"First Episode at Hienton" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I was one as you were one
And we were two so much in love forever
I loved the white socks that you wore
But you don't wear white socks no more; now you're a woman
I joked about your turned-up nose
And criticized your school-girl clothes
But would I then have paced these roads to love you
For seasons come and seasons go
Bring forth the rain the sun and snow
Make Valerie a woman
And Valerie is lonely

No more to roam on the snow hills of Hinton
Undecided with the guardians of the older generation
A doormat was a sign of welcome
In the winter months to come
And in the summer laughing
Through the castle ruins we'd run

For the quadrangle sang to the sun
And the grace of our feeling
And the candle burned low as we talked of the future
Underneath the ceiling
There were tears in the sky
And the clouds in your eyes were just cover
For your thighs were the cushions
Of my love and yours for each other
The songs still are sung
It was fun to be young
But please, don't be sad where 'ere you are

I am who I am
You are who you are
Now Valerie's a woman
Now Valerie's a woman
Now Valerie's a woman

    General CommentThis is a song about first love, the loss of virginity and wistful memories when that first love has long passed. Valerie starts the song in schoolgirl clothes but becomes a woman as her 'thighs were the cushions'. However, 'seasons come and seasons go' thus we all grow older and 'now Valerie's a woman' no longer with her first love who tells her 'not to be sad where' she is for life moves on.
