    Quality tune.. But, Billy was a fictional character, and the story teller in the song wasn't tragically killed in a car accident

    Jungle music contains no emotion or sentiment

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver coon
    Little boy spook and the man who's a boon

    Good song, but the helmet-hair really dilutes the emotion

    Song sounds too much like the Bad News Bears theme song, which detracts from the emotional aspect

    Big fan of Elton ... 'Your Song' & 'Tiny Dancer' are two of my all time favorites
