Ashes to Ashes

No not dust to dust as you may think. Ive been listening to a lot of David Bowie recently and I have been inspired by this song which I sort of ignored from his collection. It is almost a sequel to his 1969 hit Space Odditty (which youve all heard….you know….Ground Control to Major Tom?.....yeah thats right….) Here are the lyrics. They are so bizarre…..

Do you remember a guy thatís been
In such an early song
Iíve heard a rumour from ground control
Oh no, donít say itís true

They got a message from the action man
Iím happy, hope youíre happy too
Iíve loved all Iíve needed love
Sordid details following

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of jap girls in synthesis and i
Ainít got no money and I ainít got no hair
But Iím hoping to kick but the planet itís glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know major tomís a junkie
Strung out in heavenís high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
Iíll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
Iím stuck with a valuable friend
Iím happy, hope youíre happy too
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know major tomís a junkie
Strung out in heavenís high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done
Youíd better not mess with major tom
