"Please" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Desensitized
The young will grow to
Not feel much of anything
And we just don't seem to care

Dollar signs
We need more footage
Cash in on the tragedy
Why aid in the repair

Please promise me today
That when it's through you'll feel
Oh oh oh oh oh feel oh oh oh oh oh
Please promise me today
That when it's through you'll feel
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Please. Please oh. Please yadadadadadaye

Movie camera
Strike a pose
We must have something special
Look they're dying on their knees

I'll give you my heart
Then you can
Sell it for the revolution
And ride that bitch for free

Please promise me today
That you will stop and feel
Oh oh oh oh oh feel oh oh oh oh oh
Please promise me today
That you will stop and feel
Oh oh oh oh oh oh shout it out

Please. Please oh. Please yadadadadadaye

Please promise me today
That you will stop and feel
Oh oh oh oh oh feel oh oh oh oh oh
Please promise me today
That you will stop and feel
Ohhhhhhh feel feel

Please. Please oh. Please yadadadadadaye

    My OpinionIt's a pleading wake up call to the listener. Stop and feel, care about what's going on around you, by the end of the day maybe it'll sink in. It's also a criticism of our culture - we're all about image not the substance, and the greed endemic to our society that feeds off suffering, how we're so apathetic and desensitized that it doesn't seem to matter. He's also lashing out at counter-culture movements that get snapped up and commercialized, and in the end lose their hearts to money.
