Lyrics:

She packed my bag last night, pre-flight
Zero hour, nine a.m.
And I’m gonna be high as a kite by then

I’ll miss the Earth so much, I’ll 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 touch down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
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 touch down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
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, rocket man

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

It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
It’s gonna be a long, long time
