David Bowie — Amlapura lyrics

(Bowie/Gabrels)

Hey-hey it's the tall sail on
On a beach reach for Java
Make way for to Java
Watching for Boogies
Hey-hey it's a dreaming
I would burn you if you should die
Hey-hey I would burn too
If you should lie upon that bamboo pyre
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/david-bowie-amlapura-lyrics.html ]
CHORUS
I dream of Amlapura
Never saw in all my life
a more shining jewel
I dream of Amlapura
Of an ocean or dream of a princess
in stone

Hey-hey golden roses around
A rajah's mouth
Hey-hey all the dead children
buried standing
A flying Dutchman
Smoking gun and spice wind

CHORUS
