David Bowie - "Battle for Britain" lyrics

My my, but time do fly

When its in another pair of hands

And a loser I will be

For Ive never been a winner

In my life

I used the sucker pills

And pity for the self

Though its the animal in me

But Id rather be a beggar man

On the shelf

Dont be so forlorn
Its just the payoff

Its the rain before the storm

On a better day

Ill take you by the hand

And lead you thru the doors

Dont you let my letter

Get you down

My my, but time do fly

When its in another pair of pants

And illusion I will be

For Ive never been a sinner

La-de-dah
