    Lyrics

    It's a God awful small affair
    To the girl with the mousey hair
    But her mummy is yelling, "No!"
    And her daddy has told her to go
    But her friend is no where to be seen
    Now she walks through her sunken dream
    To the seats with the clearest view
    And she's hooked to the silver screen
    But the film is A sadd'ning 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 a vein
    'Cause Lennon'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 sadd'ning 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?

      Fantastic song.

      One of my favorites by Bowie. Unfortunate that his voice is dying after all these years of smoking and drinking. I'd give a five to the vocals, but the Reality tour proves that his voice is close to shot.

      So sad. In the days of Hunky Dory, he did it so fantastically...

      Probably one of his best songs ever, so touchy and melodic - a hymn that lasts 'til eternity.

      Sebastian, the one they^ talked about, is actually really really good.. Though, noone can ever do this song better than David Bowie.. Because it's a David Bowie song.. And WHAT a song Really, this song is on my top 10 of all time
