lyrics

I'm Bowie in space
doing lines of coke
it's floating in my face
on stardust and smoke

Skip the limo, fuck a demo
I'm David Bowie, get the memo
here's the bio, vanguard since a child
my hair was wild
american culture was my style
tunes my passion
formed some bands and action
first album didn't grip
till major Tom became a hit
then Tony Defries had the plan
to act famous before I am
flew to NY, signed RCA
met Andy and Lou
and announced I'm gay
Soon ideas will coalesce
Kubrick, Kabuki in cross dress

I brought Ziggy to earth in 72
with the spiders as my crew
We dropped rise and fall
and you were sold
a little bit later we went gold
tours got longer, we got bigger
added more coke to my milk and liquor
yeah, mars helped me escape
but the more I gave
the more Zigg would take
then Tony Defries claimed i'm broke
years of work this is a joke
John Lennon said attack them
with good lawyers and new management
indeed I won't be duped
I'm heading east to regroup
no more Defries, no more Ziggy
off to Berlin with Eno and Iggy

I laid the groundwork for swag
laid the groundwork for glam
added drag to rock and roll
your heroes know who I am

I laid the groundwork for swag
laid the groundwork for glam
added drag to rock and roll
all heros know who I am
