Happy 69th Birthday, Sir Elton!

madrid-400w

I remember when I was young
Listening to Elton was so much fun
With Greatest Hits I got my start
Soon all his music had a place in my heart

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was growing up with our “Lion King” of rock
While others came and went through the years
He’s still standing making all of us cheer

Well, the Rocket Man rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can’t keep still
I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Oh lawdy Mama those concert nights
With Elton and the Band up in lights
The Rocket Man rocking is out of sight

The years went by and his music’s still alive
Elton’s still touring, giving fans such a ride
And now he’s got a beautiful family
David, Elijah and Zachary

But nothing will ever kill the thrills we got
Burning up to our “Lion King”of rock
Learning fast as the years went past
That our Rocket Man was (thankfully) made to last

Well, the Rocket Man rocking is something shocking
When your feet just can’t keep still
I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Oh lawdy Mama those concert nights
With Elton and the Band up in lights
The Rocket Man rocking is out of sight

I remember when I was young
Listening to Elton was so much fun
For forty years I have followed him
And that’s the story of the Captain and the Kim

 

(Apologies to Bernie for borrowing your words and song structure, but I wanted to wish Elton a Happy Birthday in my own way).
