criminal world lyrics – david bowie

you never told me of your other faces
you were the widow of a wild cat
and now i know about your special kisses
and i know you know where that’s at
i guess i recognise your destination
i think i see beneath your make-up
what you want is so separation
this is no ordinary
this is no ordinary

(oh, oh, oh)
what a criminal world
the boys are like baby-faced girls
what a criminal girl
she’ll show you where to shoot your gun
what a typical mother’s son
the only thing that she enjoys
is a criminal world
where the girls are like baby-faced boys

you’ve got a very heavy reputation
but no-one knows about your low-life
i know a way to find a situation
and hold a candle to your high-life disguise
you caught me kneeling at your sister’s door
that was no ordinary stick-up
i’m well aware just what you’re looking for
i am no ordinary
i am no ordinary

(oh, oh, oh)
what a criminal world
the boys are like baby-faced boys
what a criminal girl
she’ll show you where to shoot your gun
what a typical mother’s son
the only thing that she enjoys
is a criminal world
where the girls are like baby-faced boys
baby-faced boys
baby-face
what a criminal world
what a criminal
criminal
what a criminal world
what a criminal
criminal
