Whenever You're Ready (We'll Go Steady Again)

Album: Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player (reissue) (1973)
  • I lived in a tenement six floors above
    I lent you my records and I lent you my love
    But you left me on the weekend without a by-your-leave
    That's a dirty and a low-down trick
    My folks all think you're mean

    But I don't mind, that's kind of nifty
    You always set those break-ups in the movies
    And just like a light honey you put me out
    Now I'm gonna do my best
    To get you back in the nest you came from

    You can erase me if you want to
    Turn your back in other men
    But whenever you're ready
    Honey, we'll go steady again

    It's nasty without you in my little room
    I miss you like crazy, please come back soon
    I was joking with those things I said
    I couldn't have been thinking
    If you don't come back I think I'll crack
    Just like my old ceiling Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
