bid dipper lyrics – elton john

cigarettes and carrot juice
and get yourself a new tattoo
for those sleeveless days of june

i’m sitting on the cafè xeno’s steps
with a book i haven’t started yet
watching all the girls walk by…

could i take you out?
i’ll be yours without a doubt
on that big dipper

and if the sound of this it frightens you
we could play it real cool
and act somewhat indifferent

and hey june why’d you have to come
why’d you have to come around, so soon?
i wasn’t ready for all this nature
the terrible green green gr*ss
and violent blooms of flowered dresses
and afternoons that make me sleepy

but we could wait awhile
before we push that dull turnstile
into the p*ssage

the thousands they have tread
and others sometimes fled
before the turn came

and we could wait our lives
before a chance arrives
before the p*ssage

from the top you can see monterey
or think about san jose
though i know it’s not that pleasant

and hey jim, kerouac
or so he likes to say.
lucky b*st*rd

he’s sitting on the cafe xeno’s steps
with a girl i’m not over yet
watching all the world go by

“boy you’re looking bad
did i make you feel that sad?
i’m honestly flattered.”

but if she asks me out,
i’ll be hers without a doubt
on that big dipper

cigarettes, and carrot juice
and get yourself a new tattoo
for those sleeveless days of june…

i’m sitting on the cafè xeno’s steps…
i haven’t got the courage yet
i haven’t got the courage yet
i haven’t got the courage yet
