Billy & The Kids lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk b-side in 1986

Nothing looks as bad
After staying up all night
And the cruel words that cut you down
I never meant to write
And what came out as anger
Oh was a lack of self control
Billy wont you hold me
Once before you go

Clever lies keep coming
Some men never change
Im a hand thats raised in anger
The blow that causes pain
But I just cant be trusted
With a bottle and a child
Billy its no wonder
You say Ive never tried

Oh so leave me now
Oh dont turn around
Its the best thing you ever did
But its hard for me to say goodbye
To billy and the kids
