“Your Song” was one of the first songs Elton John wrote with Bernie Taupin. The two met after a record company gave John some of Taupin's lyrics to work with. Eventually, they both moved into John's parents' house, where they started working together. Bernie wrote the words for this particular song over breakfast at Elton's parents' home. A little while later while Bernie went up stairs to get ready for the day, Elton dashed over to the piano and wrote music to Bernie’s lyrics in about 20 minutes. The rest as they say is history.
