Bowie, Krauss - Life After Marriage

from Demos by ttypes

/

about

The vocals and lyrics were written and recorded by Tim of Types. This is a novelty song and an homage, I have no illusions of actually sounding like the eternal David Bowie.
The backing track is from 'Vampires of Human Flesh,' a bootleg of outtakes from David Bowie's 'Scary Monsters.' Appearing on the bootleg under the title 'Is There Life After Marriage,' the song is actually an instrumental attempt at covering the Cream song 'I Feel Free.' I say attempt because what they ended up with isn't said Cream song. Bowie later released a cover of 'I Feel Free' on 'Black Tie/White Noise.'

lyrics

When I try to work it out (I) get nowhere.
And that's exactly the problem we're facing when you open the door.
But don't you worry about that- no- anymore.
'Cause. 'Cause.
Is there life after marriage.
(if you wanted it to be simple then it wouldn't be)
Is there life before marriage.
It's all right if you do it when you know it then you know it 'cause you know
when you try to work it out (you) get nowhere.
When you try to work it out (you) get nowhere.
'Cause it's love.
And that's no...
Is there life after marriage.
Is there life before life.
Oh comin'.
Any any any any any...
Wanna call or have idea about anything that you could think about at all.
(dialogue)
I've got no illusions in this world.
I've got no illusions no.
Is there life after marriage.
Is there life before marriage.
What? Just don't ask me.
Baby I'm so sorry that everything was not like we thought it was when we wished about it was sittin' in the future 'cause I wanna be there when I wasn't there...
It's all right if you do it when you know it, that you know it, that you can't do it wrong.
You'll do fine whatever.
You'll do fine whatever you do.
Can't do it wrong.
Can't do no one wrong.
