Elton John - "Roy Rogers Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Sometimes you dream

Sometimes it seems

There's nothing there at all

You just seem older than yesterday
And you're waiting for tomorrow to call

You draw to the curtain

And one thing's for certain

You're cozy in your little room
The carpet's all paid for

God bless the TV

Let's go shoot a hole in the moon

And Roy Rogers is riding tonight

Returning to our silver screens
Comic book characters never grow old

Evergreen heroes whose stories were told
Oh the great sequin cowboy

Who sings of the plains
Of roundups and rustlers
And home on the range

Turn on the T.V.
Shut out the lights

Roy Rogers is riding tonight

Nine o'clock mornings
Five o'clock evenings

I'd liven the pace if I could
Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese

But complaining wouldn't do any good

Lay back in my armchair
Close eyes and think clear

I can hear hoofbeats ahead

Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop

While the wife and the kids are in bed
