    Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
    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 fly 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?

    Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
    The kids was 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

    Ziggy played guitar.

      The song is about Jimi Hendrix, hence the line "He played it left hand"

      The best song from the best album ever. Ziggy is King of Glam - and the 70ies Bowie was the God of Rock.
