sell me a coat lyrics – 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 cool

[chorus]
sell me a coat with b*ttons 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 hand

[chorus]
see my eyes, my window pane
see my tears like gentle rain
that’s a memory of the summer day

[chorus (twice)]
la la la la la la [repeat]
