Elton John - "Burn Down The Mission Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

You tell me there's an angel in your tree
For things are getting desperate in our home
Did he say he'd come to call on me
Everybody now bring your family down to the riverside
Living in the parish of the restless folks I know

Look to the east to see where the fat stock hide
Behind four walls of stone the rich man sleeps
It's time we put the flame torch to their keep

If we're gonna stay alive
Burn down the mission
See the red flame light the sky
Burn down the mission
Watch the black smoke fly to heaven
Burn it down to stay alive
It's our only chance of living
Deep in the woods the squirrels are out today
Take all you need to live inside
My wife cried when they came to take me away

Than burn burn burn burn down the mission walls
But what more could I do just to keep her warm
