  • Now we can talk in confidence
    Did you guess that we've been done wrong?
    Lies jumped the queue to be first in line
    Such a shameless design

    He thinks he's well screened from the man at the top
    It's a shame that his children disagree
    They coolly decide to sell him down the line
    Daddy's brainwashing time

    He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me
    He's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me

    She's quite enthralled with the childhood of yore
    When a unit was a figure, not a she
    When lovers chose each other, now the perks are due
    Another memo to screw

    She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me
    She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me

    Can you wipe your nose, my child
    Without them slotting in your file a photograph?
    Can you sleep alone at night
    Wake to find the scorching light of neighbor Jim?
    He's come to turn you in

    Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me
    Another dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me
    Another dodo, didn't hear it from me Writer/s: David Bowie
