Haven't fallen down in a while Sitting here, walking the line Well, that's okay; I ain't no book 'Cause nobody's off the hook
See you looking so sad Trying to live your life in style Well, that's okay; you ain't no crook 'Cause nobody's off the hook
I remember you when, looking like a teenager How you have become a man with all the power Running the moon aground Who would ever have thought, hanging with a homo and hairdresser You would become the one desired in every woman's heart But you never will lose your heart with those little boys
Haven't fallen down in a while Sitting here, walking the line Well, that's okay 'cause I have looked And nobody's off the hook
'Cause life will take that little heart and bring you to your knees Threatening to break it for the final time And you'll believe it Yes, you will believe it
But look Nobody's off the hook

David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
