Songs for when you know you're going to bust out of the game

This reording is a bit unusual. Sinatra made the song famous, but this guy–who sounds like the Sinatra of the early 40s–wrote it. Enjoy.

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you “Here am I floating 'round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do”

I remember the night I was born
My shoes were soggy and my pants were torn
But no time to worry about none of these things
My mouth was wide open and I just had to sing
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck is all I have
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck, hard luck man
My daddy told me when I was young
Hey now, little boy, don’t you go wrong
‘Cause look at my life, all the trouble I’ve had
Shows what you get when you got to be bad
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck is all I have
Hard luck, keep on trucking
Hard luck, hard luck man
Ooh-ah, my story’s so sad
Ooh-ah, poor boy so bad
‘Cause I was foolish and I wouldn’t heed
I knew my crazy ways were bound to succeed
Nobody’s fault, and I won’t pass the buck
It was my stupidity and a little
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck is all I have
Hard luck, keep on trucking
Hard luck, hard luck man
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck is all I have
Hard luck, keep on trucking
Hard luck, hard luck man
Hard luck, keep trucking
Hard luck is all I have
Hard luck, keep on trucking
Look out, hard luck, hard luck man

So perfect! One of Bowies more (most?) confused periods and he comes up with this?

I’m developing some small amount of respect for you!!!

ETA: You really should listen to the Rubber Band Song!

It kind of describes the complete confusion that I suffer whenever I am faced with a deck of cards!

She said there is no reason and the truth is plain to see but I wandered through my playing cards and I would not let her be … and although my eyes were open they might just have well have been closed …
