Elton John - "Better Off Dead Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

There was a face on a hoarding that someone had drawn on
And just enough time for the night to pass by without warning
Away in the distance there's a blue flashing light
The wind blows away all of yesterday's news
As the flickering neon stands ready to fuse
Someone's in trouble somewhere tonight

Through the grease streaked windows of an all night cafe
Well they've locked up their daughters and they battened the hatches
They always could find us but they never could catch us
We watched the arrested get taken away
And that cigarette haze has ecology beat
As the whores and the drunks filed in from the street
If you ask how I am then I'll just say inspired

'Cause the steams in the boiler the coals in the fire
#############################################If the thorn of a rose is the thorn in your side
Then you're better off dead if you haven't yet died
