                                "Vicious"
                                (Lou Reed)

[Inspired by Andy Warhol, who told Lou Reed "I think you should write a
 song called 'Vicious'."]


[Intro] [main riff, 2X]

        D     C  G     C *
        
                        * bass plays A under second C chord throughout

[Verse 1]

        D       C  G
        Vicious
             C             D      C  G
        You hit me with a flower
            C            D    C  G
        You do it every hour
                   C         D      C  G  C
        Ohh, baby you're so vicious


[Verse 2]

        Vicious
        You want me to hit you with a stick
        But all I've got's a guitar pick
                                D   C G  D
        Huh... baby you're so vicious


[Bridge 1]

        A
        When I watch you come
        G               D   C G  D
        I just want to run   far away
        A
        You're not the kind of person
        G                      D   C    D
        Around whom I want to stay

        Em    F#m              G
        When I see you comin' down the street
           Em           F#m         G
        I step on your hands and I mangle your feet
               Em              F#m            G     A
        You're not the kind of person that I wanna meet
                             D
        Oh, baby, you're so vicious

        [Guitar solo over main riff]

        (You're just so vicious)


[Verse 1]

        D       C  G
        Vicious
             C             D      C  G
        You hit me with a flower
            C            D    C  G
        You do it every hour
                   C         D      C  G  C
        Ohh, baby you're so vicious


[Verse 3]

        Vicious
        Hey, why don't you swallow razor blades
        You must think I'm some kinda gay blade
                             D   C G  D
        But baby, you're so vicious


[Chorus 2]

        When I watch you comin'
        I just have to run
        You're not good and you certainly aren't very much fun
        When I see you walkin' down the street
        I step on your hand and I mangle your feet
        You're not the kind of person that I even wanna meet
        'Cause you're so vicious


[Coda] [repeat main riff to fade]:

        Vicious
        Vicious...

Excellent. The only thing is that if you play along you need to go back through the C to the D on the main riff cycle. Cheers
