Elton John - "The Cage" lyrics

Have you ever lived in a cage Where you live to be whipped and be tamed For I've never loved in a cage Or talked to a friend or just waved

Well I walk while they talk about virtue Just raised on my back legs and snarled Watched you kiss your old daddy with passion And tell dirty jokes as he died

But I'm damned when I really care there For the cellar's the room in your lives Where you lace yourself with bad whiskey And close the cage doors on your life

Well I pray while you bathe in bad water Sing songs that I learnt as a boy Then breaks all the bones in my body On the bars you can never destroy
