Starman
John C. Reilly Lyrics


Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two
Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Lyrics

Goodbye love, goodbye love
Didn't know what time it was the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll lotta soul, he said

Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no DJ that was hazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds

Theres a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me, “Let the children use it
Let the children lose it, let all the children boogie”

I had to phone someone so I picked up on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too
Switch on the TV, we may pick him up on channel two

Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds

Theres a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me, “Let the children lose it
Let the children use it, let all the children boogie”

Starman, he's waiting in the sky
Starman, someday he'll blow our minds
Starman, won't you come on down and see me some time?
Say, starman someday come down and fly
Starman
Thank you

I’m no longer mainlining acid or pcp anymore. Don’t be afraid.

Alexander Hicks

the fact he made this music while not being able to smell :( what a feel good story

Ron Allman

Too many likes here during this era when Cox was exploited and forced to sell out .

Logan Palmer

He stopped writing deep music like he did in 60s.

The Road Warrior

John needs to release his own album, his voice is great
