modern love




i don't want to go out
i wont stay in
get things done

i catch a paper boy
but things don't really change
i'm standing in the wind
but i never wave bye-bye

but i try, i try

there's no sign of life
it's just the power to charm
i'm lying in the rain
but i never wave bye-bye

but i try, i try

never gonna fall for
modern love - walks beside me
modern love - walks on by
modern love - gets me to the church on time
church on time - terrifies me
church on time - makes me party
church on time - puts my trust in god and man
god and man - no confessions
god and man - no religion
god and man - don't believe in modern love

it's not really work
it's just the power to charm
i'm still standing in the wind
but i never wave bye bye

but i try, i try

never gonna fall for
modern love - walks beside me
modern love - walks on by
modern love - gets me to the church on time
church on time - terrifies me
church on time - makes me party
church on time - puts my trust in god and man
god and man - no confessions
god and man - no religion
god and man - don't believe in modern love
modern love - walks beside me
modern love - walks on by
modern love - gets me to the church on time
church on time - terrifies me
church on time - makes me party
church on time - puts my trust in god and man
god and man - no confessions
god and man - no religion
god and man - i don't believe in modern love

modern love - modern love, walks beside me
modern love - modern love, walks on by
modern love - modern love, walks beside me
modern love - modern love, walks on by
never gonna fall for

china girl

oh little china girl

i could escape this feeling, with my china girl
i feel a wreck without my, little china girl
i hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
saw the stars crashing

i'm a mess without my little china girl
wake up in the morning
where's my, little china girl?
i hear our heart's beating, loud as thunder
i saw the stars crashing down

i'm feelin' tragic like i'm marlon brando
when i look at my china girl
i could pretend that nothing really meant too much
when i look at my china girl

i stumble into town just like a sacred cow
visions of swastikas in my head
plans for everyone
it's in the white of my eyes

my little china girl
you shouldn't mess with me
i'll ruin everything you are
i'll give you television
i'll give you eyes of blue
i'll give you a man who wants to rule the world

and when i get excited
my little china girl says
oh baby just you shut your mouth
she says... shh

oh little china girl

space oddity

ground control to major tom
take your protein pills and put your helmet on

ground control to major tom
commencing countdown, engines on
check ignition and may god's love be with you

ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five
four, three, two, one, liftoff

this is ground control to major tom
you've really made the grade
and the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

this is major tom to ground control
i'm stepping through the door
and i'm floating in a most peculiar way
and the stars look very different today

for here
am i sitting in a tin can
far above the world
planet earth is blue
and there's nothing i can do

though i'm past one hundred thousand miles
i'm feeling very still
and i think my spaceship knows which way to go
tell me wife i love her very much... she knows

ground Control to major tom
your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
can you hear me, major tom?
can you...

here am i floating round my tin can
far above the moon
planet earth is blue
and there's nothing i can do

starman

goodbye love
didn't know what time it was the lights were low oh how
i leaned back on my radio oh oh
some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
then the loud sound did seem to fade a ade
came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase ha hase
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 ho
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 a ight
if we can sparkle he may land tonight a ight
don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

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

man who sold the world

we passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
although i wasn’t there, he said i was his friend
which came as some surprise i spoke into his eyes
i thought you died alone, a long long time ago

oh no, not me
i never lost control
you’re face to face
with the man who sold the world

i laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
i searched for form and land, for years and years i roamed
i gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
we must have died along, a long long time ago

who knows? not me
we never lost control
you’re face to face
with the man who sold the world

under pressure

umm boom bah day
umm bah boom bah bay day

pressure, pushing down on me
pressing down on you, no man asks for
under pressure
that burns a building down
splits a family in two
puts people on streets

umm bah bah bay
ea day da

it's the terror of knowing
what this world is about
watching some good friends
screaming let me out
pray tomorrow takes me higher
pressure on people
people on streets

day
umm... Buh da bah
o-kay!

chippin' around
kick my brains 'round the floor
these are the days
it never rains but it pours

ea doe bay dup
ea da doe bah bup
ea doe bup
bay lup

people on streets
ea da dea da day
people on streets
ea da dea...

it's the terror of knowing
what this world is about
watching some good friends
screaming let me out
pray tomorrow takes me higher-higher-high...

pressure on people
people on streets

turned away from it all
like a blind man
sat on the fence but it don't work
keep coming up with love
but it's so slashed and torn love
insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking

can't we give ourselves one more chance?
why can't we give love that one more chance?
why can't we give love give love give love?
give love

cause love's such an old fashioned word
and love dares you to care
for the people on the edge of the night
and love dares you to change our way
of caring about ourselves

this is our last dance
this is ourselves under pressure
under pressure

pressure

let's dance

let's dance
let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues
let's dance, to the song they're playin' on the radio
let's sway, while colour lights up your face
let's sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space

if you say run, i'll run with you
and if you say hide, we'll hide
because my love for you
would break my heart in two
if you should fall
into my arms
and tremble like a flower

let's dance
let's dance, for fear your grace should fall
let's dance, for fear tonight is all
let's sway, you could look into my eyes
let's sway, under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

and if you say run, i'll run with you
and if you say hide, we'll hide
because my love for you
would break my heart in two
if you should fall
into my arms
and tremble like a flower

let's dance
let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues
let's dance, to the song we're playing
let's sway
let's sway, under the moonlight, this serious moonlight
let's dance
let's
let's sway
let's dance

life on mars

it's a god-awful small affair
to the girl with the mousy hair
but her mummy is yelling "no"
and her daddy has told her to go
but her friend is nowhere to be seen
now she walks through her sunken dream
to the seat with the clearest view
and she's hooked to the silver screen
but the film is a saddening 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 amerika's tortured brow
that mickey mouse has grown up a cow
now the workers have struck for fame
cause lennon's on sale again
see the mice in their million hordes
from ibeza to the norfolk broads
rule britannia is out of bounds
to my mother, my dog, and clowns
but the film is a saddening 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?

changes

oh yeah
mm
still don't know what i was waiting for
and my time was running wild
a million dead-end streets and
every time i thought i'd got it made
it seemed the taste was not so sweet
so i turned myself to face me
but i've never caught a glimpse
of how the others must see the faker
i'm much too fast to take that test

ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
don't want to be a richer man
ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
just gonna have to be a different man
time may change me
but i can't trace time

i watch the ripples change their size
but never leave the stream
of warm impermanence
so the days float through my eyes
but stil the days seem the same
and these children that you spit on
as they try to change their worlds
are immune to your consultations
they're quite aware of what they're going through

ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
don't tell them to grow up and out of it
ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
where's your shame
you've left us up to our necks in it
time may change me
but you can't trace time

strange fascination, fascinating me
ah changes are taking the pace i'm going through

ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
oh, look out you rock 'n rollers
ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(turn and face the strange)
ch-ch-changes
pretty soon now you're gonna get older
time may change me
but i can't trace time
i said that time may change me
but i can't trace time

ziggy stardust

oh
oooh yeah
ah
ziggy played guitar, jamming good with weird and gilly
and the spiders from mars. he played it left hand
but made it too far
became the special man, then we were ziggy's band

ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
like some cat from japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
he could leave 'em to hang
they came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan

so where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
just the beer light to guide us
so we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

oh
ooh oh

ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
the kids were just crass, he was the nazz
with god given ass
he took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

making love with his ego ziggy sucked up into his mind
like a leper messiah
when the kids had killed the man i had to break up the band

oh yeah
ooooooo
ziggy played guitaarrrrrr
