Bowie, David - Andy Warhol Lyrics

Like to take a cement fix
Be a standing cinema
Dress my friends up
just for show
See them as they really are
Put a peephole in my brain
Two New Pence to have a go
I'd like to be a gallery
Put you all inside my show

Andy Warhol looks a scream
Hang him on my wall
Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
Can't tell them apart at all

Andy walking, Andy tired
Andy take a little snooze
Tie him up when he's fast asleep
Send him on a pleasant cruise
When he wakes up on the sea
Be sure to think of me and you
He'll think about paint
and he'll think about glue
What a jolly boring thing to do

Bowie, David Andy Warhol Comments
  1. Karl Ertunc

    If I had been Andy Warhol, I wouldn't have liked this song. Bowie must have taken the piss out of 'Warhole'.

  2. the Epster

    Reminds me of my youth listening to Bowie albums on repeat with headphones at 4AM in the morning while everyone else was fast asleep. I know every millisecond like an old friend. Even waited for the manic clapping at the end. Pure genius. The man defined his own genre then continuously changed it all over and over.

  3. Blake70

    How Mick Ronson was so integral to these songs..such a jewel!

  4. Cielo Terra


  5. kakami okatsu

    Sono nato nel 1982 e Hunky Dory è uno degli album che hanno segnato la mia adolescenza... Quando si dice: cresciuto "fuori tempo" ;)

  6. The Saint Anger Snare

    Kirk: Hey David can I copy your homework
    David: Ok but change it a bit.
    Kirk: How about I make it better
    David: Wut?

  7. Jim Pickens

    Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream master, master!

  8. Persona Non Grata

    Andy Warhol was Stuart Sutcliffe, they gave him a fake back story, Sutcliffe was mentored by Eduardo Paolaozzi in Hamburg 60-62, the inventor of Pop Art, Silver Screen SS 'Cant Tell Them Apart At All'.

  9. Ancient Mariner

    Master Of Puppets.

  10. Mr. ENGlishJELLo

    Thanks to Stone Temple Pilots i now know of this song. Love 'em both!

    STP version:

    Jamarcus Russell

    Master! Master! Promised only lies!

  16. marc layne

    Andy Warhol.......American Gunslinger of Pop Art.....

  17. Neil Phelan

    David Bowie, a genuine original, one of a kind, set the bar for countless musicians and groups that followed. As a live act it didnt get any better! I saw him perform 3 times in the early seventies, still, to this day, I'm completely blown away!

  18. Espen André Karlsen

    Anyone else hearing the bridge riff of Master of Puppets?

  19. richard lopez

    Forever Bowie in space and in time.

  20. Christopher Lynch Lynch

    Are you listening kids this is what real music sounds like

  21. Shawn Kernen

    So another song Metallica "borrowed" from?

  22. Seraph909

    "What a jolly boring thing to do." $11.7 million can of soup.

  23. Izaak Wicks

    Check out Stone Temple Pilots’ unplugged cover! Bloody awesome too

  24. Nick Stettner

    Epic tune.

  25. Colin Bell

    More genius from the man...the way he played it to andy Warhol to let him know he didn't particular like him is genius on so many levels.


    Masters !!! Thanks !!!

  27. Johnny Rambone

    Check out 'Continental Woman' by Mike Hyder. The most bullshit rip-off copy of this Bowie classic you could imagine.

  28. Sharkwhisperer

    One of the few songs of Bowie I dont care much about....

  30. Vilagfa

    SPIONS: In Andy Warhol's Factory (Full Version)

  31. Lola Samuals

    warhol , famous for screen printing tins of soup .

  32. Leila Bouftila


  33. Helen Russell

    Years ago (early 80s) I was going to college in Washington DC. One day Warhol showed up to sign one of his new books. We had to buy a book and then he would sign it. When it was my turn I asked him what he thought about the song, for some reason it threw him of for a couple of mins, then he responded and said he quite liked it!

  34. Game Loser

    So ahead of his time

  35. Wendy Johnston

    He was a piece of shit loser who thought he was better than everybody else David Bowie was better than him in every shape way & form & Andy knew it. Rest Easy David Bowie

  36. Deep Heat

    I'm still none the wiser as how to pronounce "Andy Warhol?"

  37. Onni Leinonen

    The background sounds like someone being slapped or a belt being snapped

  38. Isa Jones

    How tf Warhol didn't like the song?? Is a masterpiece, omg look at the guitar and the lyrics, genius. I just love it.

  39. Sbren Sbeve

    Damn this guy sounds like he should cover Metallica's master of puppets!

  40. Bogdan Osadczuk

    I know him only from Calvin Klein colaboration

  41. Baldonay13

    John Frusciante sent me here

  42. John Salisbury

    Its undeniably a massive pisstake and character assassination, as in holes, cement, silent t.

  43. selfhiker

  44. Kyle Z

    Metallica's, "Master of Puppets" brought me here...That guitar riff inspired bassist Cliff Burton.

  45. F3L1X S. Kennedy


  46. TACOBOMBtm

    That opening guitar lick is so good

  47. N. N.

    master of puppets

  48. Lucas Eduardo

    00:48 that laughter kills me

  49. no comment

    the claps at the end, didn't they use those claps for Love Is Lost (Steve Reich James Murphy mix)?

  50. Golgotha_Mythos69

    I never really understood the appeal of Andy Warhol's Art or how transformitive it was until I watched this. Check it out, especially those who don't know who he was. It's a PBS doc about his life and career.

  51. Auntie Pasti

    Andy Warhole.

  52. ermonski


  53. DerkuiDerkui

    I like Stone Temple Pilots version, I came here for reference. Great song!


    I would be HONORED if david bowie made a song about me

    Erin Walter

    What else are you "honored" about?

  55. HMat

    Andy Warhol intro riff --> check out Metallica's Master of Puppets at 6:20
    According to Kirk Hammett, they "stole" that intro riff XD

  56. sfakianos7

    Is this where metallica got Master of Puppets?

  57. Kersten Weltlich

    Freaky, but brilliant!


    I feel really dumb having to google who Andy Warhol was but recognizing his marlin Monroe painting

  59. William W. Campbell-Shepherd IX

    in the words of Mike Garson this album wasn't 'folk', it was acoustic glam.

  60. William W. Campbell-Shepherd IX

    When Bowie showed up at Warhol's place to have Andy listen to the tape of this, Andy put it on... then walked out of the room. After it was over, 4 minutes or so later, he returned to the room. Saying nothing.

  61. sebastian cuello

    He best part of this song is the vocal chorus

  62. sirio devil


  63. David Bipolar

    The begging sounds like Crazy Bus theme but it's actually good

  64. Sarah Wiebe

    this is, andy war-hawl, and its take one! this is take one.
    its, its war-hole. hole. its hole. as holes. well, andy war-hole.

  65. PXL Abyss

    Human god...

  66. Daniel Wasil

    Mick Ronson is a god

    Joshua Stephens

    ron de don don

    Remember they used to say this about Clapton?
    Ronson just the cornerstone of this album and Ziggy

  67. Ross Watson

    I play this in my Muppets


    IN your muppets? how big are your muppets?

  68. Rock Massa

    Andy Wahol..Andy Warhol
