Lyrics

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song?
I heard a rumor from ground control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the action man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy, too
I've loved all I needed love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing has given us
Pictures of Jap girls in synthesis
And I ain't got no money, and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick, for this planet keeps glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again, I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wings are following me
Oh no, not again

And 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, wo wo
I want an axe to break the ice
I wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
You better not mess with Major Tom
