"Betty Wrong" as written by and David/gabrels Bowie....
Till the sun blisters and sprays
And every lamb ceases to graze
When the kiss of the comb
Tears my face from the bone

I'll be your light
When the shadows fall down the wall
Then life will be done
And it just won't matter at all

I was carved from a hand
Nurtured on grime, goodwill and screams
Now your breath fills my step
Now there is you till life is gone

I'll be your light
When the shadows fall down the wall
Then life will be done
And it just won't matter at all

I'll roll your ball
Till the stars can't make me cry
Then life will be done
And it just won't matter at all
Not at all
When the kiss of the comb
Tears my face

    My InterpretationMethinks Mr. Bowie is singing about love in times of nuclear war. The images -- Till the sun blisters and sprays, and every lamb ceases to graze. When the kiss of the comb tears my face from the bone -- all suggest the effects of a nuclear catastrophe. The Gentleman is saying to the lady in his life that he will love her until a nuclear disaster wipes out all life -- including the lives of him and his sweetheart
