"1984" as written by and David Bowie....
1984

Someday they won't let you, now you must agree
The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free
You've read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on TV
Beware the savage jaw
In 1984

They'll split your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air
And tell that you're eighty, but brother, you won't care
You'll be shooting up on everything, tomorrow's never there
Beware the savage jaw
In 1984

(Come see, come see, remember me)
I played out an all night movie role
You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled
In 1984 (who could ask for more)
1984 (who could ask for more)
(More)

I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride
I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a side
I'm looking for the treason that I knew in '65
Beware the savage jaw
In 1984

(Come see, come see, remember me)
I played out an all night movie role
You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled
In 1984 (who could ask for more)
1984 (who could ask for more)
(More)

1984 1984 (more)
1984 1984 (more)

    Lyric Correction(1984...)

    Someday, they won't let you, now you must agree;
    The times, they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free...
    You read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on TV;
    Beware the Savage Jaw in 1984...

    They'll split your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air;
    They'll tell you that you're eighty, and really you won't care...
    You'll be shooting up on everything, tomorrow's never there;
    Beware the Savage Jaw in 1984...

    (Come see, come see, remember me...)
    I played in an all night movie role;
    Yeah, you said it would last, but I guess we've enrolled in 1984... (Who could ask for more?)
    1984... (Who could ask for more?)

    I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride;
    I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a sign...
    I'm looking for a treason that I knew in '65;
    Beware the Savage Jaw in 1984...

    (Come see, come see, remember me...)
    I played in an all night movie role;
    Yeah, you said it would last, but I guess we've enrolled in 1984... (Who could ask for more?)
    1984... (Who could ask for more?)
    More...
    1984, 1984...
    Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh...
    Na, na, na, na, na, na, 1984...
    1984, 1984...
    Oh... oh, oh, oh, 1984...
