"Repetition" as written by and David Bowie....
Johnny is a man
And he’s bigger than you
But his overheads are high
And he looks straight through you when you ask him how the kids are

He’ll get home around 7
Cause the car is real old
And he could have a Cadillac
If the school had taught him right

And he could have married Anne in a blue silk blouse

And the food is on the table
But the food is cold
(Don’t hit her)
Oh can’t you even cook
What’s the good of him working if you can’t damn cook?

Well Johnny is a man
And he’s bigger than her
I guess the bruises won’t show
If she wears long sleeves
But the space in her eyes shows through
It shows through

Could have married Anne in a blue silk blouse
It shows through
