Gardenia
by Iggy Pop

Gardenia
Where are you?
Black goddess in a shabby raincoat
Where are you tonight?
Cheap purple baby-doll dress
A gardenia in your hair
Much taller and stronger than me
A forbidden dream, a dream, a dream

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Gardenia
Where are you, tonight?
The streets were your home
Now where do you roam?
Your hourglass ass
And your powerful back
Your slant devil eyes
And the ditch down your spine
Deep ass, deep ass

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

We lay in the darkness
Then she turned the lights on
I saw a dangerous habit
When she turned the lights on
There's always a catch
In the darkness when you
When you turn the lights on
There's always a catch
Oh well, oh well, oh well, oh well

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Alone in the cheapo motel
By the highway to hell
America's greatest living poet
Was ogling you all night
You should be wearing the finest gown
But here you are now
Gas, food, lodging, poverty, misery
And Gardenia
You could be burned at the stake
For all your mistakes, mistakes, mistakes

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Hey! Turn the lights on again
Alright hey out there, hi
Look, if I was hitchhikin' would you fuckin' pick me up?
'Cause I'm nothin' but a fuckin' passenger
Can I get what? The passenger? Can I fuckin' do it?

Seguramente ni Bowie y Reed llegaron a imaginar que Iggy los sobreviviría...
