rubber band lyrics – david bowie

rubber band
there’s a rubber band that plays tunes out of tune
in the library garden sunday afternoon
while a little chappie waves a golden wand

rubber band
in 1910 i was so handsome and so strong
my moustache was stiffly waxed and one foot long

and i loved a girl while you played teatime tunes

dear rubber band, you’re playing my tunes out of tune, oh

rubber band, won’t you play a haunting theme again to me

while i eat my scones and drink my cup
of tea

the sun is warm but it’s a lonely afternoon
oh, play that theme

rubber band
how i wish that i could join your rubber band
we could play in lively parks throughout the land
and one sunday afternoon i’d find my love

rubber band
in ’14-’18 war i went to sea
thought my sunday love was waiting home for me

and now she’s married to the leader of the band, oh
[spoken]
oh sob: i hope you break your baton
