Lyrics

People stared at the makeup on his face
Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace
The boy in the bright blue jeans
Jumped up on the stage
And lady stardust sang his songs
Of darkness and disgrace

CHORUS
  And he was alright, the band was altogether
  Yes he was alright, the song went on forever
  And he was awful nice
  Really quite out of sight (second time: really quite paradise)
  And he sang all night long

Femme fatales emerged from shadows
To watch this creature fair
Boys stood upon their chairs
To make their point of view
I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey
Lady stardust sang his songs
Of darkness and dismay

CHORUS

Oh how I sighed when they asked if I knew his name

CHORUS
