Rocket man

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…

I’m a rocket man

Rocket man

Burnin’ out his 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 his 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

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

Long, long, time

Long, long, time

Ah, no, no, no…

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no…
