Sunday Song Lyric

Czechs celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution with a star-studded concert in Prague.  Among the highlights, according to news reports, was Lou Reed and Renee Fleming singing Reed’s “Perfect Day.” I’m not sure what the song has to do with the reason for the celebration (most believe it’s about heroin), but it’s a classic track from Reed’s classic album, Transformer.  Here’s a taste of the lyrics:

Just a perfect day,
Problems all left alone,
Weekenders on our own.
It’s such fun.
Just a perfect day,
You made me forget myself.
I thought I was someone else,
Someone good.

Here are the full lyrics and another Reed performance.
