  • Sue, I got the job
    We'll buy the house
    You'll need to rest
    But now we'll make it

    Sue, the clinic called
    The x-ray's fine
    I brought you home,
    I just said home

    Sue, you said you wanted writ
    "Sue the virgin" on your stone
    For your grave
    Why too dark to speak the words?
    'Fore I know that you have a son
    Oh, folly, Sue

    Ride the train, I'm far from home
    In a season of crime none need atone,
    I kissed your face
    Sue, I pushed you down beneath the weeds,
    Endless faith in hopeless deeds,
    I kissed your face
    I touched your face

    Sue, goodbye

    Sue, I found your note
    That you wrote last night
    It can't be right
    You went with him
    Sue, I never dreamed
    I'm such a fool
    Right from the start
    You went with that clown Writer/s: Bob Bhamra, David Bowie, Maria Schneider, Paul Bateman
