Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo
Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo
Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo

You've got your mother in a whirl
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's go out tonight

You like me and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast

They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so

''Don't ya?''
Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo

You've got your mother in a whirl 'cause she's
Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's stay out tonight

You like me and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast

They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so

''Don't ya?''
Uh!
Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo
Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo-doo

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so
'''Don't ya?'''

You've torn your dress, your face is a mess
You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You've got your transmission and your live wire
You got your cue line and a handful of ludes
You wanna be there when they count up the dues
And I love your dress
You're a juvenile success
Because your face is a mess
So how could they know?
I said, how could they know?

So what you wanna know?
Calamity's child, chi-chile, chi-chile
Where'd you wanna go?
What can I do for you? Looks like you've been there too
'Cause you've torn your dress
And your face is a mess
Ooh, your face is a mess
Ooh, ooh, so how could they know?
Eh, eh, how could they know?
Eh, eh

Great song. Great artist. Sucko-barfo rendition.
Amen :frustrated:
This is the very best thing about Charlie's Angels Full Throttle. And it sucks.
I'm surprised Bowie released this, I personally think it's below his normal standard of fineness, and I love the Thin White Duke.... :stupid: :ask:
More (synth) cowbell! I gotta say I like the original rendition better.
Marginal just seems so kind.
Lounge-lizard mix?
Man, that sounds like synth-cowbell in there...weird, and unlikable.
Is that really David Bowie singing? I think he needs to have those nodules taken off his vocal cords.

Thank goodness I'm not the only one that feels this is probably the worst version done of this song.. :mrgreen:

It's different, it's interesting, it's not as good as the original. I'm glad I heard it but I don't care if I hear it again.

:roll: Rats. I liked the beginning. Oh well.

Hmmmmmm.
It's different, it's interesting, it's not as good as the original. I'm glad I heard it but I don't care if I hear it again.

A great song, but NOT the best cover. The single version from the Sound and Vision compilation is much better.
A cover? Isn't this David Bowie doing a David Bowie song? I may be confused but it sounds like him.

Don't like this version as much as the original
