  • She'll come, she'll go
    She'll lay belief on you
    Skin sweet with musky odor
    The lady from another grinning soul

    Cologne she'll wear
    Silver and Americard
    She'll drive a beetle car
    And beat you down at cool Canasta

    And when the clothes are strewn
    Don't be afraid of the room
    Touch the fullness of her breast
    Feel the love of her caress
    She will be your living end

    She'll come, she'll go
    She'll lay belief on you
    But she won't stake her life on you
    How can life become her point of view

    And when the clothes are strewn
    Don't be afraid of the room
    Touch the fullness of her breast
    Feel the love of her caress

    She will be your living end
    She will be your living end
    She will be your living end
    She will be your living end
    She will be your living Writer/s: David Bowie

  • Ade from Coventry UkLove Mike Garson's piano.
  • Ady from Leicester, United Kingdomsends shivers down my spine. The piano line sweeps you away and takes you into outer space, where only the likes of major tom can go higher.
  • Billy from West Unity, OhThe entire album was/is a master piece. Lady Grinning Soul has one of the greatest piano pieces I've ever heard. Aladdin sane is also another one of my favorites.
