A Song for You !
Some songs are wonderful.
And can be ” Your Songs ” too.
Here is one !
|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 liveIf 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 youAnd you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s doneI 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 worldI 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 onSo 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
|“Your Song” is a ballad composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin.It originally appeared on John’s self-titled second album (1970).The song was released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to “Take Me to the Pilot”. Both received airplay, but “Your Song” was preferred by disc jockeys and replaced “Take Me to the Pilot” as the A-side, eventually making the top ten on both the UK and US charts.In 1998, “Your Song” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2004 the song was placed at number 137 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. It was John’s first pop hit and certified Platinum by RIAA in December 2012.
The instrumental focus is on John’s Leon Russell-influenced piano work, along with acoustic guitar, Paul Buckmaster’s string accompaniment, and a shuffling rhythm section.
