Life on Mars  David Bowie

I[G]t's a g[G/F#]od-awful small a[Dm/F]ffair to the g[E7]irl with the mousy h[Am]air
But her m[Am/G]other is yelling [D/F#]"No" and her father has told her to[G] go
But her fr[G/F#]iend is nowhere to be [Dm/F]seen
as she w[E7]alks through her sunken d[Am]ream
To the s[Am/G]eat with the clearest [D/F#]view
and she's hooked to the silver s[Bb]creen
But the fi[Bb+]lm is a saddening b[Gm]ore
For she's li[G#]ved it ten times or m[Eb]ore
She could s[G7]pit in the eyes of fo[Cm]ols as they [Eb]ask her to focus on
Sa[C]ilors, fig[F]hting in the dance h[G]all
O[Am]h man! l[Fm]ook at those cavemen g[G]o, [Gm]   it's the freakies[Dm]t show
[Fm]Take a look at the La[C]wman, b[F]eating up the wrong g[G]uy
[Am]Oh man!  [Fm]Wonder if he'll ever kn[G]ow[Gm]   he's in the best selling [Dm]show
[Fm]Is there life on M[Am]ars? [C+]    [Am7]     [D7]    [F]   [Gsus4]       [D]

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
