Passing Thought of Little Interest 4

The track 'Slip Away' from David Bowie's Heathen album should really have been the third of his songs about Major Tom, after Space Oddity and Ashes to Ashes and instead of the pretty poor Hello Spaceboy.

Just switch Uncle Floyd for Major Tom in the chorus and the lyric fits perfectly - wonder if that was the original intention?

Don't forget
to keep your head warm
Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
Watching all the world
and war torn
How I wonder where you are
Sailing over
Coney Island
Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
We were dumb
but you were fun, boy
How I wonder where you are
