Lyrics

VERSE 1
  White light - White light gonna drive me out of my brain
  White light - White light gonna make me feel so insane
  White heat  - White shapin' them down to my toes
  White light - White light's got it now, goodness knows

VERSE 2
  White light - White light gonna drive me out of my mind 
  White light - White light's surely gonna make me blind
  White heat  - White shaping way down to my toes
  White light - White light could kill me now, goodness knows

CHORUS
  Oh, Oh, White light
  Oh, Oh, White light
  Oh, Oh, White heat
  Oh, Oh, White heat

VERSE 1

VERSE 2

CHORUS (twice) 

White light's a-flashing

White light
Still feels right
What's that sound, what's that sound
Don't turn on, be dead or alive
No feeling
Here she comes
Oww, yeah
(Oh, oh, oh, oh) here she comes
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)

Trivia

David continued to use White Light/White Heat as a perennial concert favourite.
