levon lyrics – elton john

levon wears his war wound like a crown
he calls his child jesus
’cause he likes the name
and he sends him to the finest school in town

levon, levon likes his money
he makes a lot, they say
spends his days counting
in a garage by the motorway

he was born a pauper to a p*wn on a christmas day
when the new york times said god is dead
and the war’s begun
alvin tostig has a son today

and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
and he shall be levon
in tradition with the family plan
and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
he shall be levon, forever and a day

levon sells cartoon balloons in town
his family business thrives
jesus blows up balloons all day
sits on the porch swing watching them fly

and jesus, he wants to go to venus
leave levon far behind
take a balloon and go sailing
while levon, levon slowly dies

he was born a pauper to a p*wn on a christmas day
when the new york times said god is dead
and the war’s begun
alvin tostig has a son today, yeah

and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
and he shall be levon
in tradition with the family plan, whoo
and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
he shall be levon, forever and a day

and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
and he shall be levon
in tradition with the family plan, whoo
and he shall be levon
and he shall be a good man
he shall be levon, forever and a day
