Elton John - "Religion Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Well he could almost taste the money
But he was sitting in a den of thieves
Looking for the great awakening
And the light went on inside
But that's when he got religion
He said somebody up there likes me
Now he's working for the holy guide
Trying to find a way to leave

He got drunk but he don't remember
When he thought he heard a choir of angels
That he'd been drinking in a bar downtown
From no salesman on TV
Singing in the Tiki Lounge
And that's when he got religion
He still drinks but he does believe
Just a tap on the shoulder in the parking lot
Religion

You do the best you can
We all make the same mistakes

We're gonna wind up with the man
Religion
We all make the same mistakes
Oh you do the best you can
We're gonna wind up with the man

She was silent as he paid her
But the thanks she got was next to none
And as her car pulled out of the motel
And that's when she got religion
She felt the presence of someone
In the front of a compact Ford
Just a gentle voice on the stereo
Now she's a working girl who loves the lord
