Elton John — Rocket Man (Live) 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 touch down brings me 'round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh, I’m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

And I think, it’s gonna be a long, long time
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh, I’m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/elton-john-rocket-man-live-lyrics.html ]
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, oh rocket man

And I think, it’s gonna be a long, long time
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, I’m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

And I think, it’s gonna be a long, long time
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, I’m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

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

Long, long time, gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
Gonna be a long, long time
Oh, I think, it’s gonna be a long, long time, oh yeah
