Elton John - "Dan Dare (Pilot Of The Future)" lyrics

Can you tell me how old Dan might have done it If he'd been here now, holy cow My stars might have been read on the planet Mars Because I don't have foresight to see If we still be together in the twenty first In the twenty first century

He's our flying ace, pilot of the future In an endless space, holy cow My eyes never saw a rocket that was quite that size Because I don't have the energy To be cat and mouse for the champions For the champions of destiny

So long captain Dan I fail to see what motivates your hands Goodbye restless night You know I loved Dan Dare, but I couldn't make his flight So long, so long

Dan Dare doesn't know it He doesn't know it He doesn't know it But I liked the Mekon
