David Bowie song help

From a friend of mine. The names have been changed to protect the innocent:

Hey Josh, do you know of a song that I think David Bowie did that has a hook (or chorus) that goes "somebody send me home"? It could have been "somebody sent me home", but I'm not 100% sure. I heard it on a classic rock station and tried looking up the lyrics but am having no luck.

Blue Jean comes close (but doesn't have the word home). I had to look it up since the lyrics you posted don't sound familiar to me.

DAVID BOWIE: "Blue Jean"

Home D DAVID BOWIE Blue Jean Lyrics
Blue Jean
I just met me a girl named Blue Jean

Blue Jean
she got a camouflaged face and no money
Remember they always let you down when you need 'em

Oh, Blue Jean
is heaven any sweeter than Blue Jean
She got a police bike
She got a turned up nose

CHORUS
Sometimes I feel like
(Oh, the whole human race)
Jazzin' for Blue Jean
(Oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
Blue Jean can send me
(Oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me
(Oh, somebody send me)


One day I'm gonna write a poem in a letter
One day I'm gonna get that faculty together
Remember that everybody has to wait in line for
Blue Jean
look out world you know I've got mine
She got Latin roots
She got everything

CHORUS 2x
Sometimes I feel like
(Oh, the whole human race)
Jazzin' for Blue Jean
(Oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
Blue Jean can send me
(Oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me
(Oh, somebody send me)

Somebody somebody
(Oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me
(Oh, somebody send me)

That'd be it - good one. The "Oh" of the second line comes in as backing vox straight after the "Somebody Send me" so it could easily be misheard as "Somebody send me home".
