Pop, Iggy - Gardenia Lyrics




Gardenia
Where are you?
Black goddess in a shabby raincoat
Where are you tonight?
Cheap purple baby-doll dress
A gardenia in your hair
Much taller and stronger than me
A forbidden dream, a dream, a dream

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Gardenia
Where are you tonight?
The streets were your home
Now where do you roam?
Your hourglass ass
And your powerful back
Your slant devil eyes
And the ditch down your spine
Deep as... Deep as...

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

We lay in the darkness
Then she turned the lights on
I saw a dangerous habit
When she turned the lights on
There's always a catch
In the darkness when you
When you turn the lights on
There's always a catch
Oh well, oh well, oh well, oh well

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Alone in the cheapo motel
By the highway to hell
America's greatest living poet
Was ogling you all night
You should be wearing the finest gown
But here you are now
Gas, food, lodging, poverty, misery and gardenia
You could be burned at the stake
For all your mistakes, mistakes, mistakes

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

    A forbidden dream, a dream, a dream

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
    What to do tonight

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
    What to do tonight

    Gardenia
    Where are you, tonight?
    The streets were your home
    Now where do you roam?
    Your hourglass ass
    And your powerful back
    Your slant devil eyes
    And the ditch on your spine
    Deep ass, deep ass

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
    What to do tonight

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia

    You could be burned at the stake
    For all your mistakes, mistakes, mistakes

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
    What to do tonight

    All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
    What to do tonight

    This is a golden erect pillar of strength. Peace Christo 👽🐕🎶🛸☮️💀

    Christo Roppolo

    Bowie is smiling in Heaven as this. ....Vibrates thru The pillowy clouds ! Peace Christo 👽🎶🐕🛸☮️💀

  8. Laurie Janes

    This is good - sounds kind of Bowie-ish.

    Papa Düm Tek

    Actually you are getinng an Iggy doing an inpersonation of Bowie doing an Iggy impersonation vibe from it. Know thy history.

  9. Dianne Kathryn

    NOLA LOVE 🌼⚜️🌟💕

  10. andrea layne

    Well it rocks, who's bitching......

  11. Primitive In The Extreme

    🎶🔥🎶

  12. dennis Rock Bottoms kelly

    HOLY SH*T! It's been a LONG time since 1972...and Ig's is STILL The MAN.
    RB/etcetcetc

  13. Δημήτρης Σακελλαρης

    most probably a classic in 30 years.

  14. Deja Red 82

    Soulful tune. Reminds me of 80's Bowie

  15. Cait Tews

    There's this absolute PERFECTION about these lyrics.

  16. MARTHA ELBA HERNANDEZ

    lov it!!

  17. Big Brother Thunder

    This song makes me want to clean

  18. Suncruiser240

  20. Arce Sousa

    GALINHA!!!

  21. Shaun Kelly-Kenyon

    iggy. the un-announced prophet

  22. Gregory Mejchar

    I just discovered this song last week, glad to know that real music is still being made.

  23. Adrimaximus7

    Josh Homme trolling Kyuss with this song

  24. Darkroom Ignite!

    Matt Helders is also present... heathens.

  25. ivanhoE006

    Lots of idiots saying thats Bowie... Thats a signal of lack of imagination, and then the same idiots demand forma better music, you dont deserve it

  26. Robin Davies

    Hmmmm the Heroes cover.....

  27. Terry Rhodes

    The live version on Colbert Report sounds much better than this.

  28. Marissa Dower-morgan

    The Last man standing

  29. kostasxrysogelos

    Just like a "Scary monsters" outtake. I dig it.

  30. asafox

    One of Iggy's best.

  31. lichtlijnen

    Orphaned in time i m Feeling like coming home hearing iggys voice

  32. Red’s Insane Urbex

    Oh; AM drummer! Guess this as close as we'll get to a crossover between AM and Bowie

  33. CP Morgan

    All in for the moon.

  34. Anastasia Markolefa Lefaset

    the backround effect reminds me of "how soon is now" special sound, anyway great artists and song :)

  35. somesh kadam

    Homme:Are we covering a Kyuss song???
    Iggy:No,I made a different song.

  36. Janie BlueJeans

    Matt fucking Helders!

  37. Ardaigh

    to all the people comparing Iggy vs Bowie...there is no and never was a competition. Iggy stands true all by himself, as a genius. Stooges where one of a kind and Iggy's voices always touched my soul.

  38. Juan Carlos Santiago Huantes

    Esto es grandioso, estoy enamorado de esta canción

  39. Sebas Vega

    La iguana volviendo a los viejos tiempos ,que nos queda a los rockeros en estos tiempos ,se fue David Bowie ,Lou Reed ,falta poco para que nos quedemos escuchando solo bandas prefabricadas...

  40. Young Oz

    The intro reminds me of how soon is now by the smiths.

  41. Iwharper

    Outtake from idiot/lust for life sessions.

  42. Carolyn Cook-wehry

    He is SO SO GOOD

  43. Two Step Flow

    nice song, I love you guys

  44. David Strong

    Anything by Iggy is awesome

  45. Raskolnikow

    IT could be on IDIOT album

  46. Chris Drummond

    This song sounds like it could be a Bowie tune. Iggy's voice sounds like Bowie .

  47. Alex UK

    got this album on Vinyl for christmas, and man everytime i listen to this i love it more and more. Stand out track on the record for me.

  48. Polder Cannabis Olie team

    Nice. Bowie music that doesn't irritate me, because this Bowie pretentious stuff isn't in it.
    Just awesome, because for the music on itself. I like it very much.

    I learned to sing and play this on guitar. I've played it frequently for months now. This song is just out of the park. When you can become part of the song when you sing and play along, the groove is substantial.
