Song: Moonage Daydream
Band: David Bowie
Rec:  Ziggy Stardust


D (5th fret)  (no notes)
              I'm an alligator,

F# (9th fret) (no notes)                B
              I'm a mama-papa comin' for you
A                   E                                     G
I'm a space invader, I'll be a rock 'n' rollin' bitch for you
                     D                                    F#
Keep your mouth shut, you're sqauwkin' like a pink monkey bird
                                     B       A     E (1st fret)
and I'm busting up my brains for the words

(chorus)
G          D              E (1st fret)
Keep your 'lectric eye on me babe
G        D             E (1st fret)
Put your ray gun to my head
G          D                   E (1st fret)
Press your space face close to mine, love
D (5th fret)                       E (7th fret)
   Freak out in a moonage daydream oh! yeah!

(chords same as first verse)
Don't fake it baby, lay the real thing on me
The church of man, love, is such a holy place to be
Make me baby, make me know you really care
Make me jump into the air

(repeat chorus)

BREAK
