“Rocket Man” includes some of our favorite lyrics of all time.

Basically, Elton John can do no wrong when he writes a narrative song. His melancholy lyrics for “Rocket Man” make the listener feel equally in touch with both the loneliness of space and the thrill:

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
