You know, man when I was a young man in high school you believe it or not / I wanted to play football for the coach / and all those older guys they said he was mean and cruel/ but you know I wanted to play football for the coach

You know, man
when I was a young man in high school
you believe it or not
I wanted to play football for the coach
and all those older guys
they said he was mean and cruel
but you know I
wanted to play football for the coach
they said I was too little
too light weight to play linebacker
so I say I’m playing right-end
wanted to play football for the coach

From “Coney Island Baby”
Written by Lou Reed
