poor cow lyrics – elton john

i dwell in the north in the green country,
far i’m here, far i’m here
and i take to my rest at the end of day,
whilst o’erhead pretty stars do play.

and then i dream along,
then i make a song
about everything that i’ve known and felt,
and it makes my sadness melt
then i wake up in the funny old kind of day,
the rain has gone away,
watching the children sing and play
in the garden and the roadway.
up comes a little one singing a song
about a friend she knows called rosie.
off to the greenwood you must go, bring-a me one fine posie.
all of a sudden i’m light as air, i feel sad as a b*tterfly.

oh, i dwell with my pride and my songs and things
wearily, oh so wearily
and i dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
sundaily, whatever she may be.

and then i dream along
then i make a song
about everything that i’ve known and felt
and it makes my sadness melt.
then i wake up in the funny old kind of day,
the rain has gone away
watching the children sing and play
in the garden and the roadway
up comes a little one singing a song
about a friend she knows called rosie.
off to the greenwood you must go, bring-a me one fine posie.
all of a sudden i’m light as air, i feel sad as a b*tterfly.

oh, i dwell in the north in the green country,
far i’m here, far i’m here
and i dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
sundaily, whatever she may be.
and then i dream along,
and then i make a song
about everything that i’ve known and felt,
and it makes my sadness melt
