David Bowie – Velvet Goldmine lyrics

You got crazy legs,
You got amazin' head
You got rings on your fingers
And your hair's hot red
You got the width of my tongue
Name on the sun
I clutch you close to my breast
Cause you're the only one,
Who uses school to pleasure
You make me act real gone,
You make me troll along
I had to ravish your capsule,
Suck you dry
Feel the teeth in your bones,
Heal ya head with my own
Why if I don't have you whole,
Is that your final love?
Here all together

Velvet goldmine,
You stroke me like the rain
Snake it, take it,
Panther princess you must stay
Velvet goldmine,
Naked on your chain
I'll be your king volcano right for you
Again and again
My velvet goldmine
You're my taste, my trip,
I'll be your master zip
I'll chop your hair off for kicks,
You'll make me jump to my feet
So you'll give me your hand,
Give me your sound
Let my sea wash your face,
I'm falling, I can't stand
Oooh! Clutch your makeup!

Oh! Shoot you down, bang bang

(hum) Velvet Goldmine (repeat)
