Space Oddity
David Bowie Lyrics


Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, engines on (five, four, three)
Check ignition and may God's love be with you (two, one, liftoff)

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 "Here am I floating 'round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do"

Bowie... dude... did you even know how immortal this song would become?


It's sad ending be damned, this is the song that people think of when it comes to space. This is the song that NASA literally adds to their own videos, like they forget the ending of the song entirely xD .


The point is, I love your music, David. And I get it. You didn't really die, did you? Ziggy just had to go home, that's all.


We're all gonna miss ya, Bowie. You were an inspiration.

R.I.P. You really made the grade Mr. Bowie. You will be missed.

Oblivion productions

Originally his last name wasnt bowie thats the crazy part

David Leakey

Bowie is STILL ALIVE. They moved him to another Planet and lied about his death. I've been to that Planet.

I like anything David Bowie! Have been listening to Bowie since the 70's. Every song will take you to another dimension if you allow it.

It's My Sniff

One of the best songs ever. Makes me feel lost and trapped, yet so alive. Thanks for the upload. R.I.P

Listening to 'Space Oddity' makes me wish David Bowie and The Beatles had collaborated on an album. What an amazing psychedelic journey that would have been with that powerhouse of talent. :)
