Davy Jones & The Lower Third - You've Got a Habit of Leaving (1965)

After leaving The Manish Boys in 1965, Davy Jones started to record with this group, The Lower Third. They released two singles together before splitting up, at which point Jones decided to change his stage name. In an effort to avoid confusion with the Davy Jones of The Monkees, he renamed himself after a frontiersman he admired, Jim Bowie, and took his new stage name: David Bowie.

Previously recording R&B sounding songs, this release marked the first time Bowie ventured into a more mod-sounding style. In 2000, Bowie recorded a new version of the song, twice as long, which eventually appeared on the single “Slow Burn”.

Lyrics:

You've got a habit of leaving me
And you've got a habit of deserting me

Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I'm so sad
Sometimes I'm so glad- so glad

You could grow up if you wanted to
Wanted to
Wanted to
Wanted to, oh
If you wanted to, yeah
Oh yeah

You've got a habit of leaving me
And you've got a habit of deserting me

Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I'm so sad
Sometimes I'm so glad- so glad

You could grow up if you wanted to
Wanted to
Wanted to
Wanted to, oh yeah, yeah
Oh, if you wanted to
If you wanted to, yeah, yeah
Wanted to
