Lyrics for Major Tom Songs

Lyrics for Major Tom songs

Songs by David Bowie, Peter Schilling, and Shiny Toy Guns

Space Oddity lyrics by David Bowie

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

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you

Spoken:
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift-off

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 my 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….

“ am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.?

Major Tom by Peter Schilling [and copied by Shiny Toy Guns for their version] (English lyrics)

Standing there alone,
the ship is waiting.
All systems are go.
“Are you sure?”
Control is not convinced,
but the computer
has the evidence.
No need to abort.
The countdown starts.

Watching in a trance,
the crew is certain.
Nothing left to chance,
all is working.
Trying to relax
up in the capsule
“Send me up a drink.”
jokes Major Tom.
The count goes on…

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
calling, calling home…

Second stage is cut.
We’re now in orbit.
Stabilizers up,
runnning perfect.
Starting to collect
requested data.
“What will it affect
when all is done?”
thinks Major Tom.

Back at ground control,
there is a problem.
“Go to rockets full.”
Not responding.
“Hello Major Tom.
Are you receiving?
Turn the thrusters on.
We’re standing by.”
There’s no reply.

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
calling, calling home…

Across the stratosphere,
a final message:
“Give my wife my love.”
Then nothing more.

Far beneath the ship,
the world is mourning.
They don’t realize
he’s alive.
No one understands,
but Major Tom sees.
“Now the light commands
this is my home,
I’m coming home.”

Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
coming home…
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
coming, coming
home…
home….

Major Tom by Peter Schilling (German lyrics)

Gründlich durchgecheckt steht Sie da
und wartet auf den Start , Alles klar.
Expirimenten streiten sich um ein paar Daten.
Die Crew hat dann nach ein paar Fragen,
doch der Countdown läuft.

Effektivität bestimt das Hendeln
Mann verläßt sich blind auf den andern
Jeder weiß genau was von ihm abhängt,
jeder is im Streß , Doch Majer Tom
macht einen Scherz
Dan hebt er ab und !

Völlig losgelöst von der Erde
schwebt das raumschiff völlig schwerelos

Die Erdanziehungkraft ist überwunden
Alles lauft perfekt schon seit Stunden
Wissenschaftliche Experimente , doch was nützen die an Ende denkt sich Major Tom

Im Kontrollzentrum da wird man panisch
Der Kurs der Kapsel der stimt ja gar nicht
Hallo Major Tom können Sie hören,
Woll’n Sie das Projekt den so zerstören ,doch er kannn nichts hörn
er schwebt weiter

Völlig losgelöst von der Erde schwebt das raumschiff völlig schwerelos

Die Erde schimmert blau
Sein letzter Funk komt : Grüßt mir meine Frau
Und er verstummt

Unten trauern noch die Egoisten,
Major Tom denkt sich wenn die wüßten
mich führt hier ein licht durch das All,
das kennt ihr noch nicht , ich komme bald
Mir wird kalt

Vóllig losgelöst von der Erde schwebt das raumschiff völlig schwerelos
