Tiny Dancer
(Elton John/Bernie Taupin)
Blue-jean baby,
L.A. lady, seamstress for the band,
Pretty-eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man.
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand,
And now she's in me, always with me, Tiny Dancer in my hand.

Jesus freaks
Out in the streets
Handing tickets out for God;
Turning back she just laughs,
The boulevard is not that bad.

Piano man
He makes his stand
In the auditorium;
Looking on
She sings the songs,
The words she knows,
The tune she hums

But oh,
How it feels so real lying here
With no one near,
Only you, and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly --

Hold me closer, Tiny Dancer
Count the headlights
On the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen,
you had a busy day today.
