And you can tell everybody that this is your song.
Share this with the one you’d like to love. I’ve sung this, too loudly, many a time, in the shower, with an old young lover, on my bicycle.
And you can tell everybody that this is your song and maybe quite simple but now that it’s done hope you don’t mind I hope you don’t mind I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words how wonderful life is now you’re in the world:
Ewan McGregor singing “Your Song” in the film Moulin Rouge. Plácido Domingo lends his voice to this song as well. Moulin Rouge was written by Baz Luhrmann and Craig Pearce. Directed by Baz Luhrmann. “Your Song”, originally recorded by Elton John, was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen
Another Moulin Rouge favorite:
How much for your love? A painful song of betrayal.
