David Bowie - Uncle Arthur

Strikes the bell for 5 o'clock, Uncle Arthur closes shop
Memukul bel pukul 5, Paman Arthur menutup toko

Screws the tops on all the bottles, turns the lights out, locks it up
Pasang tutup pada semua botol, matikan lampu, kunci

Climbs across his bike and he's away
Naik melintasi sepedanya dan dia pergi

Cycles past the gasworks, past the river, down the high street
Siklus melewati pabrik gas, melewati sungai, menyusuri jalan tinggi

Back to mother, it's another empty day
Kembali ke ibu, ini hari kosong lainnya

Uncle Arthur likes his mommy
Paman Arthur menyukai ibunya

Uncle Arthur still reads comics
Paman Arthur masih membaca komik

Uncle Arthur follows Batman
Paman Arthur mengikuti Batman

Round and round the rumours fly, how he ran away from Mum
Berputar-putar desas-desus terbang, bagaimana dia melarikan diri dari Mum

On his 32nd birthday, told her that he'd found a chum Mother cried and raved and yelled and fussed
Pada hari ulang tahunnya yang ke-32, mengatakan kepadanya bahwa dia telah menemukan sahabat karib menangis dan mengoceh dan berteriak dan ribut

Arthur left her no illusion, brought the girl round, save confusion
Arthur meninggalkannya tanpa ilusi, membawa gadis itu berkeliling, menyelamatkan kebingungan

Sally was the real thing, not just lust
Sally adalah hal yang nyata, bukan hanya nafsu

Uncle Arthur vanished quickly
Paman Arthur lenyap dengan cepat

Uncle Arthur and his new bride
Paman Arthur dan pengantin barunya

Uncle Arthur follows Sally
Paman Arthur mengikuti Sally

Round and round goes Arthur's head, hasn't eaten well for days
Berputar-putar di kepala Arthur, belum makan dengan baik selama berhari-hari
Little Sally may be lovely, but cooking leaves her in a maze
Little Sally mungkin cantik, tetapi memasak membuatnya bingung

Uncle Arthur packed his bags and fled
Paman Arthur mengemasi tasnya dan melarikan diri

Back to mother, all's forgiven, serving in the family shop
Kembali ke ibu, semua dimaafkan, melayani di toko keluarga

He gets his pocket money, he's well fed
Dia mendapat uang sakunya, dia cukup makan

Uncle Arthur past the gasworks
Paman Arthur melewati bensin

Uncle Arthur past the river
Paman Arthur melewati sungai

Uncle Arthur down the high street
Paman Arthur di jalan raya

Uncle Arthur follows mother
Paman Arthur mengikuti ibu
