E por falar em trocadilhos com nomes de álbuns...

ESTROFES Diamond Dogs (1974)

REBEL REBEL you’d always be
CANDIDATE to FUTURE LEGEND
of days to be
Bowie, please
ROCK n’ ROLL WITH ME
Forever

Without you WE ARE THE DEAD
Hearing the CHANT OF THE EVER CIRCLING SKELETAL FAMILY
Forever
Bitten by DIAMOND DOGS
In Hell of mediocrity

ESTROFES Young Americans (1975)

JOHN, I’M ONLY DANCING
To this music
It’s pure FASCINATION
a bliss
divine, celestial and I’m feeling
SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME

CAN YOU HEAR ME?
WHO CAN I BE NOW?
Someone who takes a bow
Not Sheila, that one was yet to be
From now
IT’S GONNA BE ME
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

ESTROFES Station to Station (1976)

Oh WILD IS THE WIND
On these GOLDEN DAYS
We could fly for miles
With just a WORD ON A WING

Just STAY
We could go from
STATION TO STATION
Without invitation
That's what we may
When WILD IS THE WIND
We could just STAY

ESTROFES Heroes (1977)

THE SECRET LIFE OF ARABIA
Lies in ABDULMAJID
Where JOE, THE LION
And me
shall meet

THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
SONS OF THE SILENT AGE
turning a history page
Laying in a MOSS GARDEN
And feast

ESTROFES Low (1977)


My SPEED OF LIFE
Is BREAKING GLASS
WHAT IN THE WORLD
Would BE MY WIFE

A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN
Maybe WARSZAWA
With its jewish WEEPING WALL
Livin' in the SUBTERRANEANS
ALWAYS CRASHING IN THE SAME CAR

Are we ALL SAINTS?
SOME ARE

ESTROFES Scary Monsters (1980)


SCREAM LIKE A BABY
‘till KINGDOM COME
ASHES TO ASHES in grief, maybe
BECAUSE YOU’RE YOUNG

In this SPACE ODDITY
There’r SCARY MONSTERS
Run UP THE HILL BACKWARDS
In serenity

E já viste o quão curiosa é a letra de Station to Station, sobretudo com a frase "Wild is the wind", música da Nina Simone que mais tarde Bowie acabaria por interpretar... (acabar com reticências foi bonito não foi, foi quase poético...)
