Elton John - "Snow Queen" lyrics

Written by Elton John, Davey Johnstone, Kiki Dee and David Nutter
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Released as a UK B-side in 1976

You remind me so much
Of her when you're walking
Where everything's perfect
And nobody's talking

You're a cushion uncrumpled
You're a bed that's unruffled
If I was bone china,
Bone china around


And I believe that the snow queen
Lives somewhere in the hills
She's got the world on a string
Like white wine when it's chilled


Arms are spread like icicles
Upon a frosted cake
The snow queen reigns in a warmer land
Behind the cold black gates


Your talons are tested
They're polished and they're shaved
Your talents are wasted
On men of no taste


But how about proving
That passion means more than
A wardrobe of gowns, TV ratings,
A fragile waist, and a name
