Arranged for a ukulele medley. 

G      G/f#            Dm/F          E7                  Am
It's a god-awful small affair to the girl with the mousy hair
         Am/G             D/F#                               G
But her mother is yelling "No" and her father as told her to go
          G/f#                  Dm/F
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
        E7                       Am
as she walks through her sunken dream
        Am/G                  D/F#
To the seat with the clearest view
and she's hooked to the silver screen
          Bb+                Gm
But the film is a saddening bore
            Ab                   Eb
For she's lived it ten times or more
           G7                   Cm          Eb
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on

  C         F                   G
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall
 Am      Fm                    G  Gm                  Dm
Oh man! look at those cavemen go,    it's a freakest show
Fm                   C      F                    G
Take a look at the Lawman, beating up the wrong guy
Am       Fm                     G Gm                          Dm
Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know   he's in the best selling show
Fm                Am   C+  Am7  D7  F  Gsus4  D
Is there life on Mars?

D                       F#m  D                       F#m
Ground control to Major Tom Ground control to Major Tom:
Bm        Bm7/A             E7
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
D                       F#m   D                             F#m
Ground control to Major Tom: Commencing countdown engine's on
Bm       Bm7/A          E7
Check ig-nition and may God's love be with you

D                               F#m                          G
This is ground control to Major Tom, you've really made the grade!
         Gm             D/F#                   G     
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear, 
         Gm                D/F#            G
now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

G                  G/f#    Dm/F          E7                  Am
It's on Amerika's tortured brow Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
        Am/G                    D/F#                            G
Now the workers have struck for fame Cause Lennon's on sale again
          G/f#                  Dm/F
See the mice in their million hordes
       E7                   Am
From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads
       Am/G                D/F#
Rule Brittania is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog and clowns
          Bb+                Gm
But the film is a saddening bore
           Ab                 Eb
`Cause I wrote it ten times before
           G7            Cm       Eb
It's about to be writ again As I ask you to focus 'cuz

C                               E7                             F
This is Major Tom to ground con-trol, I'm stepping through the door
        Fm              C/E           F   
And I'm floating in the most peculiar way 
        Fm              C/E         F
and the stars look very different today
