Life on Mars Ms Lonely

Life on Mars?

by David Bowie, 1973

It's a God-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mommy is yelling, "No"
And her daddy has told her to go

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

But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her 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?

It's on America'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 hoards
From Ibetha to the Norfolk Boards
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?
