Elton John - Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be A Long Long Time) 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
'Til 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
'Til 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, a rocket man

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Til 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
'Til 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

    They do not make songs like this anymore in the music industry and that is beyond sad . Sad songs say so much .

  17. Liam Reynalds

  18. Arthur Victor Souza Gonçalves

    Who came here because Californication ?

  19. greg smith

    I know many people will disagree with me, but that's what's nice about the freedom of speech. I think this song should have been played by NASA or by Mission Control, as a wake up song when we still had the Fantastic shuttle program. I know a lot of people half the comment about a couple words in the song, and compare it to Elton John's lifestyle. Big deal, we are in the 20th century folks. I can remember back in the sixties and seventies when some radio stations would not play country Western songs because of their content. Always keep in mind it's only a song.

  20. Poao Tomoana

    I'm a rocketman

  21. Akp kushkid

    This song has been in the back of my head since I saw the movie months ago. I grew up listening to Elton's music in the 70's and this video brought me to tears! Majid Adin deserves many special accolades for talent and visual storytelling!
