About Rubber Band

"Rubber Band" is a single by David Bowie. The single was released in the UK in December 1966, and marked the start of Bowie's recording contract with Deram which would include his first album, 1967’s David Bowie. It was part of the three-track audition tape Bowie's new manager Kenneth Pitt used to persuade the label to sign him. The track itself shows Bowie's infatuation at the time with Anthony Newley. Despite some good notices in the music press, the single was a flop, once more failing to break into the UK charts. The track, recorded in mono in October 1966 for the UK single, was re-recorded in stereo the following February for Bowie's debut album (and it was this second version used for the American single in June 1967). The B-side, "The London Boys", was belatedly issued as a UK single in 1975.

Rubber Band
There's a rubber band that plays tunes out of tune
In the library garden Sunday afternoon
While a little chappie waves a golden wand

Rubber Band
In 1910 I was so handsome and so strong
My moustache was stiffly waxed and one foot long
And I loved a girl while you played teatime tunes

Dear Rubber Band, you're playing my tune out of tune, oh
Rubber Band 
Won't you play a haunting theme again to me
While I eat my scones and drink my cup of tea
The sun is warm but it's a lonely afternoon

Oh, play that theme
Rubber Band 
How I wish that I could join your Rubber Band
We could play in lively parks throughout the land
And one Sunday afternoon, I'd find my love

Rubber Band, 
In the '14-'18 war I went to sea
Thought my Sunday love was waiting home for me
And now she's married to the leader of the band, oh

(spoken)
Oh sob... I hope you break your baton
