  • Bowie's in space
    Bowie's in spa-a-hace
    Whatcha' doin' out there, man?

    That's pretty freaky, Bowie
    What's a rock musician doing out in space,man?
    Isn't it cold out there, Bowie?

    You can borrow my Jumper if you want Bowie?

    Does the space cold do funny things to your nipples
    Making them all pointy, Bowie?
    And do you use your pointy nipples as telescopic antennae
    Transmitting data back to Earth?
    (Data back to Earth)

    Bet you do, you freaky old bastard, you.

    Is it lonely out there in space, man?
    Or is there life on Mars?
    Wouldn't that be weird 'cause you wrote that song, "Is There Life on Mars"
    You could write a follow up tune and call it 'And There Is'

    Yes, there is, there is

    Do you have one really freaky sequin space suit, man?
    Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?

    Do you smoke grass out in space, man?
    Or do they smoke astro-turf?

    Receiving transmission from David Bowie's nipple antennae
    Do you read me, Lieutenant Bowie?
    This is Bowie to Bowie,
    Do you hear me out there, man?
    This is Bowie back to Bowie,
    I read you loud and clear, man

    Oh yeah man!

    Your signal's weak on my radar screen,
    How far out are you, man?

    I'm pretty far out

    That's pretty far out, man!

    I'm orbiting Pluto
    I'm drawn in by it's Groovitational
    (Groovitational pull)
    I'm jamming out with the Mick Jagger-nauts

    And they think it's pretty cool man

    Are you OK, Bowie, what was that sound?

    I don't know, man, I have to turn my ship around
    Oh, it's the craziest scene

    I know, I'm picking it up on my LSD screen

    Can you see the Stratosphere ringing?

    To the choir of Afro-nauts singing

    bowie is in space
    bowie [Repeat x6]

    bowie is in space
    bowie [Repeat x6]

    Eenie, ma-ma-meenie mynie mowie
    (Set your phasers on funky)
    Eenie, ma-ma-ma-meenie mynie mowie

    Eenie, ma-meenie, mynie mynie mowie

  • Pepper from Athens, TnOh my god this is so hilarious. I just can't even.
  • Andrew from The Seas Of Cheese, CaThese guys are the best, well, the best as far as comic musicians. Anyway, "Bowie" is a great song, as well as "I Told You I Was Freaky" and "Business Time". But if I have to choose a song to call "the best", it's gotta be "Carol Brown" "If You're Into It" or "Friends"
  • Bailey from Elkmont, Alyeah! like "i told you i was freaky" and "business time" haha those crack me up!
  • E2ggurl from Los Angeles, CaI love 'em too, Trey. I wish there were more songs up to discuss.
  • Trey from Kalamazoo, MtHi Trey.
  • Trey from Kalamazoo, MtI guess I'm the only one who loves this song. Conchords RULE!!!!
