The fox is dead in the garden The hedges are on fire in the country lanes And all I wanna do is get out of the rain An autumn day, an autumn day
My daughter's asleep in the garden The leaves are on fire in the country lanes And all I wanna do is get out of the rain An autumn day, an autumn day
I'm done with the world and it's done with me All I wanna do is get up and leave Time falls into the garden I'm on my knees

David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
