(David Bowie)

No one can blame you
For walking away
Too much rejection
No love injection
Life can be easy
It's not always swell
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl
'Cause it hurts like hell (echo)
But down in the underground
(oh oh oh oh oh)
You'll find someone true
(down underground)
Down in the underground
(oh oh oh oh oh)
A land serene (oh oh oh oh)
A crystal moon, ah, ah

It's only forever
Not long at all
Lost and lonely
That's underground
Underground

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
(heard about a place today)
I, I'm underground
(nothing never hurts again)
Heard about a place today
(daddy, get me out of here)
Where nothing never hurts again
(wanna go underground)
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
(wanna go underground)
I, I'm underground
(get me underground)
Sister, sister, please take me down
(daddy, get me out of here)
I, I'm underground
(wanna go underground)
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here

No one can blame you
For walking away
Too much rejection
No love injection
But down in the underground
(oh oh oh oh oh)
You'll find someone true (down underground)
Down in the underground (oh oh oh oh oh)
A land serene (oh oh oh oh)
A crystal moon, ah, ah

It's only (echo)
It's only forever
It's not long at all
Lost and lonely
That's underground
Underground

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
Heard about a place today
(heard about a place today)
Nothing never hurts again (nothing never hurts again)
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
(daddy, get me out of here)
I'm, I'm underground
(wanna go underground)
Sister, sister, please take me down
(wanna go underground)
I'm, I'm underground
(get me underground)
Daddy, daddy, get me out

Wanna live underground
Wanna live underground (underground)
Wanna live underground
Wanna live underground (underground)
Wanna live underground
Wanna live underground
(wanna live underground) (x3)

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here
(get me underground, now get me underground)
I'm, I'm underground
(get me underground, now get me underground))
Sister, sister please take me down (now get me
underground)
I'm, I'm underground (now get me underground)
I, I'm underground (now get me underground)
I, I'm underground (now get me underground)
Daddy, daddy, get me (heard about a place today, where
nothing never hurts again) (x2)

(Heard about a place today, wanna live underground)
(x2)

Wanna live underground (heard about a place today,
wanna live, wanna live underground) (x3)

Sister, sister, take me down (heard about a place today,
wanna live, wanna live underground) (x2)
