[Incomprehensible]

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'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 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'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"
