    All about, hypnotized,
    Never realized the passing hours, evening showers,
    The good news hangin' in my darkest dreams
    And the sun fired hard (or "on") the social scene
    Dressed up on a lady dawn the nitty green
    Second time,

    Artist: Elton John
    Real Lyric: ...Altar-bound, hypnotized,...Never realised the passing hours of evening showersSlip noose hanging in my darkest dreamsI'm strangled by your haunted social sceneJust a pawn out-played by a dominating Queen...Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive...And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the riverClinging to your stocks and bondsPaying your H.P. demands foreverComing in the morning with a truck to take me home...So save your strength and run the field you play alone...

    The story:

    This song was one big mystery to my 13 or 14 year
    old mind. I had no idea what it was about,
    although it was intriguing with its people rolling
    'round the basement floor and whatnot.

    I owned only the 45 RPM recording, so I didn't
    have the actual wording at hand, nor any easy way
    to find it out. Thus, while I knew that "So say
    you're string (etc.)" was probably not what Elton
    was really so adamantly insisting upon, off-kilter
    phrases like that one and the mental images they
    evoked came to be considered by me just as
    integral a part of the song as the parts I got
    right did.

    Bottom line? Someone Saved My Life Tonight exists
    for me--even today, although I now know the
    correct lyrics--in that same category of surreal
    songwriting as (for example) Come Together and
    Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.
