David Bowie "Uncle Arthur" lyrics

Translation to:fr

Uncle Arthur

Strikes the bell for 5 o'clock, Uncle Arthur closes shopScrews the tops on all the bottles, turns the lights out, locks it upClimbs across his bike and he's awayCycles past the gasworks, past the river, down the high streetBack to mother, it's another empty day

Uncle Arthur likes his mommyUncle Arthur still reads comicsUncle Arthur follows Batman

Round and round the rumours fly, how he ran away from MumOn his 32nd birthday, told her that he'd found a chum Mother cried and raved and yelled and fussedArthur left her no illusion, brought the girl round, save confusionSally was the real thing, not just lust

Uncle Arthur vanished quicklyUncle Arthur and his new brideUncle Arthur follows SallyRound and round goes Arthur's head, hasn't eaten well for daysLittle Sally may be lovely, but cooking leaves her in a maze

Uncle Arthur packed his bags and fledBack to mother, all's forgiven, serving in the family shop

He gets his pocket money, he's well fedUncle Arthur past the gasworksUncle Arthur past the riverUncle Arthur down the high streetUncle Arthur follows mother
