"Right" as written by and David Bowie....
Taking it all the right way
Keeping it in the back
Taking it all the right way
Never no turning back
Never need, no
Never no turning back

Flying just a sweet place
Coming inside and safe
Flying just a sweet place
Never been known to fail
Never been, no
Never been known to fail

Wishing you, wishing that sometimes (sometimes)
Doing it, doing it right, 'till, ahh time, (one time)
Gets you when you're down
(Nobody, nobody, do it again, get off)
Ahhh, sometimes, (doing)
Wishing sometimes (give it back)
Up there, up there (giving it)
Oh, my darling
(No) ah, my darling, (giving it) ah (up there) why?
(Gimme, gimme) up there, (yeah) gimme, (doing)
Taking with me (sometimes)
Loving it, doing it (right) 'till (take it) one time
Gimme (doing it)
Giving it (giving it back)

Taking it all the right way (taking it)
Keeping it in the back (hey hey)
Taking it all the right way
Never no turning back (never never never never)
Never no turning back

Taking it all the right way
Keeping it in the back
Taking it all the right way
Never no turning back
Never need, no
Never no turning back

(Taking it)
Taking it all the right way (yeah)
Keeping it in the back (taking it)
Taking it all the right way
Never no turning back (never never never never)
Never no turning back

Flying just a sweet place
Coming inside and safe
Flying just a sweet place
Never been known to fail
Never been, no
Never been known to fail

(Taking it all the right way)
Taking it all the right way
(Keeping it in the back)
Keeping it in the back
(Taking it all the right way)
Taking it all the right way
(Never no turning back) never never never
(Never need, no)
(Never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)
(Never need no)
(Never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)
(Never, never, never)
(Never, never, never, never)
(Never, never)
(Never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)
(I never, I never, I never, I never
I never, I never, I never, I never)
(I never no turning back)
(Never no turning back)

    General CommentAnal Sex?? Drugs? Call me innocent, but I always took the song as a bittersweet yet uplifting tune reflecting on life itself...about taking our disappointments and loss and the passage of time the right way - taking it all the right way. And not dwelling on the past and things we cannot change - never no turning back. This song has helped me at different times throughout my life when I needed to be reminded that our time here on Earth is finite and irreplaceable, and about cherishing even the hard times because every unique thing just happens once. And what a gift it is to feel it all - good and bad - and the privelege it is to simply be alive ...

    General CommentI do not know why, but I agree with the cold winter nights part, strange when I bought this album in a blazing hot summer & listened for weeks on end in the sun

    My Interpretationthis is about anal sex, probably with a man, he's on the receiving side as well as the giving side, what we call versatile, but probably more on the receiving side, what we call bottom. The whole song is about the experience of anal sex, how it is pleasurable and confusing. It is also prophetic, talking about coming inside and safe, a thing that will only happen in the 80s with the arrival of HIV and safe sex, he could not know this at that time, he can't also be taken as a drug song disguised as an anal sex song.

    General CommentIt's definately about sex. Whether its anal? Could be....but the line
    "Doing it, doing it right, 'till, ahh time" is definately sexual to me.....We all know what "ahh" time is... ;)
