The Perfect Day

Lou Reed, song writer and singer, tells of a day that happened to him. Listen as he describes a CONCEIVABLE moment in time.

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 spend it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Notice how Lou Reed describes a perfect day that is effortless and enjoyable. He places an emphasis on spending time with someone he enjoys to be with. Lou also shows that a moment does not have to be fancy or complicated to be perfect.
