Elton John - "Social Disease Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

My bulldog is barking in the backyard

Enough to raise a dead man from his grave
And I can't concentrate on what I'm doing

Disturbance going to crucify my days

And the days they get longer and longer

And the nighttime is a time of little use
For I just get ugly and older

I get juiced on Mateus and just hang loose

And I get bombed for breakfast in the morning
I get bombed for dinner time and tea
I dress in rags, smell a lot, and have a real good time

I'm a genuine example of a social disease

My landlady lives in a caravan
Well that is when she isn't in my arms
And it seems I pay the rent in human kindness

But my liquor also helps to grease her palms

And they're falling apart at the seams

And the ladies are all getting wrinkles

Well I just get high on tequila
And see visions of vineyards in my dreams
