Elton John and Bernie Taupin wrote it, but William Shatner did it best. Watch the video now and download the MP3 for future enjoyment.

Thanks to Vasken for pointing out the video.


Here are the lyrics so you can try this yourself at home:

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
Its lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think its 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 aint the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact its cold as hell
And there’s no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I dont understand
Its just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man

And I think its gonna be a long long time…
