Major Tom by Peter Schilling

I'm sure you people have heard this song, I'm nuts for it! The fact that it is about rocket ships adds to my interest, and it's a catchy tune. yes

Anyone know where I can download it without downloading a program or buy it? iTunes has left me high and dry... miffed:

Always liked this song, actually he had a German version of the song first " Major Tom (Vöellig losgelöest)"

"Gründlich durchgecheckt
steht sie da
und wartet auf den Start.
Alles klar.

Experten streiten sich
um ein paar Daten -
Die Crew hat dann noch
ein paar Fragen, doch
der Countdown läuft.

Effektivität
bestimmt das Handeln
Man verlässt sich blind
auf den andern.

Jeder weiss genau
was von ihm abhängt,
jeder ist im Stress,
doch Major Tom
macht einen Scherz.

Dann hebt er ab und

Völlig losgelöst
von der Erde
schwebt das Raumschiff
völlig schwerelos.

Die Erdanziehungskraft
ist überwunden,
Alles läuft perfekt
schon seit Stunden.

Wissenschaftliche
Experimente,
doch was nützen die
am Ende
denkt sich Major Tom.

Im Kontrollzentrum
da wird man panisch.
Der Kurs der Kapsel der
stimmt ja gar nicht.

Hallo Major Tom,
können Sie hören,
woll'n Sie das Projekt
denn so zerstören?
doch, er kann nichts hörn
Er schwebt weiter

Völlig losgelöst
von der Erde
schwebt das Raumschiff
völlig schwerelos.

Die Erde schimmert blau
Sein letzter Funk kommt:
Grüsst mir meine Frau
Und er verstummt.

Unten trauern noch
die Egoisten,
Major Tom denkt sich
wenn die wüssten -,
mich führt hier ein Licht
durch das All,
das kennt ihr noch nicht,
ich komme bald
Mir wird kalt."

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 affect
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 phasers 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 light 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, coming
home...
home.....
