British singer David Bowie's handwritten sheet of lyrics to two of his songs could fetch up to £100,000 when sold at auction.

The BBC writes that they contain the late singer's corrections, drafts and notes during the making of his songs Rock n Roll Suicide and Suffragette City.

The auction house previously sold a page of Bowie's handwritten lyrics to his hit Starman for £165,000. Bowie died of liver cancer aged 69 in January 2016.

A letter accompanying the page states that it was given to the original owner by Bowie at Trident Studio along with several other pages of original lyrics, including some that did not survive.

The sheet containing the lyrics was loaned to the V&A museum and remained with the exhibition for five years, while earlier a Jean Genie lyrics by David Bowie sold for £57,000.
