chasing the crown lyrics – elton john

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 th*rns in your feet, i spread plague in the streets
i’ve sprung traps, confused maps, chasing the crown

chasing the crown till he bites the apple
i was licking my lips till his son come down
i’m chasing the crown, crown, i’m chasing the crown

i’m taking a turn in the right direction
by leaving his soul in the lost and found
i’m 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”

chasing the crown till he bites the apple
i was licking my lips till his son come down
chasing the crown, crown, i’m chasing the crown

i’m taking a turn in the right direction
by leaving his soul in the lost and found
i’m chasing the crown, chasing the crown

i’m chasing the crown till he bites the apple
i was licking my lips till his son come down
i’m chasing the crown, crown, i’m chasing the crown

i’m taking a turn in the right direction
by leaving his soul in the lost and found
i’m chasing the crown, i’m chasing the crown

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 th*rns in your feet, i spread plague in the streets
i’ve sprung traps, confused maps, chasing the crown

i saw the tea float in boston, i saw the live wire shock ’em
made them float, made them drown, chasing the crown
i built a wall, i built a wall in china
i’m chasing the crown
