The Lyrics

This is about David Bowie's transition from androgynous glamrocker, through soulboy, to intellectual Berlin modernist type in 1977. ;)
Ziggy played guitar
said goodbye to Weird and Gilly
and the Spiders from Mars
He took a high hand
but took it too far
became the solo man;
there was no Ziggy band

Ziggy really tried
screwed up eyes and slicked-down hairdo
like some cat from San Fran
He could dance to the disco
he could do by the gram
came on so cracked-out, man:
Lost mind and midnight tan

So where was the glamrock
when the soul tried to break our balls?
With just the white light to guide us
so we bitched about his aims
and should we crush his campaigns?

Oh...

Ziggy played Berlin
jiving us that we were deeper
than kids of the past
He was the new
with Eno there too
But he took it all too low
look at those cut-ups go!

Making love to "Warszawa"
Ziggy sucked up the Berlin Wall
Like an artiste or poseur
when the press had killed the sound
he had to turn it all 'round!

Oh!

Ooooooooo!

Yeah Ziggy played...
