CAR HORNS AND TRAFFIC

WHISTLES FROM CROWD

HORNS BLARE:

David!

I've got a telex here for Tony from Jerry. I don't know if you've seen it at all.

I'd like to see it.

- It's a very long involved one.

- All right. OK.

I'll read it...

It's all in code.

I didn't know we did business in code.

Can't understand a word of this.

TUNES PIANO:

CAR HORNS TOO:

ANNOUNCER:
Ladies and gentlemen - straight from his fantastically successful world tour,

including the United States of America, Japan. Now, his home country.

For the last time - David Bowie!

CHEERING:

AUDIENCE CLAPS ALONG TO ORGAN MUSIC

My mother saw her first spaceship in that.

- What did you say to me? - My mother saw her

first spaceship. - Really? - She says, yeah.

- Angie!

- Darling, I came to say good luck.

- Oh, you look beautiful, darling. I love that.

- Merci.

- So anyway, are you all right?

- Yeah.

- There's an awful lot of Rolls-Royces out there, darling.

- Really?

- Limousines. Incidents occurring.

- Oh!

Tony loved it, he made the driver go by slowly.

- Just people... Being surrounded and recognised and fans going nuts.

- What people?

I don't know. I just saw the Rolls-Royces lined up. It's fabulous!

Ah, you guys, you look very nice and I just came to say hello.

- Bon, je reviendrai.

- Who did your make-up?

- I did. - Did you? - Why? -

Interesting. - It is interesting.

- It's the best one you've done if I may say so.

- It's cos I'm watching you, you see. I'm learning from you.

Do you like the lines around the lips?

No, I don't like and she knows that.

But I like the idea of the blue lines with the pink lipstick. That's quite good.

- You see how they pick on me and make me feel terrible?

- You're a girl. What do you know about make-up?

Exactly! That's what I say all the time(!)

Make-up for a night out on the town, with the boys.

Go on, star! Go on.

All right. I'll see you later. Bye-bye.
