Life On Mars?
David Bowie Lyrics


It's a God-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
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
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 Lenin's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza 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?

Have you ever seen The labyrinth David Bowie actually plays the goblin King and oh my gosh does he ever sing it so amazingly you'll watch The labyrinth over and over again just so you could see his performance and him singing oh and if you listen to the little monsters that throw their head off their shoulders up and down it sounds like his band when they sing back up.

I wish people would be happy that new people are joining the tribe, happy that this mans deeply beautiful art is reaching new hearts and minds... yea, it sucks that someone is using his work for profit but atleast his work is not fading just yet.
