Elton John - "Leather Jackets Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Do you pray to someone new
When you're locked up in the rock'
Is the golden age dead and gone
Are the hands stuck on the clock'
When you spin a forty five
Can you talk to Buddy's bones
Somewhere in the after life
The king ain't dead, he's just asleep

Second skin, not fade away
And look at them boys in leather jackets
Danger girls love leather jackets
Play back to back, and that'll be the day
Leather jackets, that'll be the day

You know that things go better with chrome
We all need to smell the heat
Is Memphis real or just a song
Three thousand miles from home
When fashion makes you change
Be a cool jerk, don't work
Another nickel on another name
Keep the faith, don't waste

And idolise twisted cars
They're looking for more riders
Eternity's just down the road
Like taxi cabs and spiders
