(D.Bowie/R.Gabrels)

I can't read and I can't write down
I don't know a book from countdown
I don't care which shadow gets me
All I've got is someone's face

Money goes to money heaven
Bodies go to body hell
I just cough,
catch the chase
Switch the channel
watch the police car

CHORUS
I can't read shit anymore
I just sit back and ignore
I just can't get it right,
can't get it right
I can't read shit
I can't read shit

When you see a famous smile
No matter where you run your mile
To be right in that photograph
Andy where's my fifteen minutes
