Sailors fighting in the dance hall

"Life on Mars" 1973 from David Bowie on Vimeo.


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 America'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 Ibiza 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?


David Bowie, Life on Mars?.
