Elton John - "Rocket Man I Think It's Going To Be A Long Long" lyrics

- Elton John/Bernie Taupin

I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
Zero hour nine a.m.
It's lonely out in space
Till touch down brings me round again to find
On such a timeless flight

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
And all this science I don't understand
And there's no one there to raise them if you did
In fact it's cold as hell

It's just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man
And I think it's gonna be a long long time...
