[ David Bowie ]

Didn't know what time it was, 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 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 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
