Your Song

About Your Song

"Your Song" is a song composed and performed by English musician Elton John with lyrics by his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin. It originally appeared on John's eponymous second studio album (1970). The song was recorded at Trident Studios in London in January 1970 and released in the United States in October 1970 as the B-side to "Take Me to the Pilot". Both songs received airplay, but "Your Song" was preferred by disc jockeys and replaced "Take Me to the Pilot" as the A-side, eventually making it to number eight on the Billboard chart. The song also peaked at number seven on the UK Singles Chart, as well as charting in the top 10 in several other countries. "Your Song" was first released by American rock band Three Dog Night in March 1970 on their third studio album, It Ain't Easy. John was an opening act for the band at the time and allowed them to record it. They did not release it as a single as they wanted to let John, then an upcoming artist, have a go with it. 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", as well as in its 2010 list. A demo version was included in John's 1990 box set album To Be Continued. The song has been covered by a number of artists, including Ellie Goulding, whose version reached number two on the UK Singles Chart in late 2010, and Lady Gaga. The song was also covered by Ewan McGregor in the 2001 musical film Moulin Rouge! and by Taron Egerton in the 2019 film Rocketman.

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 
Oh  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
