David Bowie - Modern Love

I know when to go out
And when to stay in
Get things done

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try, I try

There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye

But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for

Modern love - walks beside me
Modern love - walks on by
Modern love - gets me to the church on time
Church on time - terrifies me
Church on time - makes me party
Church on time - puts my trust in god and man
God and man - no confessions
God and man - no religion
God and man - don't believe in modern love

It's not really work
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye

But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern love - walks beside me
Modern love - walks on by
Modern love - gets me to the church on time
Church on time - terrifies me
Church on time - makes me party
Church on time - puts my trust in god and man
God and man - no confessions
God and man - no religion
God and man - don't believe in modern love

Modern love - walks beside me
Modern love - walks on by
Modern love - gets me to the church on time
Church on time - terrifies me
Church on time - makes me party
Church on time - puts my trust in god and man
God and man - no confessions
God and man - no religion
God and man - don't believe in modern love

Modern love (x12)

Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by

Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Never gonna fall for
Modern love
Modern love

David Bowie - China Girl

Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl

I could escape this feeling, with my China Girl
I feel a wreck without my, little China Girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw they stars crashing

I'm a mess without my, little China Girl
Wake up mornings where's my, little China Girl
I hear her heart's beating, loud as thunder
Saw these stars crashing down

I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
When I look at my China Girl
I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
When I look at my China Girl

I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the whites of my eyes

My little China Girl
You shouldn't mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you a man who wants to rule the world

And when I get excited
My little China Girl says
Oh baby just you shut your mouth
She says ... shhhhh
She says … shhhhh
She says
She says

And when I get excited
My little China Girl says
Oh baby just you shut your mouth
She says ... shhhhh
She says

Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl
Oh, oh, oh, ohhhh
Little China Girl

David Bowie - Let's Dance

Let’s dance
Let’s dance

Let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance, to the song they're playin' on the radio

Let's sway, while colour lights up your face
Let's sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall
Into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let’s dance
Let’s dance

Let's dance, for fear your grace should fall
Let's dance, for fear tonight is all

Let's sway, you could look into my eyes
Let's sway, under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

And if you say run, I'll run with you
And if you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall
Into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let’s dance
Let’s dance

Let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let's dance, to the song they're playin'

Let’s sway
Let’s sway
Under the moonlight, the serious moonlight

Let’s dance
Let’s
Let’s
Let’s

Let’s sway
Let’s

Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance
Let’s dance
Let’s sway
Let’s sway

Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance, Let’s dance
Let’s dance
Let’s dance
Let’s dance

David Bowie - Without You

Just when I'm ready to throw in my hand
Just when the best things in life are gone
I look into your eyes

Ohh-ohh
There's no smoke without fire
Ohh-ohh
You're exactly who I want to be with
Ohh-ohh
Without you
What would I do

And when I'm willing to call it a day
Just when I won't take another chance
I hold your hand
Ohh-ohh
There's no smoke without fire
Ohh-ohh
Woman I love you
Ohh-ohh
Without you
What would I do

David Bowie - Ricochet

Like weeds on a rockface waiting for the scythe
Ricochet - ricochet
The world is on a corner waiting for jobs
Ricochet - ricochet
Turn the holy pictures so they face the wall
And who can bear to be forgotten
And who can bear to be forgotten

March of flowers, march of dimes
These are the prisons, these are the crimes
Men wait for news while thousands are still asleep
Dreaming of tramlines factories pieces of machinery
Mine shafts things like that
March of flowers, march of dimes
These are the prisons, these are the crimes
Sound of thunder, sound of gold
Sound of the devil breaking parole
Ricochet - it's not the end of the world

Sound of thunder, sound of gold
Sound of the devil breaking parole
Ricochet - ricochet
These are the prisons, these are the crimes
Teaching life in a violent new way
Ricochet - ricochet
Turn the holy pictures so they face the wall
And who can bear to be forgotten
And who can bear to be forgotten

March of flowers, march of dimes
These are the prisons, these are the crimes
Early, before the sun, they struggle off to the gates
In their secret fearful places they see their lives
Unravelling before them
March of flowers - march of dimes
These are the prisons, these are the crimes
Sound of thunder, sound of gold
Sound of the devil breaking parole
Ricochet - it's not the end of the world

But when they get home, damp eyed and weary
They smile and crush their children to their heaving chests
Making unfulfillable promises
For who can bear to be forgotten

David Bowie - Criminal World

You never told me of your other faces
You were the widow of a wild cat
And now I know about your special kisses
And I know you know where that's at
I guess I recognise your destination
I think I see beneath your make-up
What you want is sort of separation
This is no ordinary
This is no ordinary
Ah, ah, ah

What a criminal world
The boys are like baby-faced girls
What a criminal girl
She'll show you where to shoot your gun
What a typical mother's son
The only thing that she enjoys
Is a criminal world
Where the girls are like baby-faced boys

You've got a very heavy reputation
But no-one knows about your low-life
I know a way to find a situation
And hold a candle to your high-life disguise
You caught me kneeling at your sister's door
That was no ordinary stick-up
I'm well aware just what you're looking for
I am no ordinary
I am no ordinary
Ah, ah, ah

What a criminal world
The boys are like baby-faced girls
What a criminal girl
She'll show you where to shoot your gun
What a typical mother's son
The only thing that she enjoys
Is a criminal world
Where the girls are like baby-faced boys

Baby faced boys
Baby faced boys
Baby faced
What a criminal
What a criminal
Criminal
What a criminal
What a criminal

David Bowie - Cat People (Putting Out Fire)

See these eyes so green
I can stare for a thousand years
Colder than the moon
Well it's been so long

And I've been putting out fire
With gasoline

See these eyes so red
Red like jungle burning bright
Those who feel me near
Pull the blinds and change their minds
It's been so long

Still this pulsing night
A plague I call a heartbeat
Just be still with me
Ya wouldn't believe what I've been thru
You've been so long
Well it's been so long
And I've been putting out the fire with gasoline
Putting out the fire
With gasoline

See these tears so blue
An ageless heart that can never mend
These tears can never dry
A judgement made can never bend

See these eyes so green
I can stare for a thousand years
Just be still with me
You wouldn't believe what I've been thru

Well it’s been so long
It's been so long
And I've been putting out fire with gasoline
Putting out fire with gasoline

Putting out fire
I've been putting out fire
Well, it's been so long (so long, so long)
Yes, it's been so long (so long, so long)
I've been putting out fire (been so long, so long, so long)
Been Putting out fire (Been so long, so long, so long)
Yeah, putting out fire (Been so long, so long, so long)
Putting out fire (Been so long, so long, so long)
Yeah, putting out fire (Been so long, so long, so long)
Putting out fire (Been so long, so long, so long)

Been so long (been so long, so long, so long)
Been so long (been so long, so long, so long)
I've been putting out fire
(Been so long so long so long)
I've been putting out fire

David Bowie - Shake It

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line
Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

I feel like a sail-boat
Adrift on the sea
It's a brand new day
So when you gonna phone me

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

I could take you to heaven
I could spin you to hell
But I'll take you to New York
It's the place that I know well

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

Sitting on a flagstone talking to a faceless girl
Shake it, shake it, what’s my line
Wondering what to say but my eyes do the talking so well

I duck and I sway - what's my line
Shoot at a full moon - what's my line
So what's my line – shake it, shake it baby
Shake it, shake it, whoa

Cause love is the answer
Love's talking to me
I'd scream and I'll fight for you
You're better than money

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

We're the kind of people who can shake it if we're feeling blue

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

When I'm feeling disconnected well I sure know what to do

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

Shake it baby
Shake it, shake it

I duck and I sway - what's my line
Shoot at a full moon - what's my line
So what's my line – shake it, shake it baby
Shake it, shake it, whoa

Shake it, shake it whats my line

Shake it baby
Shake it shake it

Shake it, shake it, what’s my line

Shake it baby
Shake it shake it
