Life on Mars

David Bowie

 GG/F#Dm/FE7Am
It's a god-awful small affair to the girl with the mousy hair
 Am/GD/F#G
But her mother is yelling "No" and her father has told her to go
 G/F#Dm/F
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
 E7Am
as she walks through her sunken dream
 Am/GD/F#
To the seat with the clearest view
 Bb
and she's hooked to the silver screen
 Bb+Gm
But the film is a saddening bore
 G#Eb
For she's lived it ten times or more
 G7CmEb
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on

CHORUS:
 CFG
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall
 AmFmGGmDm
Oh man! look at those cavemen go,    it's the freakiest show
 FmCFG
 Take a look at the Lawman, beating up the wrong guy
 AmFmGGmDm
 Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know   he's in the best selling show
 FmAmC+Am7D7FGsus4D
 Is there life on Mars?                        

It's on America's tortured brow
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 hordes
>From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Brittania is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
`Cause I wrote it ten times before
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on ...CHORUS
