William Shatner’s Rocketman Still Makes Me Laugh

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…

And a different version:
