David Bowie And His Ex-Wife Angie Taking Their Then 3-Week-Old Baby Zowie Out For A Walk In 1971

Will you stay in our lovers’ story?” David Bowie asks in a song addressed to his newborn son Zowie. “If you stay you won’t be sorry, ’cause we believe in you.”

Kooks, from the 1971 album Hunky Dory, looks ahead to parenthood, alongside his then wife Angie, with optimism. It offers advice to a child growing up in unconventional circumstances.

“I bought you a pair of shoes, a trumpet you can blow and a book of rules on what to say to people when they pick on you,” sings Bowie. “‘Cause if you stay with us you’re gonna be pretty kooky too.”

Kooks isn’t among Bowie’s most famous songs. The better known Changes, Life on Mars and Oh, You Pretty Things all appeared on the same album.
