ROCKET MAN

Elton John

 

She packed my bags last night, preflight


zero hour, nine a.m.


and I'm gonna be high as a kite by then


I miss the earth so much I miss my wife


it's lonely out in space


on such a timeless flight



 

and I think it's gonna be a long, long, time


'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find


I'm not the man they think i am

at home
ah, no no no


IÕm a rocket man


rocket man


burnin' out this fuse up here alone



 

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids


in fact, it's cold as hell


and there's no one there to raise them if you did


 

And all this science I don't understand


it's just my job five days a week


a rocket man


rocket man



 

And I think it's gonna be a long, long, time


'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find


I'm not the man they think I am at home


ah, no no no



 

And I think it's gonna be a long, long, time


'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find


I'm not the man they think I am at home


ah, no no no...


I'm a rocket man


rocket man


burnin' out this fuse up here alone



and i think it's gonna be a long, long, time


and i think it's gonna be a long, long, time etc
