And I think it’s going to be a long, long time

William Shatner spoofs the 1972 hit song “Rocket Man” (written by Elton John & Bernie Taupin & sung by John) at the Science Fiction Awards in 1978. Only Shatner can pull this off in his impeccable narrative style. Ironic also that for an actor most famous for his role as the Captain of an adventures & exploratory crew, he is singing this song about a lonely astronaut in space who misses the Earth & his family.
