Enchantment Passing Through lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Eltons solo version is unreleased

A few more days and well be home in glory
Already theyll 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 soldiers life
If anything Im rather too successful
They made me hand my sword in for a wife

For just because Ive triumphed as a slaver
Brought booty back to egypt by the ton
Of this and every month, Im now the flavor
And scheduled to do things Ive never done

And why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met
A woman who in hours from now Ill 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
Theyll 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 Ill make waves in pastures new
Find goverment and politics come to me
As naturally as I now talk to you

For just because Ive triumphed as a slaver
Brought booty back to egypt by the ton
Of this and every month, Im now the flavor
And scheduled to do things Ive never done

And why should I tell you this, a stranger I just met
A woman who in hours from now Ill 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 Ill certainly forget
Anonymous and undemanding
Enchantment passing through
My secret lack of confidence is safe enough with you
