"Achoo" as written by and Ronald D Mael....
Who knows what the winds gonna bring when the invalids sing
"La la's" with a powerful sting that'll stop any opera or any Bing
Sing, spread the news across the land
All winners will be also-rans
Achoo - one size fits everyone
Achoo - one breath, the deed has been done

Grey hair and a dash and a flair give your doctor an air
I'm hurt, but the choice that you made is an obvious one
For a girl who needs care
I do hope that he makes you well
Say, is there any cure for Hell
Achoo - one size fits everyone
Achoo - one breath, the deed has been done
Sing, Ile de France and everywhere
You can't ignore that sort of air
Achoo - one size fits everyone
Achoo - one breath, the deed has been done

So, open wide, open wide and say, open wide and say goodbye, you'll be ok

Achoo - he's gonna whisk you away
Achoo - he's gonna make you ok

    General CommentIf Bowie had written this with his cut & paste method, I would not be suprised - I have not got a clue what it's about

    General CommentI think it's about a girl leaving for a man who is more stable or well off and watching it happen and not being able to do anything about it. Maybe achoo references the feeling of needing to sneeze and not being able to stop it and the actual achoo is when the deed has been done and homie got ditched.

    General CommentIt's about a chick who left "him" for her doctor. He's passive aggressively saying it's cool because she's messed up and needs a man who can fix her... a doctor who will whisk her away and make her ok.

    Side thought is that it's about one of them and she asked him not to write a song about it.
