Elton John - "Gotta Get A Meal Ticket Elton John Bernie Tau" lyrics

I can hound you if I need to
Sip your brandy from a crystal shoe
I'm on the bottom line, I'm on the bottom line
In the corner, in the corner

While the others climb reaching dizzy heights
The world's in front of me in black and white
Landing on skid row
I'd have a cardiac if I had such luck
Lucky losers, lucky losers landing on skid row
While the Diamond Jims
Breath heavy in their brand new clothes
And the Kings road pimps
I'm on the bottom line, I'm on the bottom line
To stay alive you need a meal ticket
To survive you need a meal ticket
And I gotta get a meal ticket
Feel no pain, no pain
No regret, no regret
You're someone else
Do yourself a favor, the meal ticket does the rest
When the line's been signed
Trust in us and we will love you anyway, anyway

Shake a hand if you have to
Don't leave us stranded in the jungle
With fifty percent that's hard to handle
Ain't that so, ain't that so
