Elton John - "Saint Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

You don't pass your time in limbo
Or hang out with the crowd
But you got that short cut way about you
Sitting on the stoop like a little girl
Who took the wrong road into town
And no one's gonna stare you down
You cook much better on a lower flame
You burn much better when the sun goes down
And heaven can wait

Helping me along
I got your very best intentions
But you ought to be a saint
You were an overnight sensation
Well take it from me
My baby's a saint
And if I ever fail to mention
My baby's a saint

I believe you were a new arrival
And you traded in your luck for survival
On the fast train passing through
To sweeten up the witch's brew
You had a better way of working magic
A little mystery in your eyes
Instead of rolling over you remained the same
You took the whole world by surprise
