LYRICS VIDEO

song by David Bowie


Ground control to major Tom 
Ground control to major Tom 
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on 
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight) 
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four) 
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) 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 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/david+bowie/space+oddity_20036711.html ] 
This is major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door 
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way 
And the stars look very different today 
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 circuits 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 sitting in my tin can far above the Moon 
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do
