# He could kill 'em by smiling He could leave 'em to hang

# Came on so loaded man, white skin and snow white tan

# So where were the Spiders?

# While the fly tried to break our balls

# Just the beer light to guide us

# So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

# Oh yeah

# Ziggy played for time jiving us that we were voodoo

# The kids were just crass he was the nazz

# With God-given ass

# But he took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

# Making love with his ego, oh yeah

# Ziggy sucked up into his mind Ah!

# Like a leper messiah When the kids had killed the man

# I had to break up the band

# Oh yeah

# Ooooooo

# Ooooooo

# Now Ziggy played...

#..guita-a-r-r-r! #


"Watch That Man"

# Shakey threw a party that lasted all night

# Everybody drank a lot of something nice

# There was an old-fashioned band of married men

# Looking up to me for encouragement it was so-so

# The ladies looked bad but the music was sad

# No-one took their eyes off Lorraine She shimmered and the strolled like a Chicago moll

# Her feathers looked better and better - it was so-so

# Yeah! I began to unfreeze When the Reverend Alabaster danced on his knees

# Yeah! Slam! So it wasn't a game Cracking all the mirrors in shame

# Watch that man! Oh honey watch that man

# He talks like a jerk but he could eat you with a fork and spoon

# Watch that man! Oh honey watch that man

# Walks like a jerk But he's only taking care of the room

# Though he must be in tune

# Yeah

# A Benny Goodman fan painted holes in his hands

# So Shakey hung him up to dry The pundits were jokin' the manholes were smokin'

# And every bottle battled with the reason why

# The girl on the phone wouldn't leave me alone

# A throwback from someone's LP A lemon in a bag played the Tiger Rag
