Repetition

This song is by David Bowie and appears on the album Lodger (1979).

This song has been covered by Au Pairs under the title "Repetition".
Johnny is a man
And he's bigger than you
But his overheads are high
And he looks straight through you
When you ask him how the kids are

He'll get home around seven
'Cause the Chevy's real old
And he could have had a Cadillac
If the school had taught him right
And he could have married Anne
With the blue silk blouse

And the food is on the table
But the food is cold
Don't hit her

"Can't you even cook?
What's the good of me working
When you can't damn cook?"
Well Johnny is a man
And he's bigger than her
I guess the bruises won't show
If she wears long sleeves
But the space in her eyes
Shows through

And he could have married Anne
With the blue silk blouse
He could have married Anne
With the blue silk blouse

Shows through
Shows through
Shows through
