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

 

Bb+: 2 2 4 3 3 2 Eb: x 6 5 3 4 3

C+: x 0 2 1 1 0 Gsus4: 3 2 0 0 1 3

Dm/F: 1 x 0 2 3 1

 

 

NOTE: For the verse, pick with the following pattern- the base note and

first and second strings all simultaneously, then the third string. For

the chorus, strum.
