Song of the Day #4,027: ‘Your Song’ – Ellie Goulding

Happy Birthday to my father, who turns 76 today! Last year I posted a Frank Sinatra video to honor my dad’s 75th birthday, so I have little confidence that this year’s Random Weekend selection will live up to that.

But let’s spin the wheel and see what the Random iTunes Fairy has in mind for my father.

OK… a cover of Elton John’s classic ‘Your Song’ by English pop singer Ellie Goulding. He could have done far worse.

Indeed, how wonderful life is with my dad in the world… enjoy!

[Verse 1]
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

So excuse me forgetting
But these things I do
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

[Chorus]
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 now you’re in the world

[Verse 2]
If I was a sculptor
But then again no
Or a girl who makes potions in a traveling 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

Ohh

[Chorus]
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 now you’re in the world
