The Kids

Lou Reed

 GDGD
 Because they said she was not a good mother

Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
They've taken her children away

 GDGD
 Because she was making it with sisters and brothers

 GDGD
And everyone else, all of the others

 GD
Like cheap officers who would

 GDAA6As4A
                                         ^^^^(these variations this verse only)
Stand there and flirt in front of me

Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
 GDGD
 AiGvii D Ds4 D
 GDGDGDGDGDGDA
They've taken her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They've taken her children away
Because of the things that they said she had done
The black air-force sergeant was not the first one and
All of the drugs she took

 GDAA9A
 Every one, every one       

(Chorus)

A A9hA A9hA
And I am the water boy

 DGD
The real game's not over here      

G D A A* A
But my heart is overflowing, anyw - a - y

A A9hA A9hA
I'm just the tired man

 DGD
No words to say,        But

G A A9hA
Since she lost her daughter It's her

G A A9hA
Eyes that fill with water And

 GA
 I am much happier this

Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
Way

 AiGvii D Ds4 D
 D
They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because number one was the girlfriend from Paris
The things that they did they didn't have to ask us
And then the Welshmen from India, we came here to stay

They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because of the things she did in the streets
In the alleys and bars no she couldn't be beat
That miserable rotten slut couldn't turn anyone away

then suddenly, in ringing acoustic guitar

Av Giii D A
(Chorus)
