walk on the wild side

Ive    just  been taking  a  look  at   lou  reeds  walk  on the  wild  side  ,The  last  verse  goes " Then I guess  she  had to  crash  ,Valium would  have  helped  that   bash -she  said "
Its  this  line   that seems  wrong   ,should  it  not  be   "Valium   would  have helped  that vache" vache  being cow  in  french , this  would  perhaps  make  more  sense  with  Lou  refering  to  the  a fore mentioned  Jackie  as  a  cow in french . Or   am I  looking  to  deep  into  the  meaning  of  this  song .

Re: walk on the wild side

Thanks  guys  ,Jets  the  link  explains  much  about  the  characters  and  that  Jackie  was  a  man ,however   if  you  listen to  this version of it  from a spanish  tv program it  sounds  quite  clear ( to  me at  any  rate )  he  sings  vache http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n87Nx-Rk-pU .Any  way its   a  great  song
