I fell in love with this song because of a movie that had another Elton John song on it. This one wasn't quite as famous

Lyrics got cut in half. Must've been the mad hatter on the loose, or Dolly Dagger, or Molly Hatchet. Who knows?

Great Tune. The Indigo Girls do an amazing cover of it.

Definitely one of my favorites as well. I love the lyrics- it really hits on the monotony of work and the "condition" we place ourselves.

one of my first favorite songs. older brother bought this album when it first came out many moons ago. i just like the music and melody. reading the lyrics now i have to say this song is amazing. songwriting is a craft which is slowly disappearing . taupin and john in their 70s heyday were among the best.

I don't know if I have ever heard this song but I can tell that it has greatness written all over it.

Elton John and Bernie Taupin, together, are a force to be reckoned with!

He performed this at the concert held right after 9-11. It was a beautiful tribute

First song I heard after getting out an extended stay in the hospital. I'll always remember it in that moment.

This song has always touched me, but I've never quite known why. Maybe that's the sign of a great song, one that reaches a part of you that you're not even aware of.

So many great songs, over so many years!

Great song from a great album. I've come to appreciate Elton John's early albums in my silvering years.

I LOVE THIS SONG, THE ARTIST'S MESSAGE TOUCHES MY SOUL

One of the best.

Why so good? Great piano skills and a heart made for popular music. In the early days, he was good in part due to his partnerhsip with Bernie Taupin, who helped write most of the early music, including "Mona Lisas.." Brilliant lyrics.
