Pre Flight STS-114

If you can: WATCH THE SHUTTLE'S RETURN TO FLIGHT on any reputable news network, possibly even Fox News, or check out Nasa's website.

What could be more appropriate?: (And please check out the link in the title GOOD SHTUFF!)

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 time-less flight

And I think it's gonna be
A long long time
'Til touchdown 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 ain't the kind of place
To raise your kids
In fact
It's cold as hell
And there's no one there
To raise them if you did

And all this science
I don't understand
It's just my job
Five days a week
A rocket man
A rocket man

And I think it's gonna be
A long long time
'Til touchdown 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
