Year: 1971 - Album: Best of Bowie

	  Tuning:D 
 
  
 
 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? 
 
  
 
G      G/F#            Dm/F 
 
It's on Amerika's tortured brow 
 
         E7                  Am 
 
Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow 
 
         Am/G             D/F# 
 
Now the workers have struck for fame 
 
                              G 
 
Cause Lennon's on sale again 
 
          G/F#                  Dm/F 
 
See the mice in their million hordes 
 
        E7                       Am 
 
From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads 
 
     Am/G                  D/F#   
 
Rule Brittania is out of bounds 
 
                             Bb 
 
To my mother, my dog and clowns 
 
          Bb+                Gm 
 
But the film is a saddening bore 
 
           G#                   Eb 
 
`Cause I wrote it ten times before 
 
          G7                   Cm           
 
It's about to be writ again 
 
     Eb 
 
As I ask you to focus on  ....Chorus
