The Velvet Underground - Venus in Furs

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorned, imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there

[Bridge]
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

[Verse 3]
Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

[Verse 4]
Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now bleed for me

The classic, musical adaption of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's homage to feminine dominance. Published in 1870, Venus In Furs created such a sensation that it was his name that became the root behind "Masochism." Velvet Underground created this musical tribute to the dark side of sexuality in what has become an underground classic within the S/m scene.
