Lyrics

STARMAN -- words and music by David Bowie

Verse-

didn't know what time it was the lights were low

i leaned back on my radio

some cat was laying down some rock and roll "lotta soul" he said

then that 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

 

Chorus-

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 use it, let the children lose it, let all the children boogie

 

Verse-

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 papa or he'll get us locked up in fright

 

Chorus-

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 use it, let the children lose it, let all the children boogie

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 use it, let the children lose it, let all the children boogie

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