[Verse 1]

F       Am                          Cm/Eb
It's a god-awful small affair
           D7
To the girl with the mousy hair
Gm         Bb                                 C7
   But her mummy is yelling "No"
                                               F
And her daddy has told her to go
F       Am                          Cm/Eb
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
           D7
Now she walks through her sunken dream.
Gm         Bb                                 C7
To the seat with the clearest view
                                               F
And she's hooked to the silver screen


[Pre-Chorus]

Ab       Eaug                              Fm
But the film is a saddening bore
              G#7
For she's lived it ten times or more
C#           Aaug                           Bbm
She could spit in the eyes of fools
             C#7
As they ask her to focus on


[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

F   F#dim Gm  Ddim Am Bb  Bbm


[Verse 2]

F       Am                          Cm/Eb
It's on Amerika's tortured brow
           D7
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Gm         Bb                                 C7
Now the workers have struck for fame
                                               F
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
F       Am                          Cm/Eb
See the mice in their million hordes
           D7
From Ibeza to the norfolk broads
Gm         Bb                                 C7
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
.                                               F
To my mother, my dog, and clowns


[Pre-Chorus]

Ab       Eaug                              Fm
But the film is a saddening bore
              G#7
For she's lived it ten times or more
C#           Aaug                           Bbm
She could spit in the eyes of fools
             C#7
As they ask her to focus on


[Chorus]

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

The first row of the pre-chorus, I can't put my finger on it but it sounds wierd. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?

Rest of the chords seems fine though. Great job!

I think it's because of the string arrangement at that point. listen to the piano and i think it sounds alright. George

One of the hardest and complex chords for a song.

In a good way of course.

Such a challenge.
