Hey la la...Hey la la...

Didn't know what time it was, and the lights were low - ow - ow
I leaned back on my radio - o - o
Some cat was laying down some rock 'n' roll, "lotta soul", he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fa - a - ade,
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of pha - a - ase
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 play

I had to phone someone, so I picked on you - ou - ou
Hey, that's far out, so you heard tim too - oo - oo
Switch on the T.V., we may pick him on channel two
Look out your window, I can see his ligh - igh - ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonigh - igh - ight
Don't tell your papa 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

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 play, let the children learn

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

    General CommentThis is a cover of a David Bowie song. It's a great song but it doesn't really belong listed under Dar (as much as I love her).

    General CommentThis is a great sci-fi song and so not like Dar's usual style (probably since it's a cover). This is what it says at the beginning of the song:

    Echo, echo, echo, echo..

    It’s nine minutes till the new millennium
    Earth children have successfully united
    In a partnership for a drug-free planet
    Notably with no socio-political or cultural replacement
    for the drugs they’ve forsaken

    Meanwhile on the 34th floor of Happiness Limited,
    Barton Buck kicks back two xanax
    With some scotch that he was going to give his doorman
    He puts in a call to a newly acquired
    Home thousand-watt radio station
    He has a ticket giveaway for a new multiplex
    At a suburban mall
    There’s no answer

    It’s eight minutes, forty seconds to the new millennium
    And Happiness Limited has lost contact
    with the youth of the world
