Lyrics:

Intro:
She packed my bags last night, pre-flight
Zero hour, nine AM.
And I'm gonna be high
As a kite by then.

Verse:
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It's lonely out in space.
On such a timeless
flight.

Chorus X2:
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
Touch down 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.

Fill:
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kid
In fact it's cold as hell.
And there's no one there
To raise them if you did.

Verse:
And all this silence I don't understand
It's just my job five days a week
A rocket man.
A rocket man.

Chorus X2:
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
Touch down 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.

Outro (Starts after last 'rocket man' in above chorus):
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time. X5

End:
I think it's gonna be a long, long time.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
