A New Career In A New Town

“A New Career in a New Town” is an instrumental piece by David Bowie for his 1977 album Low.

Richard Guest (over at The Future Is Papier Mâché) and me are having David Bowie week – which means we’re posting photos and naming them after titles from David Bowie songs. The first concert I was ever at was David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision World Tour” on Jordal Amfi, Oslo on the 22th of August 1990.

Here’s our previous entries for David Bowie week

EDIT: Another blogger also joined us, but since then his blog has been deleted, so I’ve removed the links (dead links are no fun).

    War made him a soldier
    Little Frankie Mear
    Peace left him a loser
    The little bombardier

    Lines of worry appeared with age
    Unskilled hands that knew no trade
    Spent his time in the picture house
    The little bombardier

    Frankie drank his money
    The little that he made
    Told his woes to no man
    Friendless, lonely days

    Then one day, in the ABC
    Four bright eyes gazed longingly
    At the ice-cream in the hand of
    The little bombardier

    Sunshine entered our Frankie’s days
    Gone his worries, his hopeless maze
    His life was fun and his heart was full of joy

    Two young children had changed his aims
    He gave them toffees and played their games
    He brought them presents with every coin he made

    Then two gentlemen called on him
    Asked him for his name
    Why was he friends with the children
    Were they just a game?

    Leave them alone or we’ll get sore
    We’ve had blokes like you in the station before
    The hand of authority said “no more”
    To the little bombardier

    Packed his bags, his heart in pain
    Wiped a tear and caught a train
    Not to be seen in the town again
    The little bombardier
