Elton John - "Billy The Kids" lyrics

Music by elton john

Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk b-side in 1986

Nothing looks as bad

After staying up all night

I never meant to write
And the cruel words that cut you down
And what came out as anger

Oh was a lack of self control

Billy wont you hold me

Once before you go

Clever lies keep coming

Some men never change

Im a hand thats raised in anger
The blow that causes pain

But I just cant be trusted

With a bottle and a child

Billy its no wonder

You say Ive never tried

Oh so leave me now
Oh dont turn around

Its the best thing you ever did

But its hard for me to say goodbye

To billy and the kids
