Life On Mars

David Bowie

 FF/EF/Eb
 It's a god-awful small affair   
 D7Gm
To the girl with the mousy hair 
 Gm/F
But her mummy is yelling "No"
 CF
 And her daddy has told her to go 
 F/EF/Eb
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
 D7Gm
Now she walks through her sunken dream 
 Gm/FC
To the seat with the clearest view  
 Ab/Eb
And she's hooked to the silver screen 
 C/EFm
But the film is a saddening bore 
 Ab/GbDb
For she's lived it ten times or more 
 F/ABbm
She could spit in the eyes of fools  
 Db/B
As they ask her to focus on

 BbEb
 Sailors fighting in the dance hall
 GmGb+FFm
 Oh man! Look at those cavemen go  
 CmEbm
It's the freakiest show   
 Bb
Take a look at the Lawman
 Eb
 Beating up the wrong guy
 GmGb+FFm
 Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know     
 CmEbm
He's in the best selling show    
 Gm2Gm/F#Gm/FGm/E
Is there life on Mars?              

 FF/EF/Eb
 It's on Amerikas tortured brow 
 D7Gm
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow 
 Gm/FC
Now the workers have struck for fame  
 F
'Cause Lennon's on sale again 
 F/EF/Eb
See the mice in their million hordes 
 D7Gm
From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads 
 Gm/FC
Rule Britannia is out of bounds 
 Ab/Eb
To my mother, my dog, and clowns 
 C/EFm
But the film is a saddening bore  
 Ab/GbDb
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more 
 F/ABbm
It's about to be writ again 
 Db/B
As I ask you to focus on

 BbEb
 Sailors fighting in the dance hall
 GmGb+FFm
 Oh man! Look at those cavemen go  
 CmEbm
It's the freakiest show   
 Bb
Take a look at the Lawman
 Eb
 Beating up the wrong guy
 GmGb+FFm
 Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know     
 CmEbm
He's in the best selling show    
 Gm2Gm/F#Gm/FGm/E
Is there life on Mars?
