David Bowie - Space oddity
Tekst en muziek: David Bowie
(1969)








Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on



Ten, nine, eight, seven
Ground Control to Major Tom
Six, five, four, three
Commencing countdown, engines on
Two, one, liftoff
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 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 hear me, Major Tom
Can you hear me, Major Tom
