loaded set, playing it pretty straight and true to the original album version, despite an extended ending featuring an extremely fiery (if repetitive) Trey solo.

Can I have your autograph
He said to the fat blonde actress
You know I've seen every movie you've been in
From Paths of Pain to Jewels of Glory
And when you kissed Robert Mitchum
Gee but I thought you'd never catch him

Over the hill right now
And you're looking for love
You're over the hill right now
And you're looking for love

I'll come running to you honey when you want me
I'll come running to you honey when you want me

Can I have your autograph
He said to the fat blonde actress
You know I know everything you've done
Anyway I hate divorces
To the left is a marble shower
It was fun even for an hour, but...

Your're over the hill right now
And you're looking for love
You're over the hill right now
And you're looking for love

I'll come running to you honey when you want me
I'll come running to you honey when you want me

Something's got a hold on me
And I don't know what
Oh! Something's got a hold on me
And I don't know what

It's the beginning of a new age
It's the beginning of a new age

It's a new age!
