Elton John - "Sweat It Out" lyrics

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

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

Don't kow-tow, don't bow down 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

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