Lyric of the Week / DAVID BOWIE - SPACE ODDITY

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

(Ten, nine, eight, seven,...)
Ground Control to Major Tom
(Six, five, four, three,...)
Commencing countdown, engines on
(Two, one, liftoff)
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

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 circuits 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.

Ahhh che bella! L'hai visto C.R.A.Z.Y.? C'è una scena molto bella in cui il protagonista, truccato da David Bowie, canta quella canzone in camera sua.

@edo: lascia che te lo dica: sei un grande ^___^! E' proprio pensando a C.R.A.Z.Y. che ho deciso di mettere questa canzone ^___*
Sympathy for the Devil già l'avevo messa mesi fa ^____^
