ATELIER LANGUES VIVANTES

Rocket man Elton John

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...
