all Elton John lyrics



Johnny B. Goode
Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood an log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like ringing a bell

Go go
Go Johnny go go go
Go Johnny go go go
Go Johnny go go go
Go Johnny go go go
Go go Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Sat beneath the tree by the railroad track
An engineer could see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
The People passing by, they would stop and say
Oh my, how that little country boy could play

His mother told him, someday you will be a man
You will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun goes down
And maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonightback to top
Warm Love in a Cold World
Lyrics by pete bellotte
Music by pete bellotte, stefan wisnet and gunther moll
Available on the album victim of love

City boy, city girl
Arm in arm in our city world
A lot of love, a lot of hope
Hope our love don't go up in smoke
I feel so good, yeah I feel so fine
I know I'm yours and I know you're mine
Feeling good, yeah I'm feeling fine
Now you're mine, now you're mine, now you're mine

Warm love in a cold world
Warm love in a cold world
Hope we're gonna make it
Hope we're gonna make it
Warm love in a cold world
Warm love in a cold world
Girl we gotta make it
Girl we gotta make it
Warm love in a cold world
Sure we're gonna make it
Sure we're gonna make it
Sure we're gonna make it
We're gonna make it

Never knew, but thanks to you
I'm finding out just what love can do
You picked me up, I've come alive
I'm seeing life in another light
Feel so good, yeah I feel so fine
I know I'm yours and I know you're mine
Feeling good, yeah I'm feeling fine
Now you're mine, now you're mine, now you're mineback to top
Born Bad

Lyrics by pete bellotte
Available on the album victim of love

You've been crying
And there ain't no use denying
It was me
Who put you through this misery
And I'd like to say I'm sorry
But I can't, no I can't
Nothing's gonna change me
Baby, that's the way I am

I was born bad
Always been the same, yes I was born bad
Never gonna change 'cause I was born bad
Only me to blame 'cause I was born bad
Yes I was born bad
Always been my habit, I was born bad
Just can't seem to help it, I was born bad
Always gonna happen, I was born bad
'cause I was born bad

I mistreat you
And you know I always cheat you
But that's me
And that's the it's always been
And I'd like to say I'm sorry
But I can't, no I can't
Nothing's gonna change me
Baby, that's the way I amback to top
Thunder in the Night
Music by michael hofmann
Lyrics by pete bellotte
Available on the album victim of love

Ain't no loving tonight
My woman says she ain't my woman
I sure put up a fight
To keep it right

I used a whole lot of pride to get her
I used a whole pack of lies and begged her
She just threw me the key
And said she's free

Thunder in the night
Thunder in the night again
Thunder in the night again
Thunder in the night
Thunder in the night again
Thunder in the night again

Frightening lightning hit me again
It's burning much deeper this time
I got them storm clouds hanging right over my head
And it's gonna rain harder this time

Thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder

Out here searching the streets
I gotta find my woman and tell her
I never wanted to cheat
But she cheated me

I never knew just how much I loved her
I never knew till I went and lost her
Now it's all too late
She's gone awayback to top
Spotlight
Music by stefan wisnet and gunther moll
Lyrics by pete bellotte
Available on the album victim of love

Night life, hot spot light
I've gotta make them dance tonight
Night life, hot spot light
I really want to shine tonight
Night life, hot spot light
I gotta steal a heart tonight
Night life, hot spot light
I'll show them how to dance tonight

I know that the competition's heavy
I know that these guys are cool
But I'll show this kid is more than ready
I sure got something to prove

Right now I'm just another guy
I don't mean nothing to them
But when they see me dance
When they see me dance

Right now the music's moving higher
I feel them stepping up the beat
These shoes will set the floor on fire
Everybody on your feet

You thought that you'd seen the best
Well I can tell you, forget the rest
When you see me dance
When you see me danceback to top
Street Boogie

Available on the album victim of love

Street guys, walking, dancing
Sidewalk, music, hot thing
They got their boxes tuned into their favorite show
As they truck on down the road
Is that the radio
Yes that's the radio
Let it go, let it go, let it go

Street boogie got a hold on me
Street boogie gonna set me free
Street boogie keep a hold on me
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright with me

Street boogie, it's the city beat
Street boogie, on the boogie street
Street boogie, yeah and that's for me
Street boogie, street boogie, street boogie, street boogie

Traffic, skater, rolling
Sharing, music, sure thing
He got his shoulder holster turned a way up loud
As he wheels his way around
Is that the radio
Yes that's the radio
Catch the sound, catch the sound, catch the sound

Boogie, street boogie
Boogie, street boogieback to top
Victim of Love
Music by sylvester levay and jerry rix
Lyrics by pete bellotte
Available on the album victim of love

You said you'd never fake it
You swore we'd always make it last
And it sounded so real
And I fell into your love trap
Lying, yes, I was the perfect fool
I believed every word
And it never occurred to me
Is this a game are you just playing
Will I be losing you

Oh am I a victim of love, victim of love
Did you take me for a ride
Victim of love, victim of love
Then I hope you're satisfied
Victim of love, victim of love
Were you only using me
Victim of love, victim of love
What a fool you made of me

My friends warned me about you
I laughed, how could I doubt your love
Then I saw you with him
And my world crumbled around me
I felt life slip away from me
There's a void inside me
Where my heart used to be
So now, this was a game you were just playing
And now I'm losing you

Oh I'm a victim of love, victim of love
Well you took me for a ride
Victim of love, victim of love
Well I hope you're satisfied
Victim of love, victim of love
You were only using me
Victim of love, victim of love
What a fool you've made of meback to top
