Elton John - "Legal Boys Elton John Rice" lyrics

Your accountant called this morning
He couldn't wait to tell me
There was springtime in his heart
And the letter from your lawyer
How he'd pulled our lives apart
Lies unopened on the tray

I may get around to reading it later today
Walking round the lonely rooms
I see everything the same
What was purchased in my name
But suddenly it matters
Whether this or that was paid for
Can the seven years together be divided by two
Belongs to me or you

It says something for the legal boys
But nothing much for us
The legal boys have won again
That all we had together
And you and I have lost
Is so quickly ended thus
They can't tell us how it happened
But they'll let us know the cost
Oh they'll let us know the cost
Oh yeah
There's a lot I'd like to tell you
I do not speak their language

But I can't get past your guards
I would rather call you darling
And they hold all the cards
And clients took their place
But lovers left here long ago
Than defendant in the case
