Rock 'N' Roll suicide

Lyrics: 

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your
cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh, you're a rock'n'roll suicide

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clock waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock'n'roll suicide

Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the mild floats ride your mind
You're so natural- religiously unkind
Oh, no love! you're not alone
you're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care

Oh no love! you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you're seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone
Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on and be not alone
Gimme your hands you're wonderful
Gimme your hands you're wonderful
Gimme your hands

Lyrics: 

Hey man oh leave me alone, you know
Hey man oh Henry, get off the phone I gotta
Hey man I gotta straighten my face
This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place
Hey man schooldays insane
Hey man my work's down the drain
Hey man she's total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it but she....then she...

Chorus:
Oh don't lean on me man, cause you can't afford the ticket
I'm back on Suffragette City
Oh don't lean on me man,
Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City
Is outta sight...she's all right

Hey man, ah! Henry, don't be unkind, go away
Hey man, I can't take you this time, no way
Hey man, droogie don't crash here
There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes

Chorus:

Ah, hey man!

Chorus:

Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am!

Lyrics: 

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
and the Spiders from Mars. He played it left hand,
But made it too far,
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band.

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan
So where were the Spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar
Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band

Oh yeah
Oooooo
Ziggy played guitar

Lyrics: 

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
Come on, 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
The bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar
You're the blessed, we're the spiders from Mars

Chorus:
So come on, come on, we've really got a good thing going
Come on, come on, if you think we're gonna make it
You better hang on to yourself
