Roy Rogers


Musik von Elton John
Text von Bernie Taupin
© 1973 Dick James Music Limited

Sometimes you dream,
Sometimes it seems
There's nothing there at all.
You just seem older
Than yesterday,
And you're waiting
For tomorrow to call.

You draw to the curtains,
And one thing's for certain
You're cozy in your little room
The carpet's all paid for,
God bless the T.V.
Let's go shoot a hole in the moon.

And Roy Rogers is riding tonight,
Returning to our silver screens.
Comic book characters never grow old,
Evergreen heroes whose stories were told,
Oh the great sequin cowboy
Who sings of the plains,
Of roundups and rustlers,
And home on the range,
Turn on the T.V.
Shut out the lights -
Roy Rogers is riding tonight.

Nine o'clock mornings
Five o'clock evenings
I'd liven the pace if I could.
Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese
But complaining wouldn't do any good.

Lay back in my armchair
Close eyes and think clear
I can hear hoofbeats ahead
Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop
While the wife and the kids are in bed.
