Rocket boy, rocket boy, rocket boy

Didn't see, I had no idea, I never heard it before
And I said, "What good are you?
Yeah, well, Why don't I? Is the question of the year"
You used to be my favorite toy
But what happened to my rocket boy?

Rocket boy, where are you gonna land?
I said, "Go, don't stop it, go, don't stop it, how we all understand"
You used to be my pride and joy
Now you're just my rocket, rocket boy

They don't know, my friends
We got off again
How 'm I gonna get myself to sleep?
I've got stains on my sheets and my nails are torn down to the bone

Wouldn't it be nice to have an ordinary girlfriend?
Laughing 'bout it makes it real
It makes it happen to me
Well, I can reach you

Didn't see, I had no idea, I never heard it before
"Well," I said, "what good are you?
Why don't I, no sense of fear?"
You used to be my favorite toy
But now you're just my little rocket boy
(Rocket boy)
My rocket boy
(My rocket boy)

Rocket boy, when are you gonna land?
(Rocket boy, yeah)
I said, "Go, don't stop it, go, don't stop it, now may all understand"
(Rocket boy, yeah)
I said, "Rocket boy, when are you gonna land?"
(Rocket boy)

I said, "Rocket boy, they just don't understand"
(Die is cast and the dice are rollin')
(I'm feelin' like shit 'cause she's feelin' like gold)
You used to be my pride and joy, my boy
You had me
