Lyrics of Ashes to Ashes

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I heard a rumour 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 to love"
Sordid details following

The shreiking of nothing is killing
Just 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...but the planet is growing

CHORUS Ashes to Ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out on heaven's 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, woh-o-oh

Want an axe to break the ice
Want to come down right now


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


'Ashes to Ashes' is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the 'Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)' album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. The lyrics revisit Bowie's Major Tom character from 'Space Oddity', which he referenced once again in 1996 with 'Hallo Spaceboy'. Bowie has said that with 'Ashes to Ashes' he was, 'wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it'.
