ELTON JOHN


Your Song Lyrics

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, 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 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

I think the meaning is very simple, person love's another with all their heart, doesn't have a lot of money to spend so writes these beautiful lyrics to show his love, I've been an Elton John fan since I was a teenager and I got married at 17 and I'm still married 35 years later and we've never had money but he gave me two beautiful children who grew up to give me five beautiful grandchildren but even without money I wish he could tell me in words how he felt. He didn't need to write me a song because he's NO Elton John but the words would have gone a long way.

I absolutely love this song! My boyfriend sang this to me once and I fell in love with Elton John. And Randi, is your last name King? If so, I think I might know you.

Larry Campbell said the words to me and Bernie, and Bernie wrote them down, leaning on the car in my driveway.
