The Weight Of The World (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin I'm weary and I'm staying up late And the rain hits my roof so hard You know I'm no longer thirty These days I'm happy to play One or two hands of cards I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing Disturbing the peace I've found Fortune and fame is so fleeting These days I'm happy to say I'm amazed that I'm still around And the weight of the world is off my back When we fell, we got up And crawled out the cracks Excuse me if I take some comfort in that Happy today, happy to play With the weight of the world off of my back Humidity hangs like a curtain Oh, it fogs up my glasses sometimes You know I've still got my eyesight These days I'm happy to see A sunset instead of a line And the weight of the world is off my back When we fell, we got up And crawled out the cracks Excuse me if I take some comfort in that Happy today, happy to play With the weight of the world off of my back There's a long list of names That I don't recall Even though my memory's good The rain washed away The lemons and weeds When the weight of the world weighed more than it should I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing Disturbing the peace I've found Fortune and fame is so fleeting These days I'm happy to say I'm amazed that I'm still around And the weight of the world is off my back When we fell, we got up And crawled out the cracks Excuse me if I take some comfort in that Happy today, happy to play With the weight of the world off of my back Happy today, happy to play With the weight of the world off of my back
