I caught Elton John’s “Rocket Man” on the radio the other day and wondered, as I had before, whether the lyrics referred to “Tucson Aerodrome” or to “2 Zone Aerodrome.” This morning I finally Googled the words to the song. The actual lyrics are:
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone.
Am I the only one who makes this kind of mistake (all the time)?
