David Bowie - Little Wonder

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
Sleepy time, 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

Sending me so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
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

(If it's good to ya, it's gotta be good for ya)

Sending me so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
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

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

David Bowie - Looking For Satellites

Nowhere
Shampoo
TV
Come back
Boy's own
Slim tie
Showdown
Can't stop

Nowhere
Shampoo
TV
Come back
Boy's own
Slim tie
Showdown
Can't stop

Where do we go from here?
There's something in the sky
Shining in the light
Spinning and far away

Nowhere
Shampoo
TV
Come back
Boy's own
Slim tie
Showdown
Can't stop


Satellite
Satellite
Satellite
Satellite

Looking for satellites
Looking for satellites

Where do we go to now
There's nothing in our eyes
As lonely as a moon
Misty and far away

Nowhere
Shampoo
TV
Come back
Boy's own
Slim tie
Showdown
Can't stop

Satellite
Satellite
Satellite
Satellite

Satellite
Satellite
Satellite
Satellite

Looking satellites
Looking satellites

Where do we go from here?

David Bowie - Battle For Britain (The Letter)

My, my, the time do fly
When it's in another pair of pants
And a loser I will be
For I've never been a winner in my life

I got used to stressing pain
I used the sucker pills to pity for the self
Oh, it's the animal in me
But I'd rather be a beggarman on the shelf

Don't be so forlorn, it's just the payoff
It's the rain before the storm
On a better day, I'll take you by the hand
And I'll walk you through the doors

Don't be so forlorn, it's just the payoff
It's the rain before the storm
Don't you let my letter get you down
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you

My, my, but time do fly
When it's in another pair of pants
And illusion I will be
For I've never been a sinner, la de da

Don't be so forlorn, it's just the payoff
It's the rain before the storm
Don't you let my letter get you down
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you

Don't you let my letter get you down, down, down, down
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you
Don't you let my letter get you down, down, down, down
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you

Down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down

David Bowie - Seven Years In Tibet

Are you OK
You've been shot in the head
And I'm holding your brains
The old woman said
So I drink in the shadows
Of an evening sky
See nothing at all

The stars look so special
And the snow looks so old
The frail form is drifting
Beyond the yoga zone
Turn to question the mountain
Why pigs can fly
It's nothing at all

I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes
I praise to you

I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes, nothing ever goes
Nothing

David Bowie - Dead Man Walking

He swivels his head
Tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City

There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
Is it all just human disguise
As I walk down the aisle

(Backing vocals)
Gone gone gone spinning slack through reality
Dance my way falling up through the years
Till I swivel back round when I fly fly fly
Losing breath from the water when I'm gone gone gone

And I'm gone gone gone
Now I'm older than movies
Let me dance away
Now I'm wiser than dreams
Let me fly fly fly
While I'm touching tomorrow
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall

And I'm gone
Like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone through a crack in the past

Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man walking

Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and their bones
And the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked and new
Like a bad tempered child
On a rain slicked street

And I'm gone gone gone
Now I'm older than movies
Let me dance away
Now I'm wiser than dreams
Let me fly fly fly
While I'm touching tomorrow
And I know who's there
When silhouettes fall

And I'm gone

And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone, through the crack in the past

Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man
Like a dead man walking

And I'm gone gone gone
Let me dance dance dance
And I'm gone gone gone
Let me dance dance dance


And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone, through a crack in the past
And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
And I'm gone, through a crack in the past

Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man walking
Like a dead man

David Bowie - Telling Lies

Gorgeous girls are bound to meet
To talk of stars and kings and feet
Through the chromosomes of space and time
Me I'm fast like bad infection
Gasping for my resurrection
Swear to me in times of war and stress

Telling lies, telling lies
Telling lies, telling lies
Telling lies
Ooh, ah, visionary
Ooh, ah, missionary
Telling lies
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies
Ooh, ah, visionary
Ooh, ah, missionary
Telling lies
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies

Shadow falls in shrinking smiles
See me poised at the happy games
Standing in the mouth of all that's pure
Come straggling in your tattered remnants
You'll come to me in tears and blame
I'm your future, I'm tomorrow, I'm the end

Telling lies, telling lies
Telling lies, telling lies
Telling lies
Ooh, ah, visionary
Ooh, ah, missionary
Telling lies
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies
Ooh, ah, visionary
Ooh, ah, missionary
Telling lies
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies

Telling lies
Ooh, ah, ooh
Ooh, ah, ooh
Ooh, ah, ooh
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies (ooh, ah, ooh)
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies (ooh, ah, ooh)
Feels like something's gonna happen this year
Telling lies (ooh, ah, ooh)
Telling lies (ooh, ah, ooh)
Feels like something's going to happen this year

David Bowie - Law (Earthlings On Fire)

I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I don't want knowledge, I want certainty

In the street a man shouts out loud
A wallet drops and money flies into the midday sun

With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
Oh I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire

With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
Sure I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire

I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I don't want knowledge, I want certainty

In a house a man drops dead
As he hits the floor he sighs
"What a morning"

With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
Sure I get a little bit afraid

With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
With the sound, with the sound, with the sound of the ground
Sure I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire
Earthling son fire
Earthlings on fire

Oh I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire
Earthlings on fire

I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (earthlings on fire)
I don't want knowledge, I want certainty (earthlings on fire)
Oh I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I don't want knowledge, I want certainty
I don't want knowledge
