Tunes Tuesday: Elton John

Elton John has so many wonderfully written songs, I am sure he will appear in this Tuesday Tunes series again, but this week, I am going to feature “Your Song.”

My husband and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary this week and this was the song that was played at both of our weddings. In Baltimore, we used the traditional version of the song. In Argentina, we used the Moulin Rouge version of the song and came out from behind long red curtains to friends and family and bubbles as the opera starts – these are precious memories I will treasure always.

This song is simple, but delivers such a sweet message. “How wonderful life is, while you’re in the world…” I hope you agree.

Your Song
Elton John

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
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

What do you think? What was your wedding song? Does it still hold a special place in your heart or has its power worn off? If you are not married, what would you like to dance to at your wedding if you got married?

I’d love you hear your thoughts. Thank you for reading!
