Cool grass blowing up the pass
Don't you know I'm feeling mellow
I love your Roman nose, the way you curl your toes baby
Make me feel so mellow

It's the same old feeling I get when you're stealing
Back into my bed again
With the curtains closed and the window froze
By the rhythm of the rain

You make me mellow, you make me mellow
Rocking smooth and slow
Mellow's the feeling that we get
Watching the coal fire glow

You make me mellow, I make you mellow
Wrecking the sheets real fine
Heaven knows what you sent me Lord
But God this is a mellow time

Going down to the stores in town
Getting all the things we need
Don't forget the beer my little dear
It helps to sow the mellow seed

And it can't be bad, all the love I've had
Coursing through life
Down in the pass where the wind blows fast
And mellow's feeling right

Nice one. A segue suggestion: “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel.
This album plays in my shop at least once a month. Never gets old.
This is a sweet song: I enjoy a lot of Elton John's catalog, but many of songs have angsty elements. This one feels happy and relaxed, like slowly waking up Sunday morning, snuggled up to the one you love. Thanks Bill!
Elton in the early days, brilliant art. Not to forget Bernie's lyrics.
