Jacob Hoggard – Space Oddity lyrics

Ground control to Major Tom,
(10, 9, 8)
Ground control to Major Tom,
(7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2)
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on.
(1, liftoff)

This is Major Tom to ground control.
I'm stepping through the door,
And I'm floating in the most peculiar way,
And the stars look very different today-ay-ay.

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......

I'm floating 'round my tin can.
Far above the moon.
Planet Earth is blue,
And there's nothing I can do.
