[G] Ziggy played guitar,
[Bm] Jamming good with Wierd and [C] Gilly
And the Spiders from [D] Mars.
He played it left [G] hand, but made it too [Bm] far
Became the [C] special man, and we were [D] Ziggy's band.
 
[G] Ziggy really sang,
With [Bm] screwed up eyes and screwed down [C] hairdo
Like some cat from [D] Japan.
He could lick 'em by [G] smiling, he could leave 'em to [Bm] hang.
He came on so [C] loaded man, well hung and [D] snow-white tan.
 
[A] But [G] where were the [F*] spiders, [G]
[A] While the [G] fly tried to [F*] break our balls. [G]
[A] Just the [G] beer light to [F*] guide us.
And so we [G] bitched about his fans and should we [D] crush his sweet hands.

[G] Ziggy played for time,
[Bm] Jiving us that we were [C] voodoo
And the kids was just [D] crass.
He was the [G] nazz with God-given [Bm] ass.
He took it [C] all too far but boy could he [D] play guitar.
 
[A] Making [G] love with his [F*] ego, [G]
[A] Ziggy [G] sucked up in-[F*]-to his mind [G]
[A] Like a [G] leper mes-[F*]-siah. [G]
When the [G] kids had killed the man I had to [D] break up the band.

Ziggy played gui-[G]-tar
