Elton John: Levon with Lyrics

Filed under: Music and Videos, News, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 06:27

 

Levon bears his war wound like a crown
He calls his child Jesus
Because he likes the name

And he sends him to the finest school in town

Levon, Levon likes his money
He makes a lot they say
Spends his days counting
In a garage by the motorway

[Bridge]
He was born a pauper to a pawn
On a Christmas day
When the New York Times said
God is dead and the War’s begun

Alvin Tostig has a son today

[Chorus]
And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
And he shall be Levon
In tradition with the family plan

And he shall be Levon
And he shall be a good man
He shall be Levon

[Verse 2]
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
His family business thrives

Jesus blows up balloons all day
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
Leave Levon far behind
Take a balloon and go sailing
While Levon, Levon slowly dies

[Bridge]
He was born a pauper to a pawn
On a Christmas day
When the New York Times said
God is dead and the War’s begun

Alvin Tostig has a son today

[Chorus]
[Chorus]
