Words and Music by: Elton John and Tim Rice A few more days and we'll be home in glory Already they'll be getting out the flags With Memphis high motor dormitory For me, I only see a lot of snags The prospect above all I find distressful Is having to give up the soldier's life If anything I'm rather too successful They made me hand my sword in for a wife For just because I've triumphed as a slaver Brought booty back to Egypt by the ton Of this and every month, I'm now the flavor And scheduled to do things I've never done And why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met A woman who in hours from now I'll certainly forget Anonymous and undemanding Enchantment passing through My secrets and my confidence.....are safe enough with you My days out on the field are all but ended They'll put me out to grass which means the throne Bedecked and bejeweled alongside my intended I feel as though my heart is set in stone But maybe I am being far too gloomy Yes, maybe I'll make waves in pastures new Find government and politics come to me As naturally as I now talk to you
