David Bowie - "Tumble Twirl" lyrics

Ive seen the city

I took the next flight

For borneo

They say its pretty

I like the t-shirts
In borneo

Some wear bob marley

Others in playboy

Or duvalier
Make the last plane come

Let me rise through the cloudy above
With a book on borneo

Strangers come and go
Its such a waste of time

Problems far behind

Another day

But even in springtime

Its a rich slice of life

So send me a letter

Ill reply with a broken spear

That dusky mulatto
In nylons and tattoos

Hot juice in coke bottles

We dance in the sand

Well, they twirl and they tumble
Yes, they twirl and they tumble

Well, Ill twirl and Ill tumble

Ive been to leons

Hes got nine daughters

And a stereo

They say that leon

Watches from the tree tops
In borneo

When the road is mud
Everything stops with a thud

Thats the way it goes down yonder in borneo

Far beneath his mansion

Theres an open drain

Sending all the sewage down the hill

No one hesitates

But when the general shows movies

To sneak from the jungle

They laugh and they mumble

Enjoying the show
And that dusky mulatto

Hot juice in coke bottles

In blue jeans and tattoos
Well, they twirl and they tumble

Yes, they twirl and they tumble
Well, Ill twirl and Ill tumble

I like the free world

They say its pretty
This time of year

They tumble and twirl

They tumble and twirl

Ill tumble and twirl

They twirl and they tumble

They twirl and they tumble

I like the free world

I like the free world

They say its pretty

This time of year

This time of year

Tumble and tumble

I like the free world
