[Verse 1]
Hey man, oh leave me alone you know
Hey man, oh Henry, get off the phone, I gotta
Hey man, I gotta straighten my face
This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place
Hey man, my schooldays insane, I said
Hey man, my work's down the drain, I said
Hey man, well she's a total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it but she, but then she

[Chorus]
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you can't afford the ticket
Back from Suffragette City
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
Back know my Suffragette City
Is outta sight
She's all right

[Verse 2]
Hey man, Henry, don't be unkind
Hey man, I can't take you this time, no way
Hey man, droogie don't crash here
There's only room for one and here she comes, she comes

[Chorus]
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you can't afford the ticket
Back from Suffragette City
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City
She's outta sight
She's all right

Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you can't afford the ticket
Back from Suffragette City
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City
She's outta sight
She's all right

[Outro]
A Suffragette City, a Suffragette City
I'm back on Suffragette City, I'm back on Suffragette City
Ooo, Suffraggete city, ooo, Suffragette City
Oooh-how, Suffragette City, oooh-how, Suffragette City, oooh-how
Suffragette
Ohhh, wham bam, thank you Ma'am!
A Suffragette City, a Suffragette City
Quite all right
A Suffragette City
Too fine
A Suffragette City, ooh, a Suffragette City
Oh, my Suffragette City, oh my Suffragette City
Oh, Suffragette
Suffragette!

[Spoken Word: David Bowie]
Good night. Thank you

[Audience Applause]

[Spoken Word: Announcer]
You hear the applause
And that's a bid for David Bowie to come back on
And they are coming back on
We're at the Santa Monica Civic in 1972
First of two performances in town
They're back on stage
They'll perform some more
That's standing ovation
