Don't Go Breaking My Heart

Album: Hit Maker! (1965)
  • La la la la, lalalala la, la la la
    La la la la la la

    One drop of rain doesn't make the sun run away
    Don't go breaking my heart
    One falling leaf doesn't make September in May
    Don't go breaking my heart

    I made a mistake
    Now must you make a mountain out of a grain of sand?
    Don't throw love away because I went astray for a while
    Teach my heart how to smile, oh

    One sad goodbye doesn't mean we can't love again
    Don't go breaking my heart
    My love will last 'till the sky falls down, even then
    You'll remain in my heart

    Come to my arms forever more
    Stay in my arms and give me your love

    La la la la, lalalala la, la la la
    Don't go breaking my heart
    La la la la, lalalala la, la la la
    Don't go breaking my heart Writer/s: Elton John, Bernie Taupin
    Publisher: Universal Music Publishing Group
