She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine AM
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 back around to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no, I'm a rocket man
A rocket man, burning up his fuse up here alone

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as ice
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
I'm a rocket man

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me back around to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no, I'm a rocket man
A rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
