Lyrics: 

Tony went to fight in Belfast
Rudi stayed at home to starve
I could make it all worthwhile as a rock & roll star
Bevan tried to change the nation
Sonny wants to turn the world, well he can tell you that he
tried
I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star
So inviting- so enticing to play the part
I could play the wild mutation as a rock & roll star
I could do with the money
I'm so wiped out with things as they are
I'd send my photograph to my honey- and I'd c'mon like a
regular superstar
I could fall asleep at night as a rock & roll star
I could fall in love all right as a rock & roll star

Lyrics: 

People stared at the makeup on his face
Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace
The boy in the bright blue jeans
Jumped up on the stage
And lady stardust sang his songs
Of darkness and disgrace

Chorus:
And he was alright the band was altogether
Yes he was alright the song went on forever
And he was awful nice
Really quite out of sight (second time: really quite paradise)
And he sang all night long
Femme fatales emerged from shadows
To watch this creature fair
Boys stood upon their chairs
To make their point of view
I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey
Lady stardust sang his songs
Of darkness and dismay

Chorus

Oh how I sighed when they asked if I knew his name

It Ain't Easy (Davies)

Lyrics: 

When you climb to the top of the mountain
Look out over the sea,
Think about the places we have
Where a young man could be.
Then you jump back down to the rooftops,
Look out over the town
Think about all the strange things
Circulating round.
It ain’t easy, it ain’t easy,
It ain’t easy to get your helping
When you’re going down.
Well all the people have got their problems
That ain’t nothing new,
But with the help of the good Lord
We can all pull on through
We can all pull on through.
Get there in the end.
Sometimes it’ll take you right up
And sometimes down again.
It ain’t easy, it ain’t easy,
It ain’t easy to get your helping
When you’re going down.
Satisfaction, satisfaction,
Keep me satisfied.
I got the love of a hoochi-coochi woman,
She’s calling from inside
She’s a calling from inside,
Tryin’ to get to you.
All the woman really wants,
You can give her somethin’ too.
It ain’t easy, it ain’t easy,
It ain’t easy to get your helping
When you’re going down.

Lyrics: 

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 DJ,
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’ll blow our minds,
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’s toid 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.
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’d like to come and meet us
But he thinks he’ll blow our minds,
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’s toid 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.’

Lyrics: 

I’m an alligator
I’m a mama-papa comin’ for you.
I’m the space invader
I’ll be a rock n rollin bitch for you.
Keep your mouth shut
You’re squawking like a pink monkey bird
And I’m busting up my brains for the words.

Keep your electric eye on me babe
Put your ray gun to my head.
Press your space face close to mine love,
Freak out in a moonage daydream,
Oh! Yeah!

Don’t fake it baby
Lay the real thing on me
The church of Man love
It’s such a holy place to be.
Make me baby
Make me know you really care,
Make me jump into the air.

Keep your electric eye on me babe
Put your ray gun to my head.
Press your space face close to mine love,
Freak out in a moonage daydream,
Oh! Yeah!

Keep your electric eye on me babe
Put your ray gun to my head.
Press your space face close to mine love,
Freak out in a moonage daydream,
Oh! Yeah!

Freak Out!
Far out!
In out.
