"Your Song" as written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin and Wu Huim....
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 traveling show
Oh 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
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 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

    General CommentEwan sang it a lot better than Elton, he didn't twitch his eyebrow so much for a start :) But it's a lovely song. I know how wonderful it is to have a song written/dedicated to you and this is truly a brilliant songg and deserves to be a classic

    General CommentWhen I watched Moulin Rouge for the first time, I basically knew it was a musical set in an early 1900s club. I didn't expect Ewan to have such an AMAAAAAAZING voice! He should sing more!
