"All The Young Dudes" as written by and David Bowie....
Billy rapped all night 'bout his suicide
How he'd kick it in the head when he was 25
Don't wanna stay alive when you're 25

Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars
Freddy's got spots from ripping off stars from his face
Funky little boat race
The television man is crazy
Saying we're juvenile delinquent wrecks
Man I need a TV when I've got T. Rex
Hey brother you guessed I'm a dude

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

Now Jimmy looking sweet though he dresses like a queen
He can kick like a mule
It's a real mean team
We can love
Oh we can love
And my brother's back at home
With his Beatles and his Stones
We never got if off on that revolution stuff
What a drag
Too many snags
Well I drunk a lot of wine
And I'm feeling fine
Gonna race some cat to bed
Is this concrete all around
Or is it in my head
Oh brother you guessed I'm a dude

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

    General CommentThis is actually considered a gay anthem, but Bruce didn't even write this song. He remade it from some other band.

    General CommentI guess if you consider Glam rock homosexual....but i imagine a lot of heterosexuals still listen to Kiss and Bowie..

    But of course you would have to assume that all gays are cross dressers and clearly have sex with women.

    Anyways, this song was written by David Bowie for the Mott the Hoople band in an attempt to save it. Bruce Likes bowie, Bruce sings bowie. Everything still makes sense.
