A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. If you're a David Bowie fan with deep pockets, here's a chance to own a page of music history. A handwritten lyric for two of his songs will be auctioned off in the U.K. today. It includes notes on the 1972 track "Suffragette City."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "SUFFRAGETTE CITY")

BOWIE: (Singing) Oh, my suffragette city.

MARTÍNEZ: The lyrics are expected to cost the winning bidder over $100,000.
