saint lyrics – elton john

you don’t p*ss your time in limbo
or hang out with the crowd
sitting on the stoop like a little girl
who took the wrong road into town

but you got that shortcut way about you
and no one’s gonna stare you down
you cook much better on a lower flame
you burn much better when the sun goes down

and heaven can wait
but you ought to be a saint
i’ve got your very best intentions
helping me along

and if i ever fail to mention
you were an overnight sensation
well, take it from me
my baby’s a saint, my baby’s a saint

i believe you were a new arrival
on the fast train p*ssing through
and you traded in your luck for survival
to sweeten up the witch’s brew

you had a better way of working magic
a little mystery in your eyes
instead of rolling over you remained the same
you took the whole world by surprise

and heaven can wait
but you ought to be a saint
i’ve got your very best intentions
helping me along

and if i ever fail to mention
you were an overnight sensation
well, take it from me
my baby’s a saint, my baby’s a saint
my baby’s a saint

and heaven can wait
but you ought to be a saint
i’ve got your very best intentions
helping me along

and if i ever fail to mention
you were an overnight sensation
well, take it from me
my baby’s a saint, my baby’s a saint
my baby’s a saint
