“And me? I just don’t care at all.”
Lou Reed’s take on the class system. What we can take away, as far as I can tell in my day-drinking drunk state, is men of good fortune sometimes suck and men of poor beginnings sometimes suck too. And Lou claims he just doesn’t care at all, which is a lie, because he wouldn’t write songs about it if he didn’t. Lou Reed was a man of poor beginnings who became a man of moderately good fortune, so he would know what both sides of the equation look like. He comes to the unsurprising conclusion that basically it’s shitty any way you slice it.
