LIFE ON MARS? 
by David Bowie


[Verse]

F        Am/E            F7/Eb          D7                  
   It's a god-awful small affair, to the girl with the mousy hair
Gm        Bb/F              C/E          C7                     
   But her mother is yelling "No," and her father as told her to go
F        Am/E            F7/Eb          D7 
  But her friend is nowhere to be seen, as she walks through her sunken dream
Gm        Bb/F              C/E          C7  
   To the seat with the clearest view, and she's hooked to the silver screen
Ab/Eb     Ab+/E               Fm             Ab7/Gb 
   But the film is a saddening bore, For she's lived it ten times or more
Db          A+                  Bbm           Db7/B
   She could spit in the eyes of fools, as they ask her to focus on


[Chorus]

Bb       Eb              
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall
Gm      Gb+                   F   
Oh man! look at those cavemen go, 
Fm                 Cm7  Ebm7   
   it's a freakest show, take a look at the
Bb       Eb  
Lawman, beating up the wrong guy
Gm      Gb+                   F   
Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know  
Fm                           Cm7   Ebm7   
   he's in the best selling show
                   Gm   Gb+  Bb/F  C9   
Is there life on Mars?


[Interlude]

F   D7/F#   Gm   E7/G#   Am   C7/Bb   Bbm7  


[Verse]

F          Am/E               F7/Eb          D7  
   It's on Amerika's tortured brow, Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Gm          Bb/F                   C/E         C7 
   Now the workers have struck for fame, Cause Lennon's on sale again
F          Am/E                 F7/Eb          D7  
   See the mice in their million hordes, From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads
Gm         Bb/F              C/E          C7 
   Rule Brittania is out of bounds, To my mother, my dog and clowns
Ab/Eb     Ab+/E               Fm             Ab7/Gb 
   But the film is a saddening bore, Cause I wrote it ten times before
Db          A+                  Bbm           Db7/B
   It's about to be writ again, As I ask you to focus on  


[Chorus]

Bb       Eb              
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall
Gm      Gb+                   F   
Oh man! look at those cavemen go, 
Fm                 Cm7  Ebm7   
   it's a freakest show, take a look at the
Bb       Eb  
Lawman, beating up the wrong guy
Gm      Gb+                   F   
Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know  
Fm                           Cm7   Ebm7   
   he's in the best selling show
                   Gm   Gb+  Bb/F  C9   
Is there life on Mars?

The outro is same as interlude to the Gm (first three chords) then it's | Bb | - | - | Eb | Ebm | Bb | (and then the
more silent'ish piano outry goes | F | Fm | Cm7 | Ebm7 |)
