Alabama Song
David Bowie Lyrics


Oh, show me the way to the next whiskey bar
Oh, don't ask why, no, don't ask why
For we must find the next whiskey bar

Or if we don't find the next whiskey bar
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey or you know why

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey or you know why

Oh, show us the way to the next little dollar
Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
For we must find the next little dollar

Or if we don't find the next little dollar
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have dollar or you know why

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have dollar or you know why

Oh, show us the way to the next little girl
Oh, don't ask why, no, don't ask why
For we must find the next little girl

Or if we don't find the next little girl
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have little girl or you know why

Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say auf Wiedersehen
We've lost our good old mama
And must have little girl or you know why
You know why, you know why

Berthold Brecht would love this version of his song. Great playwright. Love David 's version. Love the Doors as well. But David is my first love

Marisol Montero

Agreed!!!

JJ Bluefire

I'm scared for my life

NS Steampunk

It was 3 years ago today since we lost David Bowie

Konrad Schmidt

@JJ Bluefire that's dark humor 😅

JJ Bluefire

He didn't find the next whiskey bar

Matthew Walton

And I thought the Lotte Lenya version was unsettling...

Oh, show me the way to the next whiskey bar
Oh, don't ask why, no, don't ask why
For we must find the next whiskey bar
Or if we don't find the next whiskey bar
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey or you know why
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey or you know why
Oh, show us the way to the next little dollar
Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
For we must find the next little dollar
Or if we don't find the next little dollar
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have dollar or you know why
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have dollar or you know why
Oh, show us the way to the next little girl
Oh, don't ask why, no, don't ask why
For we must find the next little girl
Or if we don't find the next little girl
I tell you we must die, I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have little girl or you know why
Oh, moon of Alabama, it's time to say auf Wiedersehen
We've lost our good old mama
And must have little girl or you know why
You know why, you know why
