Music by elton johnlyrics by bernie taupinnever releasedthere’s a picture in the nursery of a well known soldier manand he wants to be like father when he grows up if he canhis eyes survey the floorboards with his soldiers around himbut fear not for the future, you will climb the highest mountainso regimental sergeant zippostand up to attention will youhear the bugle sounding in the morning call up risingso your cowboy castle is standingyou’re the one who is commandingwatch them march along the landing down the stairsjust a small boy in a small boy’s worldand small boys do strange thingshe likes to see the match sticks flyand hear the cannons ringfor his eider down, his battle fieldand in his dreams his fights are realuntil the field is won, aim, fire the guns
