Elton John - "Mona Lisas Mad Hatters Part Two" lyrics

Music by elton john

Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album reg strikes back

I used to think that new york city

Fell from grace with god

And innocence abroad

Waged a war for the underdog
When the snow falls

And central park looks like a christmas card

I just looked beyond the bagman

And the madness that makes this city hard

I heard a basketball
Inner city prisoners
Somewhere out beyond a chain link fence

Argue for the right of self-defense

But theres a fast break

And every work of art wakes something in the soul
Just focus on the brush strokes

And the bouquets that the dancers hold

Spanish harlem still sounds good to me
Yeah mona lisas getting older

Standing in the shadow of miss liberty

While I walk along the west side
Down through little italy

Searching for the city that

That took away the kid in me
