ELTON JOHN lyrics - Caribou

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

Original and similar lyrics
EGO Elton John Take a look at me now And take a taste of the money I'm not in it for the bread I'm in it for the gravy honey Step on the thin ice lightly And check out the show twice nightly Oh cause I'm, I'm on the stage tonight And if the price is right I'll, I will amaze before the light I crave the light mmm blinding white I need the light tonight Take a look at me now And take a look at my billing I'm not in it as an extra I'm in it for the killing Inflate my ego gently Tell them heaven sent me Oh 'cause I'm, I'm so expressive And I'm so obsessed With my ego, my ego And it's message oo inform the press Invite the guests I need the press tonight Do you remember acting out your youth A romeo resplendent on an orange case Do you remember how I would recite And how I'd blow my lines And hide my face Well maybe it was childish, foolish Before schoolish, immaturish, lose your coolish Well I had to grow and prove my ego Take a look at me now And take a taste of the money I'm not in it for the bread I'm in it for the gravy honey Inflate my ego gently Go tell them heaven sent me Oh cause I'm, I'm so expressive And I'm so obsessed With my ego, my ego And it's message oo inform the press invite the guests I need the press tonight Do you remember how I would recite And how I'd blow my lines And hide my face Well maybe it was childish, foolish Before schoolish, immaturish, lose your coolish Well I had to grow and prove my ego

Vanish In The Absence Of Virtue

In the Woods "Strange In Stereo"
I spoke so well that evening I sang so well of light Wish I may wish I might Have this wish I wish tonight The more we sang of wonders The more we drank our wine Suddenly a ghost appeared The clock sang number nine We spoke from end of table His majesty, the chief - You shall take what you deserve From comfort and relief This words combined with manhood - In alcohole entwined - Made all the saying into jokes And good eyes into blind I tried to taste their warfare - My lips could barely move When I did as much as I could do To fit into their groove But as it proved impossible To satisfy their needs I solved my little problem And accomplished all my deeds For I spoke so well that evening I sang so well that night Wish I would Wish I could be swallowed By your light

Walk Like A Man

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Tunnel Of Love"
I remember how rough your hand felt on mine on my wedding day And the tears cried onmy shoulder I couldn't turn away Well so much has happened to me that I don't understand All I can think of is being five years old following behind you at the beach tracing your footprints in the sand Trying to walk like a man By Our Lady Of The Roses we lived in the shadow of the elms I remember ma draggin' me and my sister up the street to the church whenever she heard those wedding bells Well would they ever look so happy again the handsome groom and his bride As they stepped into that long black limosine for their mystery ride Well tonight you step away from me and alone at the alter I stand And as I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray for the strength to walk like a man Well now the years have gone and I've grown from that seed you've sown But I didn't think there'd be so many steps I'd have to learn on my own Well I was young and I didn't know what to do When I saw your best steps stolen away from you Now I'll do what I can I'll walk like a man And I'll keep on walkin'
