    My FI is in love with Elton John. For his Birthday I got tixs to the concert and almost screamed like a little girl, hahaha. Anyways we cant decide on a song however I know he really wanst this one. Could this be a first dance song. Attached are the lyrics and a youtube video.



    Music by Elton John
    Lyrics by 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

    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

      I think that's a beautiful song....I love the version in Moulin Rouge. You should check it out, but if your FI loves Elton John, you probably wouldnt want the Moulin Rouge versoin

                  He isnt a fan of the Moulin Rouge's version. I like it but seems a bit too slow for me but Elton's is a bit more speedy :).

                      I love this song! We were going to use it as well, but decided on a different one.
                      I love Elton!
