      About "Teenage Wildlife"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Teenage Wildlife"

      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)
