Spacetime Oddity

Lyrics by David Bowie and Music by Pink Floyd

Lyrics Adapted by C. Scott Davis

Ground Control to Major Tom, we're receiving
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Commencing countdown now, it's time to turn your engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

Ground Control to Major Tom, this time you've really made the grade
All the papers asking questions, want to know whose shirts you wear
And now it's finally time, for you to leave the capsule
Major Tom the world is waiting, go on now if you dare

This is Major Tom calling Ground Control, are you listening?
I'm leaving the capsule, stepping through the door
There's something about the stars today, they look different
And I'm starting to float in a most peculiar way

Here I'm sitting in a tin can, drifting high above the world
Planet Earth is very blue, and there is nothing I can do
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles I'm feeling very still
My spaceship knows which way to go, tell my wife I love her so

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead there's something wrong
Can you hear me Major Tom?
This is Ground Control, can you hear me Major Tom?

Here I am outside my tin can
floating far above the moon
Planet Earth is very blue
And there's not a thing that I can do
