    It's called "Major Tom (Coming Home)" by Peter Schilling

    Standing there alone
    the ship is waiting
    all systems are go
    are you sure?
    control is not convinced
    but the computer
    has the evidence
    "no need to abort"
    the countdown starts

    watching in a trance
    the crew is certain
    nothing left to chance
    all is working
    trying to relax
    up in the capsule
    "send me up a drink"
    jokes Major Tom
    the count goes on

    4 3 2 1
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    calling calling home...

    second stage is cut
    we're now in orbit
    stabilizers up
    runnning perfect
    starting to collect
    requested data
    what will it effect
    when all is done
    thinks Major Tom

    back at ground control
    there is a problem
    go to rockets full
    not responding
    "hello Major Tom
    are you receiving
    turn the thrusters on
    we're standing by"
    there's no reply

    4 3 2 1
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    calling calling home...

    across the stratosphere
    a final message
    "give my wife my love"
    then nothing more

    far beneath the ship
    the world is mourning
    they don't realize
    he's alive
    no one understands
    but Major Tom sees
    now the life commands
    this is my home
    I'm coming home

    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming home...
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming home...
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming coming home...
    home.....
    Them that can, do; them that can't... memorize Artist and Title
