Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
He said, “Hey honey, take a walk on the wild side”

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybody’s darlin’
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
He said, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”

And the colored girls go
Doo do doo, doo do doo, doo do doo

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City’s the place where they said
“Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
I said, “Hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side”

Sugar plum fairy came and hit the streets
Lookin’ for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo, you should’ve seen ’em go go go
They said, “Hey sugar, take a walk on the wild side”
I said, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
Alright, huh

Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that bash
She said, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
I said, “Hey honey, take a walk on the wild side”

And the colored girls say
Doo do doo, doo do doo, doo do doo
