About "Teenage Wildlife" by David Bowie

About

David Bowie – Teenage Wildlife Lyrics

Lyrics

Well, how come you only want tomorrow?
With its promise of something hard to do

A real-life adventure
Worth more than pieces of gold

Blue skies above, sun on your arms
Strength in your stride and hope in those squeaky-clean eyes
(Hope in those squeaky-clean eyes)
You'll get chilly receptions everywhere you go
Blinded with desire, I guess the season is on

So you train by shadow boxing, search for the truth
But it's all, but it's all used up
Break open your million-dollar weapon and push your luck
Still you push, still you push your luck

A broken-nosed mogul are you
One of the new-wave boys

Same old thing in brand, new drag
Comes sweeping into view, whoa, hoe, hoe, hoe, hoe, hoe
As ugly as a teenage millionaire
Pretending it's a whizz-kid world

You'll take me aside, and say

"Well, David, what shall I do?
They wait for me in the hallway"
I'll say, "Don't ask me, I don't know any hallways"
But they move in numbers and they've got me in a corner

I feel like a group of one
No, no, they can't do this to me

I'm not some piece of teenage wildlife
(Ooo, not some piece of teenage wildlife
Ooo, not some piece of teenage wildlife)

Those midwives to history put on their bloody robes
And the word is that the hunted one is out there on his own

And you're alone for maybe the last time
And you breathe for a long time

Then you howl like a wolf in a trap and you daren't look behind

You fall to the ground, like a leaf from a tree
And look up, one time, at that vast blue sky
Scream out of line as they shoot you down

No, no, I'm not a piece of teenage wildlife
(Ooo, not a piece of teenage wildlife)
I'm not a piece of teenage wildlife
(Ooo, not a piece teenage wildlife

Ooo, not a piece of teenage wildlife)

And no one will have seen and no one will confess
The fingerprints will prove that you coudn't pass the test
There'll be others on the line, filing past, who'll whisper low

"I miss you," he really had to go

Well, each to his own, he was another piece of teenage wildlife
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)
'Nother piece of teenage wildlife
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)

'Nother piece of teenage wildlife
(Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)

Wildlife (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)
Wildlife (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)
Wildlife (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)
Wildlife (Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife

Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife
Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife
Ooo, 'nother piece of teenage wildlife)
