Lyric sheets: Sir Elton Takes Stock

Enough to worm the IIamas

in your stable

Or have Lord Linley knock

you up a table

Enough to buy the bigger

sort of Bentley

Assured that all antiques

will travel gently

Enough to hire an Admirable


To help a knight alighting

from his phaeton

A pension to remunerate

your mater

For sterling service with


A phone in any colour

that you feel

(Not taking up the Friends

and Family deal)

But not enough the

Jeremiah said

To keep your books from edging

to the red

And if this is beyond your comprehension

You realise that it

may affect

your pension?
