Elton John - "Talking Old Soldiers Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Why hello, say can I buy you another glass of beer
Well thanks a lot that's kind of you
It's nice to know you care
These days there's so much going on
No one seems to want to know
But I know how it feels to grow old
I may be just an old soldier to some

Yeah that's right
You can see me here most every night
You'll always see me staring
Funny I remember oh it's years ago I'd say
I'd stand at that bar
At the walls and at the lights
With my friends who've passed away
And drink three times the beer that I can drink today
Yes I know how it feels to grow old
There goes old man Joe again
Well I may be mad at that I've seen enough
To make a man go out his brains
I know what they're saying son
Well do they know what it's like
To have a graveyard as a friend'
Don't seem likely I'll get friends like that again
'Cause that's where they are boy, all of them
Well it's time I moved off

No one seems to want to know
But it's been great just listening to you
You're right there's so much going on
And I might even see you next time I'm passing through
So keep well, keep well old friend
And have another drink on me
Just ignore all the others you got your memories
You got your memories
