Day In Day Out (Single Version) Lyrics

by David Bowie

Day in, day out
Stay in, fade out
Day in
Day out

She was born in a handbag
Love left on a doorstep
What she lacks is a backup
Nothing seems to make a dent

Gonna find her some money honey
Try to pay her rent
That's the kind of protection
What everyone is shouting about, hey, hey

Day in, day out
Stay in, fade out
Day in
Day out

First thing she learns is she's a citizen
Some things they turn out right
When you're under the U.S.A.
Someone rings a bell and it's all over
She's going out her way
Stealing for that one good rush

Day in, day out
Stay in, fade out

She could use a little money
She's hangin' on his arms like a cheap suit
She's got no money, honey
She's on the other side
Oh, come on, little baby
Late night, big town, police shake down

Day in, day out
Stay in, fade out
Day in

She's got a ticket to nowhere
She's gonna take a train ride
Nobody knows her or knows her name
She's in the pocket of a home boy

Oh, she's gonna take her a shotgun pow
Spin the grail spin the drug
She's gonna make them well aware
She's an angry gal

Day in, day out
Stay in, fade out
You fade out
Fade out
You fade out
