Act Of War lyrics

Duet with millie jackson
Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk single in june, 1985

This aint no battle honey, this aint no fight
How come you take it so hard when I stay out all night
If I take a drink, is that against the law
And if I have a good time, do you call that an act of war

Well you better believe it boy, this house is your home
I didnt build it up for you to live here on my own
And if you think its easy to forget about me
Youd better think twice, youd better believe its an act of war

Were living on the front line you and me
Fighting on this battleground of misery
Oh go ahead bring on your artillery
And well make this an act of war
Give it all youve got `cause Im all dug in
Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin
Winner takes all, let the best man win
And we call it an act of war

Well Im a man of convenience I work a long hard day
After twelve long hours aint I got the right to play
If living together is getting in the way
Then I call that an act of war

Well if thats your game then honey two can play
Im going on the town tonight and have some fun my way
Aint no way baby this girls gonna stay
I call it, I call it an act of war

And it looks like time aint been on our side
If we could turn the clock back
We might survive this act of war
