Slow Down Georgie (She’s Poison) – Elton John

Hey there Georgie got a couple of things to say
One you’re my friend, and two it’s hurting me
Seeing you act this way
But my hands are tied and I can only try to talk you out of a fall
`Cause the reputation of the woman you’re dating’s
About as nasty as the Berlin wall

Slow down Georgie she’s poison
Man you’ve got to watch yourself
She’s gonna get in your head, she’s gonna crawl in your bed
You’re just a stepping stone for someone else

Slow down Georgie she’s poison
She’s just another divorcee
An undercover lover of a hundred
Other little fish in the sea

You better cut her loose before she gets her hooks in you
If you give her the world, and it was covered in pearls
She’d only ask for the moon
She’s got you hypnotised, with her big brown eyes
And a body that could stop a clock
But if you think your face ain’t gonna be replaced
Georgie boy you’re in for a shock

Well it ain’t my job to rain on your parade
But if the chips were down, you’d do the same for me
It’s always been that way
She’s got you paralysed with a pack of lies
About honour and the single girl
And if you buy that line you must be out of your mind
You must be living in another world

Emily – Elton John

The church bells ring out morning glory
When summer bends to the winter’s rage
Emily walks through the cemetery
Passed a dog in an unmarked grave
The old girl hobbles, nylons sagging
Talks to her sisters in the ground
I saw a lie in the mirror this morning
I heard a prophesy all around

And Emily they come and go
The shadows and the distant sounds
But Emily don’t be afraid
When the weight of angels weighs you down

Emily prays to a faded hero
In a little frame clutched to her gown
Hears the voice of promise in his memory
Tonight’s the night they let the ladder down
In a cage sits a gold canary
By a wicker chair and a rosewood loom
As a soul ascends abord the evening
Canary sings to an empty room

And Emily they come and go
The shadows and the distant sounds
But Emily don’t be afraid
When the weight of angels weighs you down

Shooting Star – Elton John

I’m still in love with you oh shooting star
And when I start to wonder where you are
There you are, there you are, shooting star

You may have seen me at the early show
I sat and watched you from the second row
Oh you were mine long ago way back when
Even then we both knew you’d go far oh shooting star

And with the spotlight shining in your eyes
It’s sometimes hard to find your way
But maybe some night you might
Think of me, shooting star

And when that moment comes at last
And you remember who you are
Here I’ll be, shooting star, shooting star
Here I’ll be, shooting star, shooting star, shooting star

Original Sin – Elton John

Oh, it’s carnival night
And they’re stringing the lights around you
Hanging paper angels
Painting little devils on the roof

Oh the furnace wind
Is a flickering of wings about your face
In a cloud of incense
Yea, it smells like Heaven in this place

I can’t eat, can’t sleep
Still I hunger for you when you look at me
That face, those eyes
All the sinful pleasures deep inside

Tell me how, you know now, the ways and means of getting in
Underneath my skin,
Oh you were always my original sin
And tell me why, I shudder inside, every time we begin
This dangerous game
Oh you were always my original sin

A dream will fly
The moment that you open up your eyes
A dream is just a riddle
Ghosts from every corner of your life

Up in the balcony
All the Romeo’s are bleeding for your hand
Blowing theater kisses
Reciting lines they don’t understand
