Life on Mars?

Song Author David Bowie Lyrics by: David Bowie Performer: David Bowie Submitted by: halldorberg
[F]It's a [F/E]God awful small [F7]affair
To the [D]girl with the mousy [Gm]hair   
But her [Gm7]mummy is yelling [C]no  
And her [C7]daddy has told her to [F]go  
But her [F/E]friend is nowhere to be [F7]seen   
Now [D]she walks through her sunken [Gm]dream
To the [Gm7]seat with the clearest [C]view
And she's hooked to the [C7]silver [Ab]screen
But the [Ab+]film is a saddening [Fm]bore   
For she's [Ab7]lived it ten times or [Db]more   
She could [F7]spit in the eyes of [Bbm]fools    
[Db]As they ask her to focus on

[Bb]Sailors [Eb]fighting in the dance hall
[Gm]Oh man [F#+]look at those cavemen [F]go  
[Fm]It's the freakiest [Cm7]show    
[Ebm7]Take a look at the [Bb]lawman [Eb]beating up the wrong guy
[Gm]Oh man [F#+]wonder if he'll ever [F]know
[Fm]He's in the best selling [Cm7]show    
[Ebm7]Is there life on [Gm]mars? [F#+]    [Bb]    [Gdim]    

[F]    [F#dim]    [Gm]    [G#dim]    [Am]    [Bb]    [Bbm]    
[F]It's on [F/E]Americas tortured [F7]brow   
That [D] Mickey Mouse has grown up a [Gm]cow   
Now the [Gm7]workers have struck for [C]fame
cause [C7]Lennon's on sale [F]again
See the [F/E]mice in their million [F7]hoards
From [D]Ibiza to the Norfolk [Gm]Broads
Rule [Gm7]Brittannia is out of [C]bounds
To my [C7]mother my dog and [Ab]clowns
But the [Ab+]film is a saddening [Fm]bore   
Cause I [Ab7]wrote it ten times or [Db]more   
It's about [F7]to be writ [Bbm]agine    
[Db]As they ask her to focus on

[Bb]Sailors [Eb]fighting in the dance hall
[Gm]Oh man [F#+]look at those cavemen [F]go  
[Fm]It's the freakiest [Cm7]show    
[Ebm7]Take a look at the [Bb]lawman [Eb]beating up the wrong guy
[Gm]Oh man [F#+]wonder if he'll ever [F]know
[Fm]He's in the best selling [Cm7]show    
[Ebm7]Is there life on [Gm]mars? [F#+]    [Bb]    [Gdim]    

[F]    [F#dim]    [Gm]    [Bb]    [Eb]    [Ebm]    [Bb]    

It's a God awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling no
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on mars?


It's on Americas tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hoards
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Brittannia is out of bounds
To my mother my dog and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ agine
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on mars?
