Rocket Man

In the style of

Elton John

Lyrics

she packed my bags
last night pre-flight

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
till touchdown
brings me 'round
again to find

i'm not the man
they think
i am at home
oh no no no
i'm a rocket man
rocket man
burning out his fuse
up here alone

and i think
it's gonna be
a long long time
till touchdown
brings me 'round
again to find

i'm not the man
they think
i am at home
oh no no no
i'm a rocket man
rocket man
burning 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
till touchdown
brings me 'round
again to find

i'm not the man
they think
i am at home
oh no no no
i'm a rocket man
rocket man
burning out his fuse
up here alone

and i think
it's gonna be
a long long time
till touchdown
brings me 'round
again to find

i'm not the man
they think
i am at home
oh no no no
i'm a rocket man
rocket man
burning 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
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

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