Elton John - "Leather Jackets" lyrics

Do you pray to someone new When you're locked up in the rock Is the golden age dead and gone Are the hands stuck on the clock Can you talk to Buddy's bones When you spin a forty five The king ain't dead, he's just asleep Somewhere in the after life

And look at them boys in leather jackets Second skin, not fade away Danger girls love leather jackets Play back to back, and that'll be the day Leather jackets, that'll be the day

We all need to smell the heat You know that things go better with chrome Is Memphis real or just a song Three thousand miles from home Be a cool jerk, don't work When fashion makes you change Keep the faith, don't waste Another nickel on another name

And idolise twisted cars Like taxi cabs and spiders Eternity's just down the road They're looking for more riders
