Elton John - "Street Kids Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

They must have had the whole thing planned
There must have been a hundred

If we make a stand
I think we'll be outnumbered

If I'd had the chance

Why I'm a juvenile delinquent
Then I could understand

In an East End gang

And if you think you've seen gasoline burning in my eyes

Don't be alarmed, tell yourself it's good to be, it's good to be alive

It's just another street kid on your tail
With my boot lace tie and my hand-me-downs
Running on the wrong side of the rails
You know I run the toughest bunch this side of town

Those street kids making news just being around

I've been bottled and been brained

Squealers can't be trusted
If we fight tonight

You can bet we'll all be busted

I'd like to break away
From the rut I'm in
But beggers can't be choosers

And I was born to sin

Let's hear it for the street kids

Making news just being around
