Diamond Dogs [Bowie]

As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent
You asked for the latest party
With your silicone hump and your ten-inch stump
Dressed like a priest, you was, Tod Browning's Freak, you was

Crawling down the alley on your hands and knee
I'm sure you're not protected, for it's plain to see
The Diamond Dogs are poachers and they hide behind trees
Hunt you to the ground, they will, mannequins with kill appeal

(Will they come?)
I keep a friend serene
(Will they come?)
Oh, baby, come unto me
(Will they come?)
Well, she's come and been gone

Come out of the garden, baby
You'll catch your death in the fog
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs

That Halloween Jack is a real cool cat
And he lives on top of Manhattan Chase
The elevator's broke so he slides down a rope
On to the street below, oh, Tarzie, go, man, go

Meet his little hussy with his ghost-town approach
Her face is sans feature, but she wears a Dali brooch
Sweetly reminiscent, something mother used to bake
Wrecked-up and paralyzed, the Diamond Dogs are sableized

(Will they come?)
I keep a friend serene
(Will they come?)
Oh, baby, come unto me
(Will they come?)
Well, she's come and been gone

Come out of the garden, baby
You'll catch your death in the fog
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs

Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, call them the Diamond Dogs
Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, call them the Diamond Dogs

Oh, hoo
A-roo
Hoo, hoo

In the year of the scavenger, the season of the bitch
Sashay on the boardwalk, scurry to the ditch
Just another future song, lonely little kitsch
There's gonna be sorrow, try and wake up tomorrow

(Will they come?)
I keep a friend serene
(Will they come?)
Oh, baby, come unto me
(Will they come?)
Well, she's come and been gone

Come out of the garden, baby
You'll catch your death in the fog
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs
Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs

Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, call them the Diamond Dogs
Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, call them the Diamond Dogs

Bow, wow
Woof, woof
Bow, wow, wow

Call them the Diamond Dogs

Dogs

Call them the Diamond Dogs
Call them, they call them
Call them the Diamond Dogs
Call them, they call them

Whoa, ho, call them the Diamond Dogs

Keep cool, Diamond Dogs rule, okay

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Beware of the Diamond Dogs
