Blackout – David Bowie

Oh you, you walk on past
Your lips cut a smile
on your face
Your scalding face
To the cage, to the cage
She was a beauty in a cage

Too, too high a price
To drink rotting wine from your hands
Your fearful hands
Get me to a doctor’s I’ve been told
Someone’s back in town
the chips are down
I just cut and blackout
I’m under Japanese influence
And my honour’s at stake

The weather’s grim, ice on the cages
Me, I’m Robin Hood
and I puff on my cigarette
Panthers are steaming,
stalking, screaming

If you don’t stay tonight
I will take that plane tonight
I’ve nothing to lose,
nothing to gain
I’ll kiss you in the rain
Kiss you in the rain
Kiss you in the rain
In the rain
Get me to the doctor

Get me off the streets
(get some protection)
Get me on my feet
(get some direction)
Hot air gets me into a blackout
Oh, get me off the streets
Get some protection
Oh get me on my feet (wo-ooh!)

While the streets block off
Getting some skin exposure to the blackout
(get some protection)
Get me on my feet
(get some direction, wo-ooh!)
Oh get me on my feet
Get me off the streets
(get some protection)

Little Wonder – David Bowie

Stinky weather, Fat shaky hands
Dopey morning Doc,
Grumpy gnomes
Little wonder then, little wonder
You little wonder,
little wonder you
Big screen dolls,
tits and explosions
Sleepytime, Bashful but nude
Little wonder then, little wonder
You little wonder,
little wonder you
I’m getting it

Intergalactic, see me to be you
It’s all in the tablets,
Sneezy Bhutan
Little wonder then, little wonder
You little wonder,
little wonder you
Mars happy nation,
sit on my karma
Dame meditation, take me away
Little wonder then,
little wonder
You little wonder,
little wonder you

[CHORUS]
Sending me so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so so far away

Little wonder
You little wonder, you
Little wonder
You little wonder you

Something In the Air – David Bowie

Your coat and hat are gone
I really can’t look at your little empty shelf
A ragged teddy bear
It feels like we never had a chance
Don’t look me in the eye

We lay in each others arms
But the room is just an empty space
I guess we lived it out
Something in the air
We smiled too fast
then can’t think of a thing to say

Lived with the best times
Left with the worst
I’ve danced with you too long
Nothing left to say

Let’s take what we can
I know you hold your head up high
We’ve raced for the last time
A place of no return

And there’s something in the air
Something in my eye
I’ve danced with you too long
Something in the air
Something in my eye

Abracadoo – I lose you
We can’t avoid the clash
The big mistake
Now we’re gona pay and pay
The sentence of our lives
Can’t believe I’m asking you to go

We used what we could
To get the things we want
But we lost each other on the way
I guess you know I never wanted
anyone more than you

Lived all our best times
Left with the worst
I’ve danced with you to long
Say what you will

But there’s something in the air
Raced for the last time
Well I know you hold your head up high
There’s nothing we have to say
There’s nothing in my eyes
But there’s something in the air
Something in my eye
I’ve danced with you too long
There’s something I have to say
There’s something in the air
Something in my eye
I’ve danced with you too long

Bring Me the Disco King – David Bowie

You promised me the ending would be clear
You’d let me know when the time was now
Don’t let me know when you’re opening the door
Stab me in the dark, let me disappear

Memories that flutter like bats out of hell
Stab you from the city spires
Life wasn’t worth the balance
Or the crumpled paper it was written on

Don’t let me know we’re invisible
Don’t let me know we’re invisible

Hot cash days that you trailed around
Cold cold nights under chrome and glass
Led me down river of perfumed limbs
Sent me to the streets with the good time girls

Don’t let me know we’re invisible
Don’t let me know we’re invisible
We could dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire

Feed me no lies
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Bring me the disco king
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Dead or alive, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king

Spin-offs with those who slept like corpses
Damp morning rays in the stiff bad clubs
Killing time in the ’70s
Smelling of love through the moist winds
Don’t let me know when you’re opening the door
Close me in the dark, let me disappear
Soon there’ll be nothing left of me
Nothing left to release

Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Feed me no lies
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Bring me the disco king
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Dead or alive, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
