starman lyrics – david bowie

didn’t know what time it was and the lights were low
i leaned back on my radio
some cat was layin’ down some rock ‘n’ roll ‘lotta soul,
he said

then the loud sound did seem to fade
came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
that weren’t no dj that was hazy cosmic jive

[chorus]
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
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

if we can sparkle he may land tonight
don’t tell your poppa or he’ll get us locked up in fright

[chorus (x2)]

la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
