Elton John - "Sweat It Out Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

No ceiling on hard living
Peace keepers keep on breathing
Can't deny eye for eye
Dictate to my reason
It's open season
She devils ruling Britain
Hey girl stick it in your purse

Band aids on dead doorways
Call it treason
No heroes in the Bat Cave
Don't give me Tears For Fears
Fires burn with black smoke
Oil slicks put us on the ropes
Man it's hard to handle
Give me tears of rage
When the bank's broke

Don't bow down
Don't kow-tow
Loosen up
Get the lead out
Backs up let them shout
Backs up sweat it out
When your back's up
Sweat it out
Backs up
Sweat it out
No ice on a greasy river

Liberty and John Doe
Stand and Shiver
Hope froze in the cold weather
Knocking down your door
War waits when the lines form
The baby sitter in a uniform
For your rice and corn
No ceiling on hard living

Peace keepers keep on breathing
Can't deny eye for eye
It's open season
Dictate to my reason
She devils ruling Britain
Hey girl stick it in your purse
Call it treason
