The Ballad Of Danny Bailey – Elton John

Some punk with a shotgun killed young Danny Bailey
In cold blood, in the lobby of a downtown motel
Killed him in anger, a force he couldn’t handle
Helped pull the trigger that cut short his life
And there’s not many knew him the way that we did
Sure enough he was a wild one, but then aren’t most hungry kids

Now it’s all over Danny Bailey
And the harvest is in
Dillinger’s dead
I guess the cops won again
Now it’s all over Danny Bailey
And the harvest is in

We’re running short of heroes back up here in the hills
Without Danny Bailey we’re gonna have to break up our stills
So mark his grave well `cause Kentucky loved him
Born and raised a proper, I guess life just bugged him
And he found faith in danger, a lifestyle he lived by
A running gun youngster in a sad restless age

Circle Of Life – Elton John

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

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

The Last Song – Elton John

Yesterday you came to lift me up
As light as straw and brittle as a bird
Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall
Just one more whisper of a voice unheard

Tomorrow leave the windows open
As fear grows please hold me in your arms
Won’t you help me if you can to shake this anger
I need your gentle hands to keep me calm

`Cause I never thought I’d lose
I only thought I’d win
I never dreamed I’d feel
This fire beneath my skin
I can’t believe you love me
I never thought you’d come
I guess I misjudged love
Between a father and his son

Things we never said come together
The hidden truth no longer haunting me
Tonight we touched on the things that were never spoken
That kind of understanding sets me free
