Elton John - "Gulliver Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Gulliver's gone to the final command of his master
And the seasons can change all the light from the grey to the dim
But the light in his eyes will see no more bright
His watery eyes had washed all the hills with his laughter

As the sheep that he locked in the pen
There's four feet of ground in front of the barn
But now it lies empty so cold and so bare
That's sun baked and rain soaked and part of the farm
Gulliver's gone but his memory lies there
By passing the doors of his life was a stage I remember

And in later years he would cease to bare teeth to a stranger
For sentiment touched him as cyclamen holds him
And later men came from the town
Who said clear the child this won't take a while
And Gulliver's gone with the dawn
