Rocket Man (i Think It's Going To Be A Long, Long Time) Lyrics

by Elton John

She packed my bags last night, pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And Im gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Its lonely out in space, on such a timeless flight

And I think, its gonna be a long, long time
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
Im not the man they think I am at home
Oh, Im a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

And I think, its gonna be a long, long time
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
Im not the man they think I am at home
Oh, Im a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

Mars aint the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact its cold as hell
And theres no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science, I dont understand
Its just my job five days a week, a rocket man, oh rocket man

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

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

And I think, its gonna be a long, long time
Its gonna be a long, long time
I think, its gonna be a long, long time
Its gonna be a long, long time, oh

Long, long time, gonna be a long, long time
Its gonna be a long, long time
Gonna be a long, long time
Oh, I think, its gonna be a long, long time, oh yeah
