Repetition

  • Johnny is a man
    And he's bigger than you
    But his overheads are high
    And he looks straight through when you ask him how the kids are

    He'll get home around seven
    'Cause the chevy's real old
    And he could have had a cadillac
    If the school had taught him right
    And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse
    He could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse

    And the food is on the table
    But the food is cold
    (Don't hit her)

    "Can't you even cook?
    What's the good of me working when you can't damn cook?"

    Well Johnny is a man
    And he's bigger than her
    I guess the bruises won't show
    If she wears long sleeves
    But the space in her eyes shows through

    And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse
    He could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse
    Shows through
    Shows through
    Shows through Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE
