CRUISING ROUND ALL HER STREETS, GOING TO THE BARS.
SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE STARS.
ESCAPING FROM THE PRESSURES AND THE PROBLEMS SEEMS SO RIGHT,
BUT DON’T YOU CARE HOW SHE FEELS GOING HOME IN THE MORNING LIGHT.

MAKING UP HER FACE WELL, COVERING THE SCARS,
PAINTING ON THE FALSE GRIN, THEN WATCHING FOR YOUR CARS.
DEPRESSION COMES SO EASY WHEN THERE’S NOWHERE LEFT TO TURN,
THE PRIEST ALWAYS REMINDS HER, IT’S IN HELL SHE’LL BURN.

TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
BUT SHE KNOWS IT’S EASIER THAN LIFE UPON THE DOLE.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP· CRIES WITHOUT A SOUND.

CRUISING ROUND ALL HER STREETS, GOING TO THE BARS
SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE STARS.
ESCAPING FROM THE PRESSURES AND THE PROBLEMS SEEMS SO RIGHT,
BUT DON’T YOU CARE HOW SHE FEELS GOING HOME IN THE MORNING LIGHT?

TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
BUT SHE KNOWS IT’S EASIER THAN LIFE UPON THE DOLE
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
BUT SHE KNOWS IT’S EASIER THAN LIFE UPON THE DOLE.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, CRIES WITHOUT A SOUND.

Never Again

 

I SEE YOU ACROSS THE DANCE FLOOR
WHAT DO I SEE?
A CROWD OF GIRLS HANGING AROUND YOU
NO ROOM FOR ME

NEVER AGAIN (WILL I COME BACK HERE)
NEVER AGAIN
NEVER AGAIN (CAN’T STAND THE TORTURE)
NEVER AGAIN

I DECIDE THAT I CAN’T STAND IT
I’VE GOT TO GO
YOU WILL NEVER EVER NOTICE ME
THAT MUCH I KNOW

NEVER AGAIN (WILL I THINK OF YOU)
NEVER AGAIN
NEVER AGAIN (WHAT GOOD WILL IT DO)
NEVER AGAIN

YOU CAN PICK AND CHOOSE
THE GIRLS ARE FALLING AT YOUR FEET
THEN ONE DAY WHEN YOU’VE GOT NO ONE
MAYBE THEN WE’LL MEET
YOU CAN PICK AND CHOOSE
THE GIRLS ARE FALLING AT YOUR FEET
THEN ONE DAY WHEN YOU’VE GOT NO ONE
ONE DAY WHEN YOU’VE GOT NO ONE
ONE DAY WHEN YOU’VE GOT NO ONE

NEVER AGAIN
NEVER AGAIN
NEVER AGAIN WHOA NO
NEVER AGAIN
NEVER AGAIN WHOA NO X2

NEVER AGAIN

Nothing At All

 

YOU SAY YOU NEED ME
THEN YOU TURN AND WALK AWAY

YOU SAY YOU WANT ME
AND THAT THIS TIME YOU’RE GONNA STAY

WHY DO YOU ALWAYS MESS ME AROUND?
WHY CAN’T YOU KEEP YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND?

YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE REALLY SOMETHING
YOU THINK YOU’VE GOT IT ALL
BUT IF YOU REALLY COUNT IT ALL UP
YOU HAVE GOT NOTHING (AT ALL)

I’VE WASTED MY TIME
WAITING FOR YOU TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND
I’M MOVING ON NOW
I’VE GOT A REAL MAN TO FIND
I’VE GOT A LIFE TO LEAD OF MY OWN
SO IT’S GOODBYE –
DON’T BOTHER TO PHONE

YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE REALLY SOMETHING
YOU THINK YOU’VE GOT IT ALL
BUT IF YOU REALLY COUNT IT ALL UP
YOU HAVE NOT NOTHING (AT ALL)

NOTHING AT ALL

NOTHING AT ALL

NOTHING AT ALL

NOTHING AT ALL

Freedom Street

 

WALKING DOWN THIS STREET I’VE WALKED A THOUSAND TIME BEFORE
BUT SOMEHOW THINGS DON’T LOOK THE SAME
EVERYTHING SEEMS CLEARER NOW, I KNOW WHAT i MUST DO
I’VE GOT TO GET AWAY FROM YOU

I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS CARED FOR ME
BUT NOW I FEEL SO HAPPY CO I’M FREE

WHAT WE HAD TOGETHER DIED A LONG LONG TIME AGO
BUT WE STAYED TOGETHER JUST THE SAME
I AM DOING BOTH OF US A FAVOUR CAN’T YOU SEE
YOU’LL GET ON BETTER WITHOUT ME

THE TIME HAS COME FOR US TO MOVE ALONG
DON’T LOOK FOR ME TOMORROW I’LL BE GONE

NOW THAT MY CHANCE HAS COME – I CAN HARDLY WAIT
THERE’S LOT OF THINGS TO DO – I WON’T HESITATE
NOW THAT MY CHANCE HAS COME – I CAN HARDLY WAIT
THERE’S LOTS OF THINGS TO DO – I WON’T HESITATE, I WON’T HESITATE

THERE’S A BIG WIDE WORLD OUT THERE THAT’S WAITING JUST FOR ME
FULL OF THINGS I THOUGHT I’D NEVER SEE
I AM GOING TO HAVE THE FUN THAT I THINK I DESERVE
WITH NO-ONE WATCHING OVER ME

I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WAITING THERE FOR ME
ALL I KNOW IS I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE

Hang On To Yourself

 

Words & music by David Bowie

Live recording at The Venue, Aberdeen, 1989

WELL SHE’S A TONGUE TWISTING STORM,
SHE WILL COME TO THE SHOW TONIGHT
PRAYING TO THE LIGHT MACHINE

SHE WANTS MY HONEY NOT MY MONEY
SHE’S A FUNKY-THIGH COLLECTOR
LAYIN’ ON ‘LECTRIC DREAMS

CHORUS
SO COME ON, COME ON, WE’VE REALLY GOT A GOOD THING GOING
WELL COME ON, WELL COME ON, IF YOU THINK WE’RE GONNA MAKE IT
YOU BETTER HANG ON TO YOURSELF

WE CAN’T DANCE, WE DON’T TALK MUCH, WE JUST BALL AND PLAY
BUT THEN WE MOVE LIKE TIGERS ON VASELINE
WELL THE BITTER COMES OUT BETTER ON A STOLEN GUITAR
YOU’RE THE BLESSED, WE’RE THE SPIDERS FROM MARS

CHORUS (X3)

COME ON, AH, COME ON, AH (REPEAT AD INF.)

Pink

 

HE LOOK AROUND YOU AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE
A WORLD OF CRAZY PEOPLE, ALL CALLED YOU AND ME
WALKING AROUND THE STREETS NOTHING TO DO
DON’T LOOK AT ME, I CAN’T TELL THEM WHAT TO DO
I OWE THEM NOTHING – AT ALL

THE WORLD IS CHANGING, IT’S CHANGING ALL THE TIME
I’LL SOON HAVE NOTHING LEFT, NOTHING THAT IS MINE
I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES, I’LL PLAY THE GAME
YOU’LL GET ALONG MY FRIEND IF YOU JUST PLAY IT TAME
THEY’LL STOP AT NOTHING – YOU’LL SEE

CHILDREN ARE GROWING UP AND LEARNING ALL THE TIME
IF YOU LEAVE THEM ALONG I’M SURE THEY’LL TURN OUT FINE
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, YOU’LL BE LEFT ALONG
IF YOU INTERFERE WITH THEM YOU’LL WISH YOU’D STAYED AT HOME
THEY’LL GIVE YOU NO THANKS – OH NO

HEY LOOK AROUND YOU AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE
A WORLD OF CRAZY PEOPLE, ALL CALLED YOU AND ME
WALKING AROUND THE STREETS, NOTHING TO
DON’T LOOK AT ME I CAN’T TELL THEM WHAT TO DO
I OWE THEM NOTHING – AT ALL

I OWE THEM NOTHING – AT ALL

I OWE THEM NOTHING – AT ALL

Journey

 

WE’RE GONG ON A JOURNEY
INTO ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME
WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’LL FIND THERE
BUT WE’RE – SURE GONNA HAVE SOME FUN

TRAVELLING ON OUR OWN NOW
WE’RE LEAVING EVERYONE BEHIND
GOING OFF ON OUR ADVENTURE
– TO A FOREIGN LAND

THEY’VE TOLD US ALL ABOUT IT
SO WE ARE READY TO BEGIN
WE’RE GONNA DANCE THE NIGHTS AWAY
SPEND DAYS – LYING IN THE SUN

MEET NEW EXCITING PEOPLE
SEE SIGHTS WE’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE
THESE THINGS ARE WAITING FOR US
– SO COME ON LET’S GO

WE DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOING TO
WE’RE ON OUR WAY AT LAST NOW
WE’RE OFF ON OUR ADVENTURE SO
WE’D BETTER GET THERE FAST

WE DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOING TO
WE DON’T KNOW WHEN WE’LL GET THERE
BUT WHEN WE DO WE’LL KNOW
WHAT WE’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR

WE’RE GOING ON A JOURNEY
INTO ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME
WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’LL FIND THERE
BUT WE’RE – SURE GONNA HAVE SOME FUN

TRAVELLING ON OUR OWN NOW
WE’RE LEAVING EVERYONE BEHIND
GOING OFF ON OUR ADVENTURE
TO A FOREIGN LAND.

FIVE TO NINE AND WE’RE RUNNING TO EAT
COULD THAT BE THE “DONCASTERS” IN OUR SEAT?
EVERY MORNING FILLED WITH QUIET DREAD
IT’S OKAY LADY WE’LL TALK OVER YOUR HEAD

LOOKING ALONG TO THE BEACHCOMBER BAR
THE RAIN KEEPS FALLING BUT IT’S NOT THAT FAR
SITTING AT THE TABLE DRINKING “MALLING GRANGE”
TELLING THE WAITRESS JUST TO KEEP THE CHANGE

IS THAT THE DAMBUSTERS, WHERE’S UNCLE CHRIS?
THE MADONNA COPYCATS WILL PERSIST
LOOK OVER THERE IT’S “PUSH BUTTON CLICK”,
WHICH LITTLE MADAM WILL THEY PICK

CALLING, CALLING, CALLING

LOOKING ALONG TO THE BEACHCOMBER BAR
THE RAIN KEEPS FALLING BUT IT’S NOT THAT FAR
SITTING AT THE TABLE DRINKING “MALLING GRANGE”
TELLING THE WAITRESS JUST TO KEEP THE CHANGE

TOM AND JIMMY SCREAM UP THE MACHINE
IT’S TIME FOR BONZO TO INTERVENE
ANOTHER TEN PENCE GETS FIFTY BACK
ENOUGH FOR TODAY LET’S GO FOR A SNACK

CALLING, CALLING, CALLING

LOOKING FOR FOOD AT THE STROKE OF TWELVE
EIGHT FISH SUPPERS ALL FOR OURSELVES
TAKE THEM BACK TO THE UNPADDED CELL
I MUST BE DRUNK COS I DON’T FEEL WELL

CALLING, CALLING, CALLING

CALLING, CALLING, CALLING

CALLING, CALLING, CALLING

Dreaming

 

IS THIS REAL, I’M GETTING CONFUSED
MY MIND CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE
I DON’T KNOW, WHAT IS RIGHT OR WHAT IS WRONG
AM I DREAMING ONCE AGAIN?

DAY IS NIGHT (DAY IS NIGHT)
NIGHT IS DAY
YOU ARE TELLING ME TO RUN AWAY (YOU ARE TELLING ME)
FIRST YOU’RE THERE (FIRST YOU’RE THERE)
THEN YOU’RE HERE (IT’S NOT CLEAR)
IT’S NOT CLEAR

WHEN I WAKE, THINGS WILL BE RIGHT
EVERYTHING WILL BE THE SAME
THOUGH YOU SAID, IT WOULD NOT BE LONG
TILL I’M DREAMING ONCE AGAIN

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO? (WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?)
HOW DO I KNOW THAT IS TRUE?
IN THIS DREAM
I SHOULD SCREAM (I SHOULD SCREAM)
AND I DO (AND I DO)

WHEN I DREAM, I THINK, I KNOW
THAT THIS IS NOT REALITY
BUT I’M NOT SURE, MAYBE I’M WRONG
MY MIND’S PLAYING TRICKS ON ME

WHAT YOU’RE SAYING TO ME
DOESN’T MAKE MUCH SENSE AT ALL (WHAT YOU’RE SAYING TO ME)
WHY CAN’T I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN? (WHY CAN’T I UNDERSTAND)
WAS IT ALL IN MY HEAD
DID NOTHING REALLY HAPPEN AT ALL? (WAS IS ALL IN MY HEAD)
PLEASE DON’T TELL ME THAT IT WAS A DREAM (DON’T TELL ME IT’S A DREAM)
