  • Beau Electric – Life On Mars? lyrics

    It’s a God awful small affair
    To the girl with the mousey hair,
    But her mummy is yelling, “No!”
    And her daddy has told her to go,
    But her friend is no where to be seen.
    Now she walks through her sunken dream
    To the seats with the clearest view
    And she’s hooked to the silver screen,
    But the film is sadd’ning bore
    For she’s lived it ten times or more.
    She could spit in the eyes of fools
    As they ask her to focus on

    Sailors fighting in the dance hall.
    Oh man!
    Look at those cavemen go.
    It’s the freakiest show.
    Take a look at the lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy.
    Oh man! Wonder if he’ll ever know
    He’s in the best selling show.
    Is there life on Mars?

    It’s on America’s tortured brow
    That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow.
    Now the workers have struck for fame
    ‘Cause Rotten’s on sale again.
    See the mice in their million hordes
    From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads.
    Rule Britannia is out of bounds
    To my mother, my dog, and clowns,
    But the film is a sadd’ning bore
    ‘Cause I wrote it ten times or more.
    It’s about to be writ again
    As I ask you to focus on

    Sailors Fighting in the dance hall.
    Oh man! Look at those cavemen go.
    It’s the freakiest show.
    Take a look at the lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy.
    Oh man!
    Wonder if he’ll ever know
    He’s in the best selling show.
    Is there life on Mars?
