  (Miss 2)x32


(Gx2) Ziggy played guitar, (Bmx2) jamming good with Weird and (Cx2)Gilly,
And the spiders from Mars.
(Dx2) He played it left (Gx2)hand
But made it too
(Emx2)far
Became the
(Ax2)special man, then we were (Cx2)Ziggy's band


(Gx2) Ziggy really sang, (Bmx2)screwed up eyes and screwed down (Cx2)hairdo
Like some cat from Japan,
(Dx2) he could lick 'em by (Gx2)smiling
He could leave 'em to
(Emx2)hang
'Came on so
(Ax2)loaded man, well hung and (Cx2)snow white tan.

(A) So (G)where were the spi(Fx2)ders,
(A) while the (G)fly tried to break(Fx2) our balls
(A) With just the (G)beer light to (Fx2)guide us,
So we
(Dx2)bitched about his fans and should we (Emx2)crush his sweet hands?

(Gx2)Ziggy played for time, (Bmx2)jiving us that we were voo(Cx2)doo
The kid was just crass,
 (Dx2)

He was the (Gx2)nazz, with God given (Emx2)ass
He took it
(Ax2)all too far but boy could he (Cx2)play guitar

When the
