"Space Oddity" as written by and David Bowie....
Ground control to major Tom
Ground control to major Tom

Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may Gods
(Blastoff) 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
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 hear am I sitting in my tin can far above the moon
Planet earth is blue and there's nothing I can do
