Ziggy Stardust (Live 1973)

by Jacques Brel

Oh yeah

[Verse 1]
Now Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And The Spiders from Mars
Well he played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man
Then we were Ziggy's Band

[Verse 2]
Ziggy really sang
Screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan
Oh he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
Well he came on so loaded man
Well hung, snow white tan

[Chorus 1]
So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us
So we b*tched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?

Oh yeah!

[Verse 3]
Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were Voodoo
The kids was just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
But he took it all too far
But boy could he play guitar

[Chorus 2]
Making love with his ego (Oh, yeah)
Ziggy sucked up into his mind (Ah)
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed a man
I had to break up the band

Oh yeah

Now Ziggy played guitar

[Audience Applause]
