Lyrics and Chords

[ Bb/b5 = xx8760 ]

Intro: / Bb/b5 - - - Fmaj7 - - - / 

Hey na na, hey la la

/ Intro /

Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low-ow-ow
I lean back on my radio-o-o
Some cat was laying down some rock'n'roll, "Lotta soul," he said

/ Gm - - - / F - - - / C - C7 - / (First time, / F AbBb /)

Then the loud sound did seem to fa-a-ade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of pha-a-ase
That weren't no DJ, that was hazy cosmic jive

... (Second time, / A - G - /)

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 all worthwhile, he told me
Let the children lose it, let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

/ F - Dm - / Am C / C7 - / :
   / Bb Bbm F D7 / Gm C / Bb - F - C - F - / /

Well I had to phone someone, so I picked on you-ou-ou
Hey that's far out, so you heard him too-oo-oo
Switch on the TV we may pick him on Channel 2

Look out your window I can see his li-i-ight
If we can sparkle he may land toni-i-ight
Don't tell your papa or he'll get us locked up in fright

{Refrain twice}

La la la la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la
{Repeat to fade}

/ Bb - F - C - F - / :
