The Lyrics

This is not meant to be funny. It is a tribute to Captain Tom who, in England, at the age of 100, raised almost £33,000,000 for the NHS. He died two days ago.

This is Earth to Captain Tom,
This is Earth to Captain Tom,
Time to recognise just everything you've done.
This is Earth to Captain Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, lights are on (five, four, three)
All the world's in mourning and at one with you (two, one)

Message from the world to Captain Tom,
It's hard to put in words,
We're in awe of just how much you went and raised,
And from all of us we thank you and give praise.

We all owe a debt to Captain Tom
For brightening our lives,
He was such an inspiration to us all,
As we learn to put our backs against the wall.

But now
All the world is deep in mourning,
Everywhere on Earth.
Hearts will heave a sigh
As they say their last goodbye.

We will all remember Captain Tom,
In our different ways,
With the things that he achieved, we're all in awe,
And his legacy will live for evermore.

From us all to Captain Tom,
With one accord we'll sing this song:
We remember Captain Tom
We remember Captain Tom
We remember Captain Tom

And now
Here we are counting all our blessings,
Far across the globe,
Captain Tom has gone
But his name lives on and on.
