Ashes To Ashes (acoustic cover)

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no don't say its true
They got a message from the Action Man
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following

The shrieking of nothing is killing me
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis
And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But the planet is glowing

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

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
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
I want an axe to break the ice
I want to come down right now

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

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