Future Legend Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie
Album: Diamond Dogs

And in the death
As the last few corpses lay rotting on the slimy thoroughfare
The shutters lifted in acient Temperance Building
High on Poacher's Hill
And red mutant eyes gaze down on Hunger City
No more big wheels

Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats
And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love-Me Avenue
Ripping and rewrapping mink and shiny silver fox, now legwarmers
Family badge of sapphire and cracked emerald
in the day of the dog
the year of the diamond dog
this aint rock and roll its genocide

Boy it isn't that hard to get these lyrics wrong as they are printed on the inside of the diamond dogs album, BUT YOU DID!!
First CORRECTION: "THE SHUTTERS LIFTED *inches* IN TEMPERANCE BUILDING . .
Second Correction: FAMILY BADGE OF SAPHIRE AND CRACKED EMERALD *any day now* THE YEAR OF THE DIAMOND DOGS . .
but don't take my word for it, go see the album and find out how wrong you are!!
