Elton John – Up The Revolution lyrics

I tell you the truth can be painful
And the mainstream of life can be cruel
If you believe in your chances today
You could be a fool, don't you be a fool, oh no

Revenge is mine, oh no
A case of do or die
Gather round if you want to be free
Sing the words to this song

We go up the revolution, go down to what you mean to me
When achieving the impossible is a possibility
It's a time for any loser to win, it's how you play the game
Don't you start the revolution without me in another name

Stand by your bunbury notions
That is how you get to be strong
Now you come here from over the sea
Where you don't belong, no you don't belong, oh no

Friend of mine, oh no
A case of do or die
Gather round if you want to be free
Sing the words to this song

We go up the revolution, go down to what you mean to me
When achieving the impossible is a possibility
It's a time for any loser to win, and you can overthrow
We go up the revolution, freedom strike another blow

Oh no, revenge is mine, oh no
A case of do or die
Gather round if you want to be free
Sing the words to this song

We go up the revolution, go down to find a brighter day
If you dream the unapproachable dream, you find a better way
If it's just another ___ then you can overthrow
We go up the revolution, freedom strike another blow
Yeah, strike another blow
