"My idea of Christianity is no safety net, a scathing attack on bourgeois values, and a risk to respectability." — Bono

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark
We'll go home
Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie, too
And then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It's such fun

Just a perfect day
You make me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
Reap, reap, reap what you sow
Oh, what a perfect day

(This Lou Reed song is performed by Reed, Bono, and many other artists on the Perfect Day single)
