Elton John - Your song
Tekst: Bernie Taupin / Muziek: Elton John
(1970)






It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
Don’t have much money, but boy, if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live



If I was a sculptor, ha, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you



And you can tell everybody: this is your song
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in the words
How wonderful life is, while you’re in the world



I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well, a few of the verses, well, they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on



So, excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
You see, I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen



And you can tell everybody: this is your song
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in the words
How wonderful life is, while you’re in the world



I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in the words
How wonderful life is, while you’re in the world
