Ashes To Ashes Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie
Album: Ashes To Ashes

Ashes To Ashes
David Bowie
Changes Bowie

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've needed love
sordid details following

the shrieking of nothing is killing
just pictures of jap girls in synthesis
and i ain't got no money and and i ain't got no hair
but i'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing aglow aglow
ashes to ashes funk to funky
we know major tom's a junky
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 never did anything out of the blue
want an axe to break the ice
want to come down right now

ashes to ashes funk to funky
we know major tom's a junky
strung out on 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

I have never seen little green wheels following me and I am sorry that he had to see them. He must have been really strung out if this is at all based on personal experience. Very trippy. He is a genius!

Never a big Bowie fan but this is a great freaking song--one of the TOP 50 of all time! This is a song about heroin addiction--the valuable friend is his "fix" or needle. Crashing is the "all time low" as "little green wheels" are puddles forming ina spoon while cooking heroin.

Not sure how one who loves rock isnt a Bowie fan, but OKAYYYYY- the valuable friend is the junk itself, little green wheels are like a monkey on the back. One of my faves.
