The Jean Genie
David Bowie Lyrics


A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city
Strung out on lasers and slash-back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking 'bout Monroe and walking on Snow White
New York's a go-go, and everything tastes right
Poor little Greenie, ooh-ooh

Keep her comin'
The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls (Jean Genie)
Jean Genie, let yourself go, whoah

Sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile
She love him, she love him but just for a short while
She'll scratch in the sand, won't let go his hand
He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition
And keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear
Poor little Greenie, ooh-ooh

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls (Jean Genie)
Jean Genie, let yourself go, whoah

He's so simple-minded, he can't drive his module
He bites on the neon and sleeps in a capsule
Loves to be loved, loves to be loved

Oh, Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls (Jean Genie)
Jean Genie, let yourself go, whoah

Go!
Go!

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls (Jean Genie)
Jean Genie, let yourself go, whoah

Go, go go!

A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city
Strung out on lasers and slash-back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking 'bout Munroe and walking on Snow White
New York's a go-go and everything tastes nice
Poor little greenie

Get back home

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
(The Jean Genie) He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
Jean Genie, let yourself go

He sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile
She love him, she love him but just for a short while
She'll scratch in the demand, won't let go his hand
He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition
And keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear
Poor little greenie

Oh

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
(The Jean Genie) He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
Jean Genie, let yourself go

He's so simple-minded, he can't drive his module
He bites on the neon and sleeps in a capsule
He loves to be loved
Loves to be loved
Ooh

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
(The Jean Genie) He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
Jean Genie, let yourself go
Go

The Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
(The Jean Genie) He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
Jean Genie, let yourself go
Go

Thank you for taking the time to look up the lyrics and post them.

Lol, it's 'underwear', he says it very clearly. It's also on his handwritten lyrics.

@Don Jonsen it's what he actually sings... artists don't always sing lyrics exactly as they wrote them on the sleeve
