"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 told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile"...

"Say, that's some very nice jewelry that you're wearing. I think it would look great on my night-stand".

O, opening line in a SONG. Sorry, I misunderstood.

Michael, that's a great Bowie song. But isn't that the chorus? I think the opening goes something like "Didn't know what time it was the lights were low-oh-oh/ I leaned back on my radio-oh-oh"

Yes it does D-man.

Then there's:

"I was up on the 11th floor and watching the cruisers below"

I saw her standing on the corner

I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue
He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh,
"If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
I'll saw you all in half!"
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He turned on the bandsaw (and then, and then...!)

Doodah, regarding David Bowie's "Starman", you are quite right... but it's the chorus that gives the song it's full meaning. I liked it so much I had to put it in. I guess I cheated a bit on that one and you caught it! My face is red. ha.ha.

I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I
Can't relax
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire...

from "Psycho Killer" from the Talking Heads
----------

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself-Well...How did I get here?

from "Once In A Lifetime" by the Talking Heads
