ODISEA ESPACIAL (based on "Space Oddity" written by David Bowie)

Ground Control: Ground control to major Tom
Tom: Yes!
Ground Control: Ground control to major Tom
Tom: Yes, I AM here!
Ground Control: Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Tom: Tano's mother
Ground Control: (Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
Tom: Yes, I hear you, I hear you
Ground Control: (Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you...
Tom: ....AAAAAAAAY!!!!
I'm going down, there's no short cut

Ground Control: This is ground control to major Tom, answer if you are OK
If you dare to finish this mission
Open the door and go out to the exterior

Tom: Attention ground control, this is Tom
Tom: I'm going to try to go out.

Ground Control: Communicate us how are your palpitations
Tom: I communicate you that I am aaarhhg..(gasps)..od.

Ground Control: Please, don't be impertinent
Tom: I know, the mess from the president.

Ground Control: Attention, attention Commander Tom, go out now and tell us what you see
Tom: I see dust, dust, I mean, Commander Tom to Earth
I can't see the Earth, can't see nothing because I have my mask upside down
Now I can see through one eye, the right one, I think.
Ground Control: Spreak clearly, spreak clearly
Tom: I spreak clearly, now I spreak clearly
Now I can see with my both eyes
I'm see something floating next to me
Oh, it's the Spanish Peseta
To my left is the French Frank, it is also floating
Oh, watch out! The dollar is going down like a meteorite!
The Sterling Pound is also going down, and even faster!
Be careful with the Portuguese Escudo, it seems it is going down too

Ground Control: Keep informing us, keep informing us.
Tom: Up there I see a tiny light
It's the Sweet Planet, a sugar price tag is attached to it
It is so high far away from the oil prices.

Ground Control: Attention Commander, look down and tell us what you see.
Tom: I see a mob, an unemployed mob, probably the people from SEAT (car manufacturer).
Near by there are like two light bulbs
Perhaps two factories burning
It seems to me you people in Spain are going to be without car this year, I foresee everybody walking

Ground Control: Attention, attention
Tom: Yes?
Ground Control: Communicate, communicate
Tom: Careful, this thing is moving, the rope falls down!
AAAAYYYYY!!
