Do you remember a guy that's been In such an early song I've heard a rumour from Ground Control Oh no don't say its true They got a message from the Action Man I'm happy, hope you're happy too I've loved all I've needed love Sordid details following The shrieking of nothing is killing me Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair But the planet is glowing Ashes to ashes funk to funky We know Major Tom's a junkie Strung out in heavens high Hitting an all time low Time and again I tell myself I'll stay clean tonight But the little green wheels are following me Oh no, not again I'm stuck with a valuable friend I'm happy hope you're happy too One flash of light but no smoking pistol I've never done good things I've never done bad things I've never done anything out of the blue I want an axe to break the ice I want to come down right now Ashes to ashes funk to funky We know Major Tom's a junkie Strung out in heavens high Hitting an all time low My mam said to get things done You better not mess with Major Tom
