Elton John - "Here and There" lyrics

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I don't have much money but boy if I did

I'd buy a big house where we both could live
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
My gift is my song and this one's for you
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
And you can tell everybody this is your song
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words

It may be quite simple but now that it's done

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross

It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
