Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Producer:Caleb Quaye
Do you believe in fairies
For the children's rhymes are in my mind
Seen through the colours of my eyes
A rainbow in the sky
With the flowers of seed
Picked by the beautiful people who've gone
Where have they gone
Where have they all gone
chorus:
They're all throwing coins in a velvet fountain
Wishing on stars and floating on air
Can somebody catch me if my cloud is a stranger
And mystery believes me, a velvet fountain
Mrs. Jones you can't stop me
Your wedding ring told me
I can't love you any more
You had something everybody wanted
And everybody wants it from you
It's love, it's love, love
chorus:
They're all throwing coins in a velvet fountain
Wishing on stars and floating on air
A kaleidoscope mind, but nobody cares
Bring me a dictionary
Help me to spell it
The word that I'm wanting
But can't find right now
chorus:
They're all throwing coins in a velvet fountain
Wishing on stars and floating on air
Love is a velvet fountain
Love is a velvet fountain
