Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Producer:Caleb Quaye
There's a picture in the nursery
Of a well known soldier man
And he wants to be like father
When he grows up if he can
His eyes survey the floorboards
With his soldiers around him
But fear not for the future
You will climb the highest mountain
chorus:
So Regimental Sergeant Zippo
Stand up to attention will you
Hear the bugle sounding, it's the morning call up rising
So your cowboy castle is standing
You're the one who is commanding
Watch them march along the landing down the stairs
Just a small boy in a small boy's world
And small boys do strange things
He likes to see the match sticks fly
And hear the cannons ring
For his eider down, his battle field
And in his dreams his fights are real
Until the field is won, aim, fire the guns
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
