In the seventies, Bernie Taupin wrote most of the lyrics for Elton John's songs, and the pair still work together on songs now in 2012.
The collaboration between John and Taupin began in 1967, when they were put in contact after answering an advertisement seeking new songwriters. The pair did spend time apart between 1977 and 1979 so that Taupin could work with other artists, but they resumed working together after that. To date, Taupin has written the lyrics for over thirty of Elton John's albums.
