Elton John - "Idol Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

He was a light star

Tripping on a high wire

Bulldog stubborn, born uneven
A classless creature, a man for all seasons

But don't bet them

They can't take him
To the very bottom
Because they made him and they'll waste him
And I don't believe that I want to watch them

'Cause the fifties shifted out of gear

He was an idol then, now he's an idol here
But his face has changed, he's not the same no more

And I have to say that I like the way his music sounded before
He was tight-assed

Walking on broken glass

Highly prized in the wallet size

The number one crush in a schoolgirl's eyes

But don't pretend that it won't end

In the depth of your despair

You went from lame suits right down to tennis shoes
To peanuts from the lion's share
