      About "Slip Away"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Slip Away"

      Oogie waits for just another day
      Drags his bones
      To see the Yankees play
      Bones Boy talks and flickers gray
      Oh, they slip away

      Once a time
      They nearly might have been
      Bones and Oogie on a silver screen
      No one knew what they could do
      Except for me and you
      They slip away
      They slip away

      Don't forget
      To keep your head warm
      Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
      Watching all the world
      And war torn
      How I wonder where you are
      Oo-o
      Sailing over
      Coney Island
      Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
      We were dumb
      But you were fun, boy
      How I wonder where you are
      Oo-o

      Oogie knew there's never ever time
      Some of us will always stay behind
      Down in space it's always 1982
      The joke we always knew
      Oo-oo
      What'sa matter with you
      C'mon, let's go
      Slip away
      Oo-o

      Don't forget
      To keep your head warm
      Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
      Watching all the world
      And war torn
      How I wonder where you are
      Oo-o
      Sailing over
      Coney Island
      Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
      We were dumb
      But you were fun, boy
      How I wonder where you are
      Oo-o
      Sailing
