Reminiscing Elton John’s ‘Your Song’

Throwback late 80’s, my sister and a friend caught me watching rather listening intently to Elton John’s music video with the TV monitor covered. I did not offer any explanation on my actions since I was so carried away with the beautiful melody. The friend curiously uncovered the TV monitor by removing the bond paper  taped on it and lo and behold – Elton John was wearing a Donald Duck costume 🙂

Of course, I did not mind the outlandish attire. I just wanted to savor the music without distractions. The music was irresistibly beautiful. No wonder why Filipinos love his songs so much.

Your Song

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

Songwriters
JOHN, ELTON / TAUPIN, BERNIE
