Verse 1:

D D G G
Holly came from Miami, FLA
D D G G
Hitchhiked her way across the USA
D D A A
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
E E A A
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says

D D G G
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
D D G G
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

Verse 2:

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
Said hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls go
D D G G [L.R. 2X; colored girls 2X]
Do do-do do-do do-do-do-do Do do-do do-do do-do-do-do
Dooo...

Verse 3:

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City is the place where
They say

Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
Said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

Verse 4:

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Looking for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo, you should have seen him 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
All right... huh

Verse 5:

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 fast
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
D D G G [L.R. 2X; colored girls 4X]
Do do-do do-do do-do-do-do Do do-do do-do do-do-do-do
Dooo...

Coda:
