The Lyrics

Inspired by Sir Elton's decision to have corrective eye surgery.
I woke up past midnight
My glasses I can't find
Give me some eye drops
I feel half blind
Gonna see the sunlight
I'll improve my eyesight
Here, take my red specs
I want to see
Some laser correction
Just might make my eyeballs glisten
Real soon I'll be handsome
Real soon from lenses I'm free
Fix my corneas now
It's all inside my head
The case with the red specs are somewhere by my bed
Put them in a box somewhere
Put them in a drawer
Take my red specs
I can't wear them anymore
Had glasses with the wings back then
All the sparkly things back then
All sortsa weird frames
Oh what fame brings
I'd take 'em off and take a bow
I can't see the front row now
I'd put on my red specs
Just one more time
I'll put up no resistance
I can't see from this distance
Don't you call me Four Eyes
And you know I ain't kiddin'
Fix my corneas now
The case with the red specs are somewhere by my bed
Put them in a box somewhere
Put them in a drawer
Take my red specs
I can't wear them anymore
