    I think about him and have tried to get tickets to his shows when he comes to Seattle. I love Elton John.

    Do I think abotu Elton John.......hmmmmmmmmm I think the right way to approach it is....

    What Would Buck Dharma Do?

    I think Love Lies Bleeding is a rockin song

    Back in the 70's....Elton was my idol. I bought a piano and took music lessons because of his inspirations. I knew every word to his songs back then. Seems like when singers leave and come's never the same....although I still like him....but he's low on my list now. Maybe if I listened to more of what he has done recently...I'd feel different. As a person....I think he's a contancorous little spoiled acting dickweed with a smart mouth.

    I'd have to agree with you about him now Gumby. But I still love his music.


    It's a human sign
    When things go wrong
    When the scent of her lingers
    And temptation's strong

    Into the boundary
    Of each married man
    Sweet deceit comes calling
    And negativity lands

    Cold cold heart
    Hard done by you
    Some things look better baby
    Just passing through

    And it's no sacrifice
    Just a simple word
    It's two hearts living
    In two separate worlds
    But it's no sacrifice
    No sacrifice
    It's no sacrifice at all

    Mutual misunderstanding
    After the fact
    Sensitivity builds a prison
    In the final act

    We lose direction
    No stone unturned
    No tears to damn you
    When jealousy burns

    Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters

    And now I know
    Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say
    I thought I knew
    But now I know that rose trees never grow in New York City

    Until you've seen this trash can dream come true
    You stand at the edge while people run you through
    And I thank the Lord there's people out there like you
    I thank the Lord there's people out there like you

    While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
    Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
    Turn around and say good morning to the night
    For unless they see the sky
    But they can't and that is why
    They know not if it's dark outside or light

    This Broadway's got
    It's got a lot of songs to sing
    If I knew the tunes I might join in
    I'll go my way alone
    Grow my own, my own seeds shall be sown in New York City

    Subway's no way for a good man to go down
    Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
    And I thank the Lord for the people I have found
    I thank the Lord for the people I have found

    I used to think that New York City
    Fell from grace with God
    And innocence abroad
    Waged a war for the underdog
    When the snow falls
    And Central Park looks like a Christmas card
    I just looked beyond the bagman
    And the madness that makes this city hard

    I heard a basketball
    Somewhere out beyond a chain link fence
    Inner city prisoners
    Argue for the right of self-defense
    But there's a fast break
    And every work of art wakes something in the soul
    Just focus on the brush strokes
    And the bouquets that the dancers hold

    Spanish Harlem still sounds good to me
    Yeah Mona Lisa's getting older
    Standing in the shadow of Miss Liberty
    While I walk along the west side
    Down through Little Italy
    Searching for the city that
    That took away the kid in me

    Only when I see a little middle aged plump woman with a hair-net, blue rinse and buff colored rainmac.


  • gumby

    That was kinda rough Big T...I know, but he can really be a cocky guy. He had a rough childhood as you might know, and perhaps he's a bit angry inside. just reminded me how much I still like the guy. Sacrafice was a beautiful song and done superbly as usual by the Eltmeister.

    *goes into his secret elton room and starts praying to the cocky bastard*


  • gumby

    If any Seattle festers are watching this thread...I promise I'll do an Elton song on the Karaoke machine their getting.
