Honky Cat

作詞:Bernice Taupin    作曲:Elton John
When I look back, boy, I must've been green
Boppin' in the country
Fishin' in the stream
Lookin' for an answer
Tryin' to find a sign
Until I saw your city lights
Honey I was blind

They said, "Get back, honky cat
Better get back to the woods"
Well, I quit those days and my redneck ways, and I
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) Oh, the change is gonna do me good

"You better get back, honky cat"
Livin' in the city ain't where it's at
It's like tryin' to find gold in a
A silver mine
It's like
Tryin' to drink whiskey
Oh, from a bottle of wine

Well, I read some books and I read some magazines about those
A-high-class a-ladies down in
A-New Orleans and all the
A-folks back home, well, they said I was a fool
Oh, "Believe in the Lord" is the golden rule

They said, "Get back, honky cat
Better get back to the woods"
Well, I quit those days and my redneck ways, and I
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, the change is gonna do me good
