Elon Musk Writes New Version of Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ After Iconic Musician Leaves Twitter


Shortly after famous signer-songwriter Elton John announced his departure from Twitter, Elon Musk said he wrote a “new, personal, and introspective version” of the musician’s hit song ‘Rocket Man’ as sung from Elon’s perspective. Here are the lyrics and accompanying pictures that were posted online for mere seconds before quickly being taken down:

Drafted his final tweet last night, that’s right
Zero hour 5:01 AM
.

And I’m gonna get high
as a kite, again.

I miss Elton so much, He was like a 4th wife.
It’s lonely in this Twitter place.

I fired everyone one night!

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til reality brings me down to find.
I’m just a man who thinks he knows it all
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a Twitter man.


Twitter man!
Tweeting up a storm – I have no home.

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til reality brings me down to find.
I’m just a man who thinks he knows it all
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a Twitter man.


Twitter man!
Tweeting up a storm – I have no home.

Mars is the kind of place I’d send my kids.
Like me, it’s distant and cold as hell.
And I won’t notice no one’s there to raise them,

I’m a dick.

And all this SpaceX science,
I don’t understand.
I pretend to do my job seven days a week.
A Twitter man!
Twitter man!

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til reality brings me down to find.
I’m just a man who thinks he knows it all.
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a Twitter man.

Twitter man!
Tweeting up a storm – I have no home.

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
‘Til reality brings me down to find.
I’m just a man who thinks he knows it all.
Oh, no, no, no
I’m a Twitter man.

Twitter man!
Tweeting up a storm – I have no home.

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
I’m so smart, I now know how to rhyme

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
Hey, has anyone around here seen Grimes?
