"Don't Look Down" as written by and James Williamson Iggy Pop....
Don't look down
They're making sorta crazy sounds
Don't look down, no
Don't know who else came to kneel
On this empty battlefield
But when I hear that crazy sound, I don't look down
From Central Park to shanty town
I always hear that crazy sound
From New York to shanty town
There's always something else
Don't look down, no

I went this morning to the cemetery
To see old Rudy Valentino buried
Lipstick traces on his name
He never looked down
'Cause they were making crazy sounds (sound)
From Central park to shanty town
He always heard that crazy sound
There's always something else
Don't look down (don't look down) no

When I see you standing there
I can't see the clothes you wear
I just hear that crazy sound
And I can't look down
From Central Park to shanty town
I've always heard that crazy sound
From New York to shanty town
There's always something else
Don't look down, no
Don't look down
Don't look, don't look down

No I won't be bored I won't be there
Look at life it's no piece of cake
When I hear that crazy sound
I don't look down
From Central Park to shanty town
I always hear that crazy sound
From New York to shanty town
There's always something else
Don't look down (don't look down, don't look down)
Don't look down, no
Well, don't look, don't look down
Don't look down

    General CommentBowie said himself that for the Tonight album, he tried to do Reggae. Very unsuccessful. Oh, if you watch the Jazzin For Blue Jean video, the instrumental version of this song is played in the beginning. The vocals, however, are played at the credits.
