Ziggy played guitar, jamming good
With Weird and Gilly and The Spiders From Mars
He played it left hand but made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes
And screwed down hairdo, like some cat from Japan
He could lick 'em by smiling, he could leave 'em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan

So where were The Spiders while The Rats
Tried to break our balls? Just the beer light
To guide us, so we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands, oh

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass, he took it all too far
But boy, could he play guitar, making love with his ego

Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah, when the kids
Had killed the man, I had to break up the band
Oh, oh yeah, ooh, now Ziggy played guitar
