SPACE ODDITY – DAVID BOWIE
                            
Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and
Put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may
God's love be with you

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most-a peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here…am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do


Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead
There's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you here…am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do
