Five Years

David Bowie

 GEm
 Pushing through the market square, so many mothers sighing  
 AC
 News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
 GEm
 News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
 AC
 Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying
 G
I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
 Em
I saw boys, toys, electric irons and TV's
 A
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
 C
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
 AmCAm
And all the fat-skinny people,    and all the tall-short people
 CGCD
 And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
 C
I never thought I'd need so many people

 GEm
 A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children
 AC
 If the black hadn't a pulled her off, I think she would have killed them
 GEm
 A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
 AC
 A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer threw up at the sight of that
 GEm
 I think I saw you in an ice cream parlor, drinking  milk shakes cold and long
 AC
 Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think you knew you were in this song
 G
 And it was cold, and it rained, so I felt like an actor
 Em
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
 A
Your face, your race, the way that you talk 
 C
kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

 GEm
We got five years, stuck on my eyes - Five years, what a suprise
 AC
We got five years, my brain hurts alot - Five years, that's all we got 
 G
We got five years...
