Elton John - "Ego Elton John Bernie Taupin Released In 1978" lyrics

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

'Cause I'm on the stage tonight and

If the price is right

I will amaze before the light I crave the light
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

'Cause I'm so expressive and I'm so obsessed with my ego
Oh inform the press, invite the guests

My ego and it's message

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

But 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, tell them heaven sent me

Oh 'cause I'm so expressive and I'm so obsessed with my ego

My ego and it's message

Oh inform the press, invite the guests

I need the press tonight
