Lou Reed

Back Home Doing 'Fine'

After Medical Emergency

Lou Reed
's fresh liver landed him in the ER Sunday ... but we're told he's back home and doing fine.

The 71-year-old rock legend was rushed to the hospital after he became sick to his stomach and repeatedly threw up ... that's what our sources are telling us.

EMTs were called and declared a medical emergency, because Reed had a liver transplant 2 months ago and they feared rejection -- who doesn't.

Turns out it was only a case of dehydration.  Lou is out of the hospital ... fit and fine.

I love Lou Reed. He is a great musical artist and puts on a great concert. You leave his shows numb. Good luck Lou. Hope you live another twenty years or more.

I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm goin' to try for the kingdom if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
Then I tell you things aren't quite the same


♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♪♫ ♪


When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know


♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♪♫ ♪


I have made very big decision
I'm goin' to try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death

You can't help me not you guys
All you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sailed the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
I put on a sailor's suit and cap


♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫ ♫ ♪♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♪♫ ♪


Away from the big city
Where a man cannot be free
Of all the evils in this town
And of himself and those around
Oh, and I guess I just don't know
Oh, and I guess I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off than dead

When the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jims in this town
And everybody putting everybody else down
And all of the politicians makin' crazy sounds
All the dead bodies piled up in mounds, yeah

Wow, that heroin is in my blood
And the blood is in my head
Yeah, thank God that I'm good as dead
Ooohhh, thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know
