Maid of Bond Street, David Bowie.

Available on any of a number of compilations of His early works, I have

"London Boy."

The words go by pretty quickly in some places. Even if I can't make out the

words, I've put in nonsense syllables that approximate them.

 

E F#m G

This girl is made of lipstick, Powder and paint,

C Am F G

Sees the pictures of herself, every magazine on every shelf.

E F#m G

This girl is Maid of Bond Street, hailing cabs,

C Am F G

Lunches with executives, gleaming teeth, sipaparatives (thats what the words

sound like, I have no

idea what they really are.)

 

E D

This girl is a lonely girl

E D

Takes the train from Banning Turn(?) to Oxford Turn(?)

E D

She reads the daily news but passengers

C Am F G

Don't smile at her, oh no, don't smile at her.

 

E F#m G

This girl is made of loneliness, a broken heart

C Am F G

For the boy that she once knew doesn't want to know her anymore.

 

E D

And this girl is a lonely girl,

E D

Everything she wants is hers but she can't make it

E D

With the boy she really wants to be with

C Am F G

All the time, to love all the time.

 

E F#m G

This boy is made of envy, jealosy

C Am F G

He doesn't have a limosine, really wants to be a star himself.

 

E G A D G

And this girl, her world is made of flashlights and film

G A D G

Her cares are scratched on the cutting room floor

G C F G

And Maid of Bond Street, ride 'round in chauffeured cars

G C F G

Maid of Bond Street, picture clothes, eyes of stars

G C F G

Maid of Bond Street, children have love affairs

G C (tacet)

Maid of Bond Street, children have worldly cares.

 

FCCCFG.

 

Ending on the G works, and I haven't figured out the last little bit. So

there it is.
