Life On Mars  David Bowie

[F]It's a [F/E]god-awful small affair  [F/Eb]
To the [D7]girl with the mousy hair [Gm]
But her[Gm/F] mummy is yelling "No"
[C]And her daddy has told her to go [F]
But her [F/E]friend is nowhere to be see[F/Eb]n
Now she [D7]walks through her sunken dream [Gm]
To the [Gm/F]seat with the clearest view  [C]
And she's hooked to the silver screen [Ab/Eb]
But the [C/E]film is a saddening bore [Fm]
For she's [Ab/Gb]lived it ten times or more [Db]
She could [F/A]spit in the eyes of fools  [Bbm]
As they [Db/B]ask her to focus on

[Bb]Sailors [Eb]fighting in the dance hall
[Gm]Oh man! [Gb+]Look at those cavemen g[F]o  [Fm]
It's the freakiest [Cm]show   [Ebm]
Take a look at the L[Bb]awman
[Eb]Beating up the wrong guy
[Gm]Oh man! [Gb+]Wonder if he'll ever know [F]    [Fm]
He's in the best selling sh[Cm]ow    [Ebm]
Is there life on M[Gm2]ars? [Gm/F#]       [Gm/F]      [Gm/E]


[F]It's on [F/E]Amerikas tortured brow [F/Eb]
That Mickey [D7]Mouse has grown up a cow [Gm]
Now the w[Gm/F]orkers have struck for fame  [C]
'Cause Lennon's on sale again [F]
See the [F/E]mice in their million hordes [F/Eb]
From [D7]Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads [Gm]
Rule Brit[Gm/F]annia is out of bounds [C]
To my mother, my dog, and clowns [Ab/Eb]
But the [C/E]film is a saddening bore  [Fm]
'Cause I [Ab/Gb]wrote it ten times or more [Db]
It's [F/A]about to be writ again [Bbm]
As I [Db/B]ask you to focus on


[Bb]Sailors [Eb]fighting in the dance hall
[Gm]Oh man! [Gb+]Look at those cavemen g[F]o  [Fm]
It's the freakiest [Cm]show   [Ebm]
Take a look at the L[Bb]awman
[Eb]Beating up the wrong guy
[Gm]Oh man! [Gb+]Wonder if he'll ever know [F]    [Fm]
He's in the best selling sh[Cm]ow    [Ebm]
Is there life on M[Gm2]ars? [Gm/F#]       [Gm/F]      [Gm/E]
