"Suffragette City" is a cover song by Andy Taylor, released as a B-side to his sixth single "Stone Cold Sober" by A&M Records in September 1990.

About the songEdit

Written by David Bowie, the song was originally released on his The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars album in 1972. It was later issued as a single in 1976 to promote the Changesonebowie compilation in the UK.

"Suffragette City" features a piano riff heavily influenced by Little Richard and a lyrical reference to the book and film A Clockwork Orange.

Andy Taylor's version was recorded at the Trident II Studios in London during the summer of 1990, when he was recording the covers album Dangerous. This track wasn't included on the album.

The track was later included on the unofficial Dangerous 2006 edition, released by the DD Fan Club.

Simon Le Bon performed the song with Hazel O'Conner in December 1980, which was released on O'Conner's 12" single "Time".

Duran Duran have also covered the song during a Birmingham Christmas Show in 1980.

LyricsEdit

(Hey man)
Oh, leave me alone, you know
(Hey man)
Oh, Henry, get off the phone, I gotta
(Hey man)
I gotta straighten my face
This mellow-thighed chick just put my spine out of place

(Hey man)
My school days insane
(Hey man)
My works down the drain
(Hey man)
Well she's a total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it
But she...
And then she...

Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from Suffragette City
Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City is outta sight
She's all right

(Hey man)
Ah, Henry, don't be unkind, go away
(Hey man)
I can't take you this time, no way
(Hey man)
Droogie, don't crash here
There's only room for one
And here she comes, here she comes

Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from Suffragette City
Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City is outta sight
She's all right

Oh, hit me!

Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from Suffragette City
Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City

Don't lean on me, man
'Cos you can't afford the ticket
I'm back from Suffragette City
Oh, don't lean on me, man
'Cos you ain't got time to check it
You know my Suffragette City is outta sight
She's all right

A Suffragette City
A Suffragette City
I'm back from Suffragette City
I'm back from Suffragette City
Ooh
Suffragette City
Ooh
Suffragette City
Ooh, how
Suffragette City
Ooh, how
Suffragette

Ooh
Wham bam, thank you ma'am
A Suffragette City
A Suffragette City
Quite all right
A Suffragette City
Too fine
A Suffragette City
Ooh
A Suffragette City
Oh
My Suffragette City
Oh my Suffragette City
Oh
Suffragette
Suffragette
