Elton John - "Rocket Man" lyrics

She packed by bag 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
To raise your kids
Mars ain't the kind of place

And there's no one there to raise them
In fact, it's cold as hell
If you did
And all this science
It's just my job
I don't understand
Five days a week
Rocket Man
'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find

A Rocket Man
And I think it's gonna be a long, long, time
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
Burnin' out his fuse
Up here alone
Rocket man
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

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, noAh, no, no, no...
