Venus In Furs Lyrics - Velvet Underground

Review The Song (2)



(Reed)
Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
sponsored links
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

I always wondered ... | Reviewer: Lance S | 10/1/09

if the "made of tears" could possibly be read "maid of tears". Both would fit. This was my absolute favorite song when I was 12. Of course, I had no idea what it was about, and (thankfully) the tape I had was poor enough quality that my parents couldn't really hear the lyrics either. At the time I thought the use of the word "mistress" was pretty racy! Definitely the best B&D song ever (and one of the best by a truly great band).



you must see the movie | Reviewer: ina | 8/2/07
