LYRICS OF “Space Oddity”

Space Oddity – David Bowie

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
Can I please get back inside? if I may
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
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

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows what I must do
And I think my life on Earth is nearly through

Ground Control to Major Tom
You’re off your course
Direction’s 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 tin can?
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do”

Ooooh
Do-doo
Do-doo-doo
