You're So Static
Elton John Bernie Taupin
I've a constant ache in the morning light
It's on account of the night before
Some Park Lane lady in a shady bar
Took a fancy to the watch I wore.
But I can still remember how she laughed at me
As I spun around and hit the bed
She said „thank you honey, forget about the money
This pretty watch'll do instead.“
City living woman, you're so static
Matching your men with a hook and eye
If you're gonna spend the summer in New York City, Oh,
Them women Oh, Oh, Oh,
They're gonna slice your pie.
Said you're so static, baby I've had it
Rolling in a yellow cab
Downtown hustlers trying to pull some muscle
If they catch you, Oh, Oh, Oh it could turn out bad.
It's „Show me what you want, I'll show you what I've got
I can show you a real good time.“
She's a friend indeed, of a friend in need
But you'll be sorry when she leaves you cryin’.
