Major Tom by Peter Schilling 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
Running 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

Four, three, two, one
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 commandsThis is my home I’m coming home”

Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Coming home

Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Coming home

Earth below us
Drifting, falling
Floating weightless
Coming, coming
