rocket man (live) lyrics – neil diamond

she packed my bags last night, preflight
was zero hour, nine a.m.
and i’m gonna be high
high as a kite by then

i miss the earth so much
i miss my lady
it’s lonely out in sp*ce
on such a time, time
such a timeless flight

and i think it’s gonna be a long, long time
till touchdown brings me round again
to find i’m not the man
they think i am at home
oh no, oh no, oh no
i’m a rocket man
rocket man…

mars ain’t the kind of place
you want to raise your kids
in fact, it’s cold as h*ll
and there’s no one there
that can raise them, if you did
and all the science i don’t understand
it’s just my job five days a week
i’m a rocket man
oh, oh yeah
just a rocket man

and i think it’s gonna be a long, long time
till touchdown brings me around
to find i’m not the man
they think i am at home
oh no, oh no, oh no
i’m a rocket man
rocket man…
rocket man…
