When you climb to the top of the mountain, look out over the sea
Think about the places perhaps, where a young man could be
Then you jump back down to the rooftops, look out over the town      C  
Think about all of the strange things circulating round         It ain't

 Ooh,   how   I  sighed  when  they asked if I knew his name

Correction by Mark
Lady Stardust - its a more sophisticated song than the others ...
A                |C#               |F#m               |D             |
A                |F#m              |E                 |Ddim - not C sharp 

Theres also something funny about your interpretation of the "awful nice" bit 
- its a simple Em descending sequence not Em to Em7 - I'm won't work out what 
the full chord names are for they will all be E's
