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
 GDGD
 AiGvii D Ds4 D
 GDGDGDGDGDAD
                          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
Aix Gvii D Ds4 D

 AiGvii D Ds4 D
 GDGDGDGDGDGD
                         Aix Gvii D Ds4 D
 GDGD
 AiGvii D Ds4 D
G D G D G D G D G D G D ad infinitum while kids scream
then suddenly, in ringing acoustic guita
Av Giii D A
(Chorus)
Aix Gvii D Ds4 D9 D G D G D G D A D
^^^^^^^^^^ quickly
