(David Bowie)

 

IN THE VILLA OF ORMEN

IN THE VILLA OF ORMEN

STANDS A SOLITARY CANDLE

AH AH AH AH

IN THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

IN THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

YOUR EYES

 

ON THE DAY OF EXECUTION

ON THE DAY OF EXECUTION

ONLY WOMEN KNEEL AND SMILE

AH AH AH AH

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

YOUR EYES

YOUR EYES

 

AH AH AH

 

AH AH AH

 

IN THE VILLA OF ORMEN

IN THE VILLA OF ORMEN

STANDS A SOLITARY CANDLE

AH AH AH AH

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

YOUR EYES

YOUR EYES

 

AH AH AH

 

OO OO OO OO

OOO

OO OO OO OO

OOO

OO OO OO OO

 

SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE DAY HE DIED

SPIRIT ROSE A METRE THEN STEPPED ASIDE

SOMEBODY ELSE TOOK HIS PLACE AND BRAVELY CRIED:

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

HOW MANY TIMES DOES AN ANGEL FALL?

HOW MANY  PEOPLE LIE INSTEAD OF TALKING TALL?

HE TROD ON SACRED GROUND HE CRIED ALOUD INTO THE CROWD

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M NOT A GANGSTAR

 

I CAN’T ANSWER WHY

I’M A BLACKSTAR

JUST GO WITH ME

I’M NOT A FILMSTAR

IMMA TAKE YOU HOME

I’M A BLACKSTAR

TAKE YOUR PASSPORT AND SHOES

I’M NOT A POPSTAR

AND YOUR SEDATIVES BOO

I’M A BLACKSTAR

YOU’RE THE FLASH IN THE PAN

I’M NOT A MARVELSTAR

I’M THE GREAT I AM

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

I’M A BLACKSTAR I’M WAY UP, ON MONEY, I’VE GOT GAME

I SEE RIGHT, SO WIDE, SO OPEN-HEARTED PAIN

I WANT EAGLES IN MY DAYDREAMS, DIAMONDS IN MY EYES

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE DAY HE DIED

SPIRIT ROSE A METRE THEN STEPPED ASIDE

SOMEBODY ELSE TOOK HIS PLACE AND BRAVELY CRIED:

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A STARSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

I CAN’T ANSWER WHY

I’M NOT A GANGSTAR

BUT I CAN TELL YOU HOW

I’M NOT A FLAMSTAR

WE WERE BORN UPSIDE DOWN

I’M A STARS STAR

BORN THE WRONG WAY ROUND

I’M NOT A WHITESTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

OO OO OO OO

 

I’M NOT A GANGSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

OO OO OO OO

 

I’M NOT A PORNSTAR

I’M NOT A WANDERING STAR

 

OO OO OO OO

 

I’M A BLACKSTAR

I’M A BLACKSTAR

 

IN THE VILLA OF ORMEN

STANDS A SOLITARY CANDLE

AH AH AH AH

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

YOUR EYES

 

ON THE DAY OF EXECUTION

ONLY WOMEN KNEEL AND SMILE

AH AH AH AH

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL

YOUR EYES

YOUR EYES

 

AH AH AH
