Sell Me A Coat Lyrics

by David Bowie

La la la la la la, la la la la la la la
A winter's day, a bitter snowflake on my face
My summer girl takes little backward steps away
Jack Frost took her hand and left me, Jack Frost ain't so coolCHORUS
Sell me a coat with buttons of silver Sell me a coat that's red or gold
Sell me a coat with little patch pockets Sell me a coat 'cause I feel cold
And when she smiles, the ice forgets to melt away
Not like before, her smile was warming yesterday
See the trees like silver candy, feel my icy handCHORUS
See my eyes, my window paneSee my tears like gentle rain
That's the memory of a summer dayCHORUS (twice)La la la la la la (repeat)
