David Bowie - "Take My Tip" lyrics

You think you're gonna please her
So you walk right up and tease her
But she walks right on by
You're scared to walk beside her
'Cause you're playing with the spider who possess the sky
She got the green backs, my-oh-my
You gotta act tall, think big, if you wanna make a mark in her book
Gotta get ahead, get a car, fancy clothes
Or she'll throw you right off her hook
Gonna make like a shark to be free
Take my tip- get on out
Here's the news- you are but one fish in her back garden scene
Take my tip- get on out
Something bad on your mind

Before she'll put you right up on her rack
With some others in mind
You can't give all you got to take something back
Take my tip- get on out
Take my tip- get on out
But she walks right on by
You think you're gonna please her

So you walk right up and tease her
You're scared to walk beside her
'Cause you're playing with the tiger who possess the sky
She got the green backs, my-oh-my
You gotta act tall, think big, if you wanna make a mark in her book
Gotta get ahead, get a car, fancy clothes
Here's the news- you are but one fish in her back garden scene
Or she'll throw you right off her hook
Gonna make like a shark to be free
Something bad on your mind
Get it off, take my tip

Get it off, take my tip
You can't give all you have to take something back
Before she'll put you right up on the rack
Take my tip- get on out
With some others in mind
Take my tip- get on out
Take my tip- get on out
Take my tip- get on out
