Elton john is an amazing composer of lyrics he wants you to know he's tired of getting high ("i miss the earth so much i miss my wife, it's lonley out in space.")

Ridiculous song, trippy as hell, goofy, sad
And simply awesome,
Tell me you haven't sung the s**t out of the chorus, and you my friend, would be a liar, not a rocket man
Don't forget Bernie Taupin he is the amazing lyricist behind Sir Elton.
