by 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 street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad…”
You can read the lyrics in full here. Elton John’s classic was as ever split between himself composing the music and Taupin writing the lyrics.
