Texan Love Song
Elton John Bernie Taupin
I heard from a friend you'd been messin' around
With a cute little thing I'd been dating uptown;
Well, I don't know if I like that idea much,
Well, you'd better stay clear, I might start acting rough.
You out-of-town guys sure think you're real keen,
Think all of us boys here are homespun and green;
But that's wrong, my friend, so get this through your head,
We're tough and we're Texan with necks good and red.
So it's Ki-i-yippie-yi-yi,
You long hairs are sure gonna die,
Our American home was clean till you came,
And kids still respected the president's name.
And the eagle still flew in the sky,
Hearts filled with national pride.
Then you came along with your drug-crazy songs –
Goddammit, you're all gonna die.
How dare you sit there and drink all our beer,
Oh, it's made for us workers who sweat, spit and swear,
The minds of our daughters are poisoned by you,
With your communistic politics and them Negro blues.
Well, I'm gonna quit talking and take action now,
Run all of you fairies clean out of this town,
Oh, I'm dog-tired of watching you mess up our lives,
Spending the summertime naturally high.
