LIFE ON MARS- David Bowie

 

 G      G/F#            Dm/F          E7                  Am

It's a god-awful small affair to the girl with the mousy hair

         Am/G             D/F#                               G

But her mother is yelling "No" and her father as told her to go

          G/F#                  Dm/F

But her friend is nowhere to be seen

        E7                       Am

as she walks through her sunken dream

        Am/G                  D/F# 

To the seat with the clearest view

                                Bb

and she's hooked to the silver screen

          Bb+                Gm

But the film is a saddening bore

            G#                   Eb

For she's lived it ten times or more

           G7                   Cm          Eb

She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on

 

CHORUS:

  C         F                   G

Sailors, fighting in the dance hall

 Am      Fm                    G  Gm                  Dm

Oh man! look at those cavemen go,    it's a freakest show

Fm                   C      F                    G

Take a look at the Lawman, beating up the wrong guy

Am       Fm                     G Gm                          Dm

Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know   he's in the best selling show

Fm                Am   C+  Am7  D7  F  Gsus4  D

Is there life on Mars?

 

 

It's on Amerika'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
