Elton John - "Levon Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Levon wears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child Jesus
'Cause he likes the name
And he sends him to the finest school in town
Levon, Levon likes his money

He makes a lot they say
In a garage by the motorway
Spend his days counting

And the war's begun
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times said God is dead

Alvin Tostig has a son today
And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon
In tradition with the family plan
And he shall be Levon

He shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
Jesus blows up balloons all day
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

Leaving Levon far behind
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
While Levon, Levon slowly dies
Take a balloon and go sailing
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day

When the New York Times said God is dead
Alvin Tostig has a son today
And the war's begun
