Boss Of Me - The Words

“I look to the stars” 

And you though we posted a young picture of David Jones yesterday. In this detail from a contact sheet of 48 different images, the baby Bowie is pictured at just ten months old.

The wee nipper is undeniably looking to the stars in the selected frames (well, 1947 was the year of the Roswell incident), and that’s our tenuous link to today’s lyric, Boss Of Me, track number nine from The Next Day.

As we’ve suggested previously, we will endeavour to provide a daily marriage of lyrics from The Next Day to images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A

 

 

Boss Of Me  (David Bowie/Gerry Leonard)
 
Tell me when you’re sad
I wanna make it cool again
I know you’re feeling bad
Tell me when you’re cool again
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
 
We fly through the night
The tears on your lips
Life has your mind and soul
It spins on your hips
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
 
You look at me and you weep
For the free blue sky
I look to the stars
As they flicker and float in your eyes
And under these wings of steel
The small town dies
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
 
Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
