Elton John - Sweet painted lady

 

Tekst oryginalny

I´M
BACK ON DRY LAND ONCE AGAIN
OPPORTUNITY AWAITS ME LIKE A RAT IN THE DRAIN
WE´RE ALL HUNTING HONEY WITH MONEY TO BURN
JUST A SHORT TIME TO SHOW YOU THE TRICKS THAT WE´VE LEARNED

IF THE BOYS ALL BEHAVE THEMSELFES HERE
WELL THERE´S A PRETTY YOUNG LADIES AND BEER IN THE REAR
YOU WON´T NEED A GUTTER TO SLEEP IN TONIGHT
THE PRICES I CHARGE HERE WILL SEE YOU ALRIGHT

SO SHE LAYS DOWN BESIDE ME AGAIN
MY SWEET PAINTED LADY THE ONE WITH NO NAME
MANY HAVE USED HER MANY STILL DO
THERE´S A PLACE IN THE WORLD FOR A WOMAN LIKE YOU

OH SWEET PAINTED LADY
SEEMS IT´S ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME
GETTING PAID FOR BEEING LAID
GUESS THAT´S THE NAME OF THE GAME

FORGET US WE´LL HAVE GONE VERY SOON
JUST FORGET WE EVER SLEPT IN YOUR ROOMS
AND WE´LL LEAVE THE SMELL OF THE SEA IN YOUR BEDS
WHERE LOVE´S JUST A JOB AND NOTHING IS SAID

SO SHE LAYS DOWN BESIDE ME AGAIN
MY SWEET PAINTED LADY THE ONE WITH NO NAME
MANY HAVE USED HER MANY STILL DO
THERE´S A PLACE IN THE WORLD FOR A WOMAN LIKE YOU

OH SWEET PAINTED LADY
SEEMS IT´S ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME
GETTING PAID FOR BEEING LAID
GUESS THAT´S THE NAME OF THE GAME

OH SWEET PAINTED LADY
SEEMS IT´S ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME
GETTING PAID FOR BEEING LAID
GUESS THAT´S THE NAME OF THE GAME
