Dum Dum Boys

This song is by Iggy Pop and appears on the album The Idiot (1977).

What happened to Zeke?
He's dead on Jones, man
How about Dave?
O.D'd on alcohol

Oh, what's Rock doing?
Oh, he's living with his mother
What about James?
He's gone straight


Well things have been tough without the Dum Dum Boys
I can't seem to speak the language
I remember how they used to stare at the ground

They looked as if they put the whole world, looked as if they put the whole world down

The first time I met the Dum Dum Boys
I was fascinated
They just stood in front of the old drug store

I was most impressed. No one else was impressed, not at all

And we'd sing: "Da-da-da-da-da-da-dum dum day"

Well, where are you now my Dum Dum Boys?
Hey, are you alive or dead?
Have you left me the last of the Dum Dum days?

And then the sun goes down. And then the boys broke down

People said we were negative
They said we'd take but we would never give

But we'd sing: "Da-da-da-da-da-da dum dum day"
We'd sing: "Da-da-da-da-da-da dum dum day"
We'd sing: "Da-da-da-da-da-da dum dum day"
Dum dum day

Well, now I'm looking for the Dum Dum Boys. Well, where are you now we need your noise

Now I'm looking for the Dum Dum Boys. The walls close in and I need some noise
