20th Century Blues (Elton John)

Written by Noel Coward Available on the UK album 20th Century Blues - The Songs of Noel Coward Twentieth century blues are getting me down Blues, escape those dreary twentieth century blues Why, if there's a god in the sky, why shouldn't he grin High above this dreary twentieth century din In this strange illusion, chaos and confusion People seem to lose their way 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 In this hurly-burly of insanity, our dreams cannot last long We've reached a deadline, a press headline, every sorrow Blues value is news value tomorrow
