Yassassin (Turkish For Long Live) Lyrics

by David Bowie

[CHORUS]
Yassassin - I'm not a moody guy
Yassassin - I walk without a sound
Yassassin -
Just a working man, no judge of men
Yassassin -
But such a life I've never known

We came from the farmlands
To live in this city
We walked proud and lustful
In this resonant world
You want to fight
But I don't want to leave
Or drift away

[CHORUS]

Look at this - no second glances
Look at this - no value of love
Look at this - just sun and steel
Look at this - then look at us

If there's someone in charge
Then listen to me
Don't say nothing's wrong
'Cause I've got a love
And she's afeared
You want to fight
But I don't want to leave
Or drift away

[CHORUS]

Yassassin, Yassassin, Yassassin
