The Greatest Discovery
Music by Elton John, Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

G                             Bm
Peering out of tiny eyes, the grubby hands that grip the rail
F                                C                     D      
Wiped the window clean of frost, as the morning air laid on the ledge
G                                 Bm
A whistle awakened someone there, next door to the nursery just down the

F                                              C
A strange new sound you never heard before,  a strange new sound that makes
boys explore
G                                       Bm
Tread neat so small those little feet, amid the morning his small heart beats

                                      C         G   D        
So much excitement yesterday, That must be rewarded must be displayed

C                    D
Large hands lift him through the air
Bm                     B7
Excited eyes contain him there
C                    G
The eyes of those he loves and knows
F                     C         D
But what's this extra bed just here

G                                    Bm
His puzzled head tipped to one side, amazement swims in those bright green

                             C                               D
Glancing down upon this thing, That makes strange sounds, strange sounds
that sing

G                                   Bm
In those silent happy seconds, that surround the sound of this event
                               C                  D       G
A parent smile is made in moments,  they have made for you a friend

C                         D
And all you ever learned from them
Bm                  B7
Until you grew much older
Did not compare with when they said
G                 D               G
This is your brand new brother G7
C                 D               G
This is your brand new brother  2x
