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

About the artist behind Starman:

"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]
