Elton John - "Planes Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

(demo song from 1975 recorded for Rod Stewart)

Oh Jessie I'd like to be
Serving Pernot and Kalua with cream
One of those men upon the screen
With American ladies and a cafe in Paris

You can see it I know
All the doors have been closed in my face
And the drinks at the cashbar

Run a mile or more from this place
Tell me, oh Jessie, is it true what they
And the runway's a home for my silver-red plane
And oh Jessie won't you look at the planes
That there's a capital G in the name of the game

And won't you look at the planes
Jessie ain't those wings just fine
Riding down the skyway
Don't it make you want to fly someday
Tied to my job with time to kill

Do I still bear the traces of old Don Quixote
Why friend am I so still
