Lyrics
When are you gonna come down?
When are you going to land?
I should have stayed on the farm
I should have listened to my old man
You know you can't hold me forever
I didn't sign up with you
I'm not a present for your friends to open
This boy's too young to be singing, the blues
So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl
You can't plant me in your penthouse
I'm going back to my plough
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Hunting the horny back toad
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
Beyond the yellow brick road
What do you think you'll do then?
I bet that'll shoot down your plane
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again
Maybe you'll get a replacement
There's plenty like me to be found
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground
So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl
You can't plant me in your penthouse
I'm going back to my plough
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Hunting the horny back toad
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
Beyond the yellow brick road.
Songwriters: Bernie Taupin / Elton John

we soared so high
offered pie in the sky
on promises we’d fly
of roads paved in gold..
yet the woods call me home-
to places of simplicity
serenity..it tugs at me.
i’m not a toy to share
i have no care
for your pretentious air.
there is no yellow brick road,
just lies on a dead end street.
i prefer muddy feet…

I wonder what’s wrong with it
you left me because I always wanted sex
On that yellow bricks road
you said goodbye without even giving me a kiss
I was just the nymphomaniac of your feelings
that’s why I always wanted to fuck with you
and you’ve abandoned me in the wall of my soul https://t.co/NbJchaQInK
