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)

You’ve Been Around – David Bowie

Where’s the pain in the violent night?
I’m depressed by the grin
I stay over many years
I should have thought of that
For the love of the money
Like a black-hearted violin
It’s the nature of being

It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell bad from wrong
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me

Where the flesh meets the spirit world
Where the traffic is thin
I slip from a vacant view
I should have thought of that
And the sound of tomorrow
Like a black-hearted vile thing
Like the silence of tension
It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell good from bad
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
Can’t pass you by
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-change!
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
but you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
can’t pass you by

She’ll Drive the Big Car – David Bowie

She waited by the moon
She was sick with fear and cold
She felt too old for all of this
Of course she never showed
She lugged her suitcase to the bus
Melted home through the snow
North along riverside

She slips beneath the sheets
A husbands quiet devoted wife
But strangers sad and nervous
By the dawns early light
Loves lies like a dead cloud
On a shabby, yellow lawn
Up on riverside

She’ll drive the big car
He’ll sit behind
She’ll keep an eye on Jessica
South along the Hudson

She’ll turn the radio high
Find a station playing sad, sad soul
Just a little bit louder now
South along the Hudson yea

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

And she’ll drive the big car
And talk herself insane
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now

Way back when Millennium
Meant racing to the light
He promised her a dream-life
He’d take her back to street-life

Away from violent water
With its Cormorants and leaves
Up on riverside

She’ll drive the big car
But he’ll sit behind
Bursting her bubbles of Ludlow and Grand
South along the Hudson
She’ll turn the radio way up high
Find a station playing sad, sad soul

Just a little bit louder now
South along the Hudson

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

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
