Verse 1

F       Am                          Cm/Eb
It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
Gm         Bb                                 C7
   But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go

But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen


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


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
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?


F   F#dim Gm  Ddim Am Bb  Bbm

Verse 2

It's on Amerika's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again

See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibeza to the norfolk broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns


But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show

Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?


P.S. I know this appears at the bottom of many tabs, but this tab really is my first!

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.
