[Verse]

 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?


[Verse]

 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        G/F#                  Dm/F
Cause Lennon's on sale again
 G       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
     G        G/F#                  Dm/F
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]

  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?
