Enchantment Passing Through Lyrics by Elton John 



Enchantment Passing Through by Elton John


Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Elton's solo version is unreleased

A few more days and we'll be home in glory
Already they'll be getting out the flags
With memphis high _______ 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 goverment and politics come to me
As naturally as i now talk to you


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 secret lack of confidence is safe enough with you


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 secret lack of confidence is safe enough with you
