forty winks in the lobby
make mine a G&T
then to my favourite hobby
searching for an enemy

here in your paper houses
stretching for miles and miles
old men in stripey trousers
rule the world with plastic smiles

good or bad, like it or not
it's the only one we've got

i won't let the sun go down on me
i won't let the sun go down

mother nature isn't in it
three hundred million years
goodbye in just a minute
gone forever, no more tears

pinball man, power glutton
vacuum inside his head
forefinger on the button
is he blue or is he red?

break your silence if you would
before the sun goes down for good

i won't let the sun go down on me
i won't let the sun go down
