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
Till 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

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...

    General Commenti knowwwwwwww it's a elton john song... BUT, i just adore (i hate that word, blah) the cover that ryan adams does... it's amazing. on my version that i d/l it says 'ryan adams and adam duritz' but i can't even hear adam... is this really both of them? my favorite part is the very first 3 lines.. the way he says "high" WOW. -sigh-
