"Like A Rocket Man" as written by and David Bowie....
Little Wendy Cocaine stumbles up the hill to pain
Nothing stops the go-to girl
Nothing takes the place of taking aim

Little Wendy's out there shaking hips & cuckoo eyes
Crazy drives that dizzy crowd
Moonlight strokes the highlights in her hair

She sells & moves & finds my hand
& pulls me down & close
So I can hardly stand

As I lay like dead for her
I'm fed into my head I'm led
Oh, I am Sam

I'm crawling from the window, crawling down the wall
I'm happy, screaming, yes I am

I'm jumping on her daisy chain
I'm speeding through the dancehall like a rocket man

Now I wish today that yesterday was just tomorrow
& I could squeeze her grubby hand
Knowing that I never paid her for a gram

She's a drunken doxy off her trolly
Sent before her time into this poxy world

She's not fit for anything but dealing it
While heaven sings, I have this girl

She's got me eating rice & beans
I have no shape nor color
I'm God's lonely man

I don't want to die but I don't want to live
I'm speeding like a rocket man

Like a rocket man
Like a rocket man
Like a rocket man
