«The Laughing Gnome» – Single (1967)

Well I gave him roasted toadstools and a glass of dandelion wine (burp, pardon)
Then I put him on a train to eastbourne
Carried his bag and gave him a fag
(haven’t you got a light boy? )
«here, where do you come from? «
(gnome-man’s land, hahihihi)
«oh, really? «

«Let Me Sleep Beside You» – The World of David Bowie (1970)

Lock away your childhood and throw away the key,
For now the streets and city sounds will burn your eyes as coals.
We shall drink the oldest wine, and velvet skies will linger.
Child, you’re a woman now, your heart and soul are free.
I will hold a lighted lamp, and we shall walk together.

«All the Young Dudes» con Mott the Hoople – All the Young Dudes (1972)

Productor, saxofón, escritor.

Now I’ve drunk a lot of wine and I’m feeling fine
Got to race some cat to bed
Oh, is there concrete all around or is it in my head?
Yeah, I’m a dude, dad

«Music is lethal» con Mick Ronson – Slaughter on 10th Avenue (1974)


My friend myself, boredom’s hero, prince of the alleys
Stumble falling to a winsome table, in search of wine
Mulatto hookers, cocaine bookers, troubled husbands
Stolen freedoms that only evening unfolds to shine

«Blackout» – Heroes (1977)

Too, too high a price
To drink rotting wine from your hands
Your fearful hands
Get me to a doctor’s I’ve been told
Someone’s back in town
the chips are down
I just cut and blackout
I’m under Japanese influence
And my honour’s at stake

«Fall in Love with Me» con Iggy Pop – Lust for Life (1977)

Co-productor, piano, co-escritor

You look so good to me
Here in this old saloon
Way back in West Berlin
A bottle of white wine
White wine and you

«Under Pressure» con Queen – 1981

No aparece el vino en la letra de la canción, sin embargo parece que el vino, junto con alguna otra sustancia jugó un papel importante a la hora de crearla e interpretarla junto a Freddy Mercury.

«Cactus» – Heathen (2002)

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing
doesn’t mean you’re not dead
So spill your breakfast
and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you dine
