Holiday Inn – Elton John

Boston at last and the plane’s touching down
Our hostess is handing the hot towels around
From a terminal gate to a black limousine
It’s a ten minute ride to the Holiday Inn

Boredom’s a pastime that one soon acquired
Where you get to the stage where you’re not even tired
Kicking your heels till the time comes around
To pick up your bags and head out of town

Slow down Joe, I’m a rock and roll man
I’ve twiddled my thumbs in a dozen odd bands
And you ain’t seen nothing till you’ve been
In a motel baby like the Holiday Inn

Oh I don’t even know if it’s Cleveland or Maine
With the buildings as big and rooms just the same
And the TV don’t work and the French fries are cold
And the room service closed about an hour ago

Shoot Down The Moon – Elton John

Oh no I don’t want it
You can take it all
I’ll put my money where my mouth is
Put your suitcase in the hall

Oh you robbed me blind
Of what little hope remained
You put a gun to my head
A bullet through my brain

You can’t shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

You can’t shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

Just as long as you’re around
We live on borrowed time
I’ll put my money where my mouth is
You’re guilty at the scene of the crime

I never say more than I need
The mystery runs deep
The dangers buried below
The secrets that you keep

Part Time Love – Elton John

Part time love is bringing me down
‘Cause I just can’t get started with you my love
Did I hear you saying that I’m too hard hearted
Wipe those stars from your eyes
And you’ll get quite a surprise
Because you’ll see everybody’s got a part time love

You’ve been seen running around
There’s not much I don’t hear of and still you try
Telling me all the things I must stay clear of
Don’t tell me what to do
When you been doing it too
Because you, me and everybody’s got a part time love

Falling, I’m falling can’t get free
Baby if you keep on stalling
Oh how can I make you see
That you, me and everybody needs a part time love

Part time love
I seem to be pulling in the wrong direction
With you my love
Whatever I do you raise the same objection
I’ve got someone at home
But she’s got a love of her own
Because you, me and everybody got a part time love

I’m waiting, I’m waiting all the time
And it’s getting so frustrating
Love well it ain’t no crime
Because you, me and everybody needs a part time love
And oh you, me and everybody’s got a part time love
And oh you, me and everybody needs a part time love
You, me, everybody got a part time love

Rocket Man – Elton John

She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I’m gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It’s lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it’s cold as hell
And there’s no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I don’t understand
It’s just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time…
