Thank you my friend SGT (Join to see) for posting the music video of Sir Elton Hercules John CH Kt CBE (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight) performing his ballad "Your Song" on his second appearance on Top Of The Pops which aired on January 14th 1971. This was just one week before the song became his first-ever entry on the UK Singles Chart.

For comparison here is a duet

Your Song written by Elton John, Bernard J P Taupin
Lyrics
It's a little bit funny
This feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money, but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, ha
But then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song, and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody
This is your song
It may be quite simple, but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind
That I put down in the words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses, well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind
While I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting
But these things I do
You see I've forgotten, if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is, what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody
This is the song
It may be quite simple, but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind
That I put down in the words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind
That I put down in the words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world"
