Tell Me What The Papers Say (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin I spy headlines, newsprint tells lies Tell me what the papers say Save lives don't drive, everybody's got to die someday At least that's what the papers say Coal mines closed down Nobody's working underground today More jails, peace for sale Japanese still killing whales Teen dreams On two inch screens Lipstick boys all look like queens Least that's what the papers say I spy headlines, newsprint tells lies Tell me what the papers say Save lives don't drive, everybody's got to die someday Least that's what the papers say Dope and pills, guns kill Death just buys cheap thrills Coal mines, closed down Nobody's working underground today Teen dreams, on two inch screens Lipstick boys all look like queens Least that's what the papers say
