Words and music by David Bowie and James Osterberg

(Lust for life x 3)

Here comes Johnny in again

With liquor and drugs

And a flash machine

He's gonna do another strip tease

Ah, hey man, where'd ya get that lotion?

I've been hurting since I bought the gimmick

About something called love

Yeah, something called love

Well, that's like hypnotising chickens

I'm just a modern guy

Huh, of course, I've had it in the ear before

I have a lust for life

Cause I've a lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

Lust for life

Lust for life

I'm worth a million in prizes

With my torture film

Drive a GTO

I wear a uniform

On a government loan

I'm worth a million in prizes

Yeah, I'm through with sleeping on the sidewalk

No more beating my brains

No more beating my brains

With liquor and drugs

With liquor and drugs

Ooh, I'm just a modern guy

Huh, of course, I've had it in the ear before

And I've a lust for life (lust for life)

Cause I've a lust for life (lust for life)

A lust for life (ooh)

A lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

I got a lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

Ah a lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

Lust for life

Lust for life

I'm just a modern guy

Huh, of course, I've had it in the ear before

And I've a lust for life (lust for life)

Cause I've a lust for life (lust for life)

A lust for life (ooh)

Lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

Lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

I got a lust for life

Lust for life (ooh)

I got a lust for life

A lust for life
