[Verse 1]
She packed my bags last night, pre-flight
Zero hour, 9 AM.
And I'm gonna be high
As a kite by then
(WOOOH!)
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight
But nobody home calling my name

[Chorus]
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 Noooo No

I'm a Rocket Man
Eh, eh, I'm a Rocket Man

[Verse 2]
And all this science, I don't understand
That's just my job five days a week
You don't wanna be high
High like me

[Chorus]
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 Noooo No

I'm a Rocket Man
Eh, eh, I'm a Rocket Man (Ooooohoh)
Yea, I'm a Rocket Man (Oooooohoo)
I'm a Rocket Man

[Verse 3] [Bun B]
Houston we got some problems (Problems)
Don't know how ya boy gon' solve 'em (Solve 'em)
The command center just won't link
And the Com Stats down, I don't know what to think (Think)
Happened in a blink sorta like the Big Bang
How could somethin' so small turn into a big thang
One small move turned into a big change
No bass, no treble, all mid-range
And it seems so strange but it all makes sense
My back against the wall and I'm behind the fence
Situations always get so tense
And I just want us to still be friends
But we just argue, fuss and fight
And we scream and yell and we cuss all night
And it seems that we always so uptight
Think that it's time that I book this flight
Took out my mic but I feel so weak
So much to say but I just can't speak
Gotta be done but it kill me to do it
Came as surprise but we always knew it
So I'm takin' this trip, no plane, no car
Might be close, and it might be far
But later than soon, when you lookin' at the moon
I'll be next to it shinin' like a star

[Chorus]
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 Noooo No

I'm a Rocket Man
