Yes I do!

Back in 1976, in the midst of Bicentennial fever, there was an Elton John song that became a hit called "Philadelphia Freedom." At least, that's what I think Bernie Taupin wrote. I could only ever understand three words:

Fill uh deh-fay-uh fee-dah
Shy-nuh me
Uh luh yuh
Shy-nuh lie
Tru-leh ow bada woe bada hi
Shy-nuh lie, shy-nuh lie
Shy-nuh lie, woe-sha shy-nuh lie
Fill uh deh-fay-uh fee-dah
Uh luh-huh-huh
Yes I do!

And as for Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man: the less said, the better.
