Elton John - The Greatest Discovery Songtext

The Greatest Discovery

music by Elton John
lyrics by Bernie Taupin
album Elton John 1970

peering out of tiny eyes
the grubby hands that gripped the rail
wiped the window clean of frost
as the morning air
laid on the latch

a whistle awakened someone there
next door to the nursery just down the hall
a strange new sound you never heard before
a strange new sound
that makes boys explore

tread neat so small those little feet
amid the morning his small heart beats
so much excitement yesterday
it must be rewarded
must be displayed

large hands lift him through the air
excited eyes contain him there
the eyes of those
he loves and knows
but what's this extra bed just here

his puzzled head tipped to one side
amazement swims in those bright green eyes
glancing down upon this thing
that makes strange sounds
strange sounds that sing

in those silent happy seconds
that surround the sounds of this event
a parent smile is made in moments
they have made for you a friend

and all you've ever learned from them
until you grew much older
did not compare
with when they said

this is your brand new brother
this is your brand new brother
this is your brand new brother
