The Jean Genie [Bowie]

[Covers]

 

Lyrics

a small jean genie snuck off to the city
strung out on lasers and slash back plazas
ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
talking bout monroe and walking on snow white
new york's a go-go and everything tastes right
poor little greenie

the jean genie lives on his back
the jean genie loves chimney stacks
he's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
jean genie let yourself go!

sits like a man but smiles like a reptile
she loves him, she loves him but just for a short while
she'll scratch in the sand, won't let go his hand
he says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition
and keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear
poor little greenie

the jean genie lives on his back
the jean genie loves chimney stacks
he's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
jean genie let yourself go!

he's so simple minded he can't drive his module
he bites on the neon and sleeps in the capsule
loves to be loved, loves to be loved

the jean genie lives on his back
the jean genie loves chimney stacks
he's outrageous, he screams and and bawls
jean genie let yourself go!
