This is a song about five people who Lou Reed knew in the 1960s: Holly, Candy, Little Joe, Sugar Plum Fairy and Jackie. He met these interesting people in Andy Warhol’s studio in New York City. The song describes the crazy lives of these five characters and their adventurous attitude: don’t be boring, explore the wild side of life.
