Life On Mars.
David Bowie.
Album: Hunky Dory.

Intro: F
           Am/E               Eb Eb6
It's a god-awful small affair,
       D                        Gm
To the girl with the mousy hair,
        Bb/F                   C7
But her mummy is yelling, "No!"
                              F
And her daddy has told her to go,
        Am/E                    Eb6
But her friend is nowhere to be seen,
        D7                Gm     D     Gm
Now she walks through her sunken dream,
                     Bb/F          C
To the seat with the clearest view,
C                              Ab/Eb
And she's hooked to the silver screen.
        E                   Fm   F#
But the film is a saddening bore,
          Gb                    Db
For she's lived it ten times or more,
          Aaug                Bbm
She could spit in the eyes of fools,
       C#7/E#
As they ask her to focus on.

Chorus:
Bb       Eb                        Gm7
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall,
        F#aug                 F  Fm
Oh man! look at those cavemen go,
                   Cm7  Ebm7
It's the freakiest show,
                   Bb
Take a look at the Lawman,
Eb                       Gm
Beating up the wrong guy,
        F#aug                    F Fm
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know,
                             Cm7 Ebm
He's in the best selling show,
                 Gm7 F#aug Bb/F 
Is there life on Mars?

Break: Em7 F F# Gm Ddim Am Bb F

        Am/E      C/E          Eb6
It's on America's tortured brow,
            D                       Gm
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow,
        Bb/F                        C7
Now the workers have struck for fame,
                       F
Cause Lennon's on sale again,
        Am/E                  Eb6
See the mice in their million hordes,
           D7             Gm7
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads,
     Bb/F                      C7
Rule Britannia is out of bounds,
C                         Ab/Eb
To my mother, my dog, and clowns.
        E                   Fm   F#
But the film is a saddening bore,
        Gb                        Db
Cause I wrote it ten times or more,
     Aaug                  Bbm
It's about to be writ again,
                C#7/E#
As I ask her to focus on.

Chorus:
Bb       Eb                        Gm7
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall,
        F#aug                 F  Fm
Oh man! look at those cavemen go,
                   Cm7  Ebm7
It's the freakiest show,
                   Bb
Take a look at the Lawman,
Eb                      Gm
Beating up the wrong guy,
        F#aug                    F Fm
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know,
                             Cm7 Ebm
He's in the best selling show,
                 Gm7 F#aug Bb/F 
Is there life on Mars?

Fade: Em7 F F# Gm Bb/F Eb Ebm7 Bb - Bb7 Eb6
