The Cage (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin Have you ever lived in a cage Where you live to be whipped and be tamed For I've never loved in a cage Or talked to a friend or just waved Well I walk while they talk about virtue Just raised on my back legs and snarled Watched you kiss your old daddy with passion And tell dirty jokes as he died But I'm damned when I really care there For the cellar's the room in your lives Where you lace yourself with bad whiskey And close the cage doors on your life Well I pray while you bathe in bad water Sing songs that I learnt as a boy Then break all the bones in my body On the bars you can never destroy
