Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

[the live version is available on the fan club christmas cd 1998.]- bernie taupin(elton john – from the album goodbye yellow brick road)When are you gonna come downWhen are you going to landI should have stayed on the farmI should have listened to my old manYou know you can’t hold me foreverI didn’t sign up with youI’m not a present for your friends to openThis boy’s too young to be singing the bluesSo goodbye yellow brick roadWhere the dogs of society howlYou can’t plant me in your penthouseI’m going back to my ploughBack to the howling old owl in the woodsHunting the horny back toadOh I’ve finally decided my future liesBeyond the yellow brick roadWhat do you think you’ll do thenI bet that’ll shoot down your planeIt’ll take you a couple of vodka and tonicsTo set you on your feet againMaybe you’ll get a replacementThere’s plenty like me to be foundMongrels who ain’t got a pennySniffing for tidbits like you on the groundSo goodbye yellow brick roadWhere the dogs of society howlYou can’t plant me in your penthouseI’m going back to my ploughBack to the howling old owl in the woodsHunting the horny back toadOh I’ve finally decided my future liesBeyond the yellow brick road
