Chasing The Crown
Elton John Bernie Taupin
I built a wall in China, I sank an ocean liner
I’ve wrecked homes, I’ve burned thrones, chasing the crown.
I’ve put the thorns in your feet, I spread plague in the streets
I’ve sprung traps, confused maps, chasing the crown
I’m chasing the crown till he bites the apple
I was lickin’ my lips till his Son come down –
I’m chasing the crown, the crown, I’m chasing the crown
I’m taking a turn in the right direction
By leaving his soul in the lost and found
Chasing the crown, I’m chasing the crown.
I saw the tea float in Boston, I saw the live wire shock ‘em
I made them float, I made them drown, chasing the crown
I laid the desert sands, I froze the polar caps
Well, they’d dry out, and I’d shout Hey I’m chasing the crown.
