      About "Oh! You Pretty Things"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Oh! You Pretty Things"

      Wake up you sleepy head
      Put on some clothes, shake up your bed
      Put another log on the fire for me
      I've made some breakfast and coffee
      Look out my window and what do I see
      A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
      All the nightmares came today
      And it looks as though they're here to stay

      What are we coming to
      No room for me, no fun for you
      I think about a world to come
      Where the books were found by the golden ones
      Written in pain, written in awe
      By a puzzled man who questioned
      What we were here for
      All the strangers came today
      And it looks as though they're here to stay

      Oh you Pretty Things
      Don't you know you're driving your
      Mamas and Papas insane
      Oh you Pretty Things
      Don't you know you're driving your
      Mamas and Papas insane
      Let me make it plain
      You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

      Look at your children
      See their faces in golden rays
      Don't kid yourself they belong to you
      They're the start of a coming race
      The earth is a bitch
      We've finished our news
      Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
      All the strangers came today
      And it looks as though they're here to stay

      Oh you Pretty Things
      Don't you know you're driving your
      Mamas and Papas insane
      Oh you Pretty Things
      Don't you know you're driving your
      Mamas and Papas insane
      Let me make it plain
      You gotta make way for the Homo Superior
