What happened to Zeke?
He's dead on Jones, man
How about Dave?
O.D'd on alcohol

Oh, what's Rock doing?
Oh, he's living with his mother
What about James?
He's gone straight

Well, things have been tough
Without the Dum Dum Boys
I can't seem to speak the language
I remember how they
Used to stare at the ground

They looked as if they
Put the whole world
Looked as if they put
The whole world down

The first time I met the Dum Dum Boys
I was fascinated
They just stood in front of the old drug store
I was most impressed
No one else was impressed, not at all

And we'd sing
Da, da, da, da, da
Dum, dum day

Well, where are you now my Dum Dum Boys?
Are you alive or dead?
Have you left me the last of the Dum Dum daze?
And then the sun goes down
And then the boys broke down

People said we were negative
They said we would take but we would never give

But we'd sing
Da, da, da, da, da, da
Dum, dum, day

We'd sing
Da, da, da, da, da, da
And hope it would pay

We'd sing
Da, da, da, da, da
[Incomprehensible]
Dum, dum day

Well now, I'm looking for the Dum Dum Boys
Hey, where are you now when I need your noise?

Now, I'm looking for the Dum Dum Boys
The walls close in and I need some noise

Songwriters
BOWIE, DAVID/POP, IGGY /
