  • (This is Andy Warhole and it's take one, take one)
    It's, it's Warhol actually
    (What did I say)
    Whole, it's whole as in wholes
    (Andy Warhol)
    Wah, Andy War hol, Andy War hol (he)
    Like whole hub
    He
    Ha
    Are you ready
    (Yeah)
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Like to take a cement fix
    Be a standing cinema
    Dress my friends up just for show
    See them as they really are
    Put a peephole in my brain
    Two New Pence to have a go
    I'd like to be a gallery
    Put you all inside my show

    Andy Warhol looks a scream
    Hang him on my wall
    Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
    Can't tell them apart at all

    Andy walking, Andy tired
    Andy take a little snooze
    Tie him up when he's fast asleep
    Send him on a pleasant cruise (hm hm hm)
    When he wakes up on the sea
    He sure to think of me and you
    He'll think about paint and he'll think about glue
    What a jolly boring thing to do

    Andy Warhol looks a scream
    Hang him on my wall
    Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
    Can't tell them apart at all

    Andy Warhol looks a scream
    Hang him on my wall
    Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
    Can't tell them apart at all Writer/s: David Bowie

  • Cliff from Tel AvivI know Andy Warhol made a film called 'Sleep' but I didn't realise he made one called 'Sheep' too. Thank you - I'll keep an eye out for that!
  • John from Concord, NhGood song in general. Obviously the artist Bowie and the inspiration Warhol are, in many ways, the same. No more to say.
  • David from Youngstown, OhThe opening, cut out here but on Hunky Dory (1971), is very funny. The producer mispronounces Warhol's last name. Bowie says, "War-hole, like holes. Andy War-hole."
