Verse 1 

Gm Gm
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,

Chorus

F F Dm Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky

Am Am C C
He'd like to come and meet us

C7 C7
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.

F F Dm Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky

Am Am C C
He's told us not to blow it

C7 C7
'Cause he knows it all worthwhile,


He told me,

Bb Bb Bbm Bbm F F D7 D7
"Let the children lose it, let the children use it,

Gm Gm C C
Let the children boogie."

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 a fright.
