Read in the paper 'bout a man killed with a sword
And that made my think of my friend George
People said the man was five foot six
Sounds like George with his killing stick

    As far as post VU, Transformer is the best album Lou Reed did solo. Berlin is pretty great too. This song is great.

    I know this may sound crazy, but 'My Friend George' is my favorite Lou Reed song. It's fun, catchy, and well-arranged. Don't get me wrong, I love plenty of Velvet Underground stuff, but this song is way better than 'Walk on The Wild Side' as far as post-VU material goes. Severely underrated.
