Rocket Man

This song is by Me First And The Gimme Gimmes and appears on the album Have A Ball (1997).

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
Until touchdown 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 kid
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

I think it's gonna be a long, long time (6 times)

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
