Elton John - "Twentieth Century Blues" lyrics

Twentieth century blues are getting me down People seem to lose their way Blues, escape those dreary twentieth century blues Why, if there's a god in the sky, why shouldn't he grin In this strange illusion, chaos and confusion High above this dreary twentieth century din What is there to strive for, love or keep alive for Say, Hey hey, call it a day Blues, nothing to win or to lose, it's getting me down Blues, escape those weary twentieth century blues Why is it that civilized humanity can make this world so wrong We've reached a deadline, a press headline, every sorrow Blues value is news value tomorrow In this hurly-burly of insanity, our dreams cannot last long
