Your Song

Lyrics

play It's a little bit   this feeling inside
play I'm not one of those who can   hide
play I don't have much money but boy if I  
play I'd buy a big house where we   could live

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

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

play I sat on the   and kicked off the  
play Well a few of the   well
play they've got me quite  
play But the sun's been quite  
play while I   this song
play It's for people like you that keep it   on

play So excuse me   but these things I do
play You see I've forgotten
play if they're green or they're  
play Anyway the thing is what I really  
play Yours are the   eyes I've ever seen

Taupin wrote the song's lyrics after breakfast one morning on the roof of 20 Denmark Street, London, where John worked for a music publishing firm as an office boy, hence the line "I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss".

The lyrics express the romantic thoughts of an innocent person.
