Starman Lyrics

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 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’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 2

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’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

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

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la…

There are some very unique chords played in ‘Starman’, the Bbadd#11 being what stands out the most.

‘Starman’ is in the key of F and there are more little odd movements than the Bbadd#11 to discover.

For example, I’ve even managed to sneak in an open position Gm chord into this one guitar arrangement.
