Lyrics of Suffragette City

Hey man, oh leave me alone you know
Hey man, oh henry, get off the phone, I gotta
Hey man, I gotta straighten my face
This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place

Hey man, my schoolday's insane
Hey man, my work's down the drain
Hey man, well she's a total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it but she... and then she...

Oh don't lean on me man, 'cause you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight... she's all right

Hey man, ah Henry, don't be unkind, go away
Hey man, I can't take you this time, no way
Hey man, droogie don't crash here
There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes

Oh don't lean on me man, 'cause you can't afford the ticket
I'm back on suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight... she's all right

Oh hit me!

Oh don't lean on me man, 'cause you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Don't lean on me man, 'cause you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
'Cause you ain't got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight... she's all right

A suffragette city, a suffragette city
I'm back on suffragette city, I'm back on suffragette city
Ooo, sufraggete city, ooo, suffragette city
Oooh-how, sufragette city, oooh-how, sufragette,

Ohhh, wham bam thank you maam!
A suffragette city, a suffragette city
Quite all right
A suffragette city
Too fine
A suffragette city, ooh, a sufragette city
Oh, my sufragette city, oh my suffragette city
Oh, suffragette
Suffragette!

“'Suffragette City'” is a single by David Bowie.

Recorded towards the end of the 'Ziggy Stardust' sessions, “Suffragette City” is a trademark piece of 1970s Bowie glam, with a piano riff heavily influenced by Little Richard, a lyrical reference to the film 'A Clockwork Orange' (the word “droogie”) and the sing-along hook 'Wham bam thank you ma'am!”, and an influence on the punk rock movement that came several years after the song's release. The song has become a fixture of Bowie’s live shows, and one of his best known album cuts.

In 1976, it was issued as a single to promote the 'Changesonebowie' compilation in the UK, with the US single edit of “Stay” on the B-side. The single failed to chart.
