"Your Song"

(As recorded by Elton John)
ELTON JOHN
BERNIE TAUPIN

It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide, I
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, heh, but then again no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelin' show, oh 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 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 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 words
How wonderful life is, while you're in the world
