[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
                                              
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.
