Elton John - "I Saw Her Standing There" lyrics

Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Released as a UK single in November, 1974

She was just seventeen
And you know what I mean
And the way she looked was way beyond compare
I couldn't dance with another
When I saw her standing there

Well she looked at me
and I could see
That before too long I fell in love with her
I couldn't dance with another
When I saw here standing there


Well my heart went boom
As I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine


Oh we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long I feel in love with her
I couldn't dance with another
When I saw here standing there
