Bowie by Flight of the Conchords
Basically the entire first half of the song follow the following five chords.
[Em] [C] [Em9] [Am] [Em]  

Intro: Em C Em9
[Em]Bowi[C]e‚?[Em9]?s in[Am] spa[Em]ce
Bowie‚??s in spa-he-hase
Whatcha doin‚?? out there, man?
That‚??s pretty freaky, Bowie.
I hear that space is a pretty freaky place
Doesn't it get quite cold in the depths of space, Bowie?
Do you need my jumper, Bowie?
Does the space cold make your nipples go all pointy?
Do you use your pointy nipples as telescopic antenna transmitting data back to Earth?
Data back to Earth
(Data back to Earth)
I bet you do, you freaky old bastard, you.
Do you have one really funky sequined space suit, Bowie?
Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?
Do they smoke grass up there in space, man?
Or do they smoke Astro-Turf?
Oh yeah! Roll me up the Astroturf!
Move D shape from 1st to 4th frets
[Db] [D] [D#] [E]  

Receiving transmission from David Bowie‚??s nipple antennae.
(At this point, the same note on the bass is picked, and Bret strums)
[F#] [G]  

[G]Thi[F]s is Bowie to Bowie, do you hear me out there, man?
[G]Thi[F]s i[G]s Bowie back to Bowie, I read you loud and clear, man.
G G (let ring)
Oooh yeah, man!
[G]You[F]r signal is weak on my radar screen,
[F]How[G] fa[F]r out are you, man? I‚??m pretty far out
[F]Tha[G]t‚??s pretty far out, man!
[G]O-o[A]-oh, I‚??m orbiting Pluto!
[A]Ooh[B] Ah ooh
[B]Dra[B#]wn in by its Groovatational, Groovatational pull.
[B#]I‚??m jamming out with the Mick Jaggernauts
G F F F (let ring)
And they think it‚??s pretty cool man‚?¶.
(fingerpicked, free feeling)
[F]Are[G] you okay, Bowie? What was that sound?
[G]I d[A]on‚??t know man, I‚??d have to turn my ship around.
[A]Oh,[G] it‚??s the craziest scene.
[G]Ye[G#]ah, I‚??m picking it up on my LSD screen.
[G#]Ooh[A], but can you see the stratosphere‚?¶ringing‚?¶
F (nc)
To the choir of afronauts singing?
(Slide Barred F shape up and down neck)
(Fingerpicking ceases)
[G]Hey[C] no[D]w, I‚??m a meenie miney mowie! (set your phasers on funky)
[G]Hey[C] no[D]w, I‚??m a meenie miney mowie! (phaser sounds)
[G]Hey[C] no[D]w, I‚??m a meenie miney miney miney mowie!
[G]B-B[F]-B-[A]Bow[F]ie‚??s in‚?¶‚?¶
