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
Till touch down brings me 'round again to find
I?m not the man they think I am at home
Oh, I?m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

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, I?m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of 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, oh rocket man

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, I?m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

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, I?m a rocket man
Rocket man, I'm burning out of fuse up here alone

And I think, it?s gonna be a long, long time
It?s gonna be a long, long time
I think, it?s gonna be a long, long time
It?s gonna be a long, long time, oh

Long, long time, gonna be a long, long time
It?s gonna be a long, long time
Gonna be a long, long time
Oh, I think, it?s gonna be a long, long time, oh yeah

Two things: I think some are being a bit literal on the fuse issue, and Bernie Taupin wrote all of his lyrics anyway (then).

I checked out his website for discography and lyrics and the line is burning out his fuse up here alone, like Brian said.

First of he's gay not married. Only fireworks rockets have fuses, and this was early in his career so he might have been on a little too much LSD. Good song though, I like it alot.

it already has been a long long time. I hope it's not still going to be another long long time. My mother said it's going to be a long long time before she lets me drive her car. I did nothing bad.
