INTRO:
[Bb]  [F]  [Bb]  hey la la la... [F] hey la la la...

[Gm] Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low-ow- [F] ow
I leaned back on my radio-o- [C] o
Some cat was layin'down some [C7] rock'n'roll'lotta soul, he [F] said [Ab] [Bb2]
[Gm] Then the loud sound did seem to fa-a-a- [F] de
Came back like slow voice on a wave of pha-a-a- [C] se

[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky
He'd [Am] like to come and [C] meet us
But he [C7] thinks he'd blow our minds
[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky
He's [Am] told us not to  [C] blow it
Cause he [C7] knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
[Bb] Let the children [Bbm] lose it
[F]  Let the children [Dm7] use it
[Gm] Let the children [F]   boogle

[Gm] I had to phone someone so I picked on you-ou- [F] ou
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too-oo- [C] oo
Switch on the TV we may [C7] pick him up on channel [F] two [Ab] [Bb2]
[Gm] Look out your window I can see the light-ight- [F] ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonight-ight- [C] ight
Don't tell your papa or he'll [C7] get us locked up in fright [A] [G]

He'd [Am] like to come and [C] meet us
But he [C7] thinks he'd blow our minds

About the artist behind Space Oddity:

"Ashes to Ashes" is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. Bowie has said that with this song he was "wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it".[1]
