Elton John - "Sweet Painted Lady Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I'm back on dry land once again
Opportunity awaits me like a rat in the drain
We're all hunting honey with money to burn
Just a short time to show you the tricks that we've learned

If the boys all behave themselves here
You won't need a gutter to sleep in tonight

Well there's pretty young ladied and beer in the rear
Oh the prices I charge here will see you alright
So she lays down beside me again
Many have used her and many still do
My sweet painted lady, the one with no name
There's a place in the world for a woman like you
Oh sweet painted lady
Getting paid for being laid
Seems it's always been the same
Guess that's the name of the game

Forget us we'll have gone very soon
And we'll leave the smell of the sea in your beds
Just forget we ever slept in your rooms
Where love's just a job and nothing is said
