Testo cry to heaven - elton john

I found a black beret

On the street today

It was lying in the gutter all torn

There's a white flag flying

On a tall building

But the kids just watch the storm



Their dirty faces

Pressed on the windows

Shattered glass before their eyes

There's a mad dog barking

In a burned out subway

Where the sniper sleeps at night



No birthday songs to sing again

Just bricks and stones to give them

Wrap them up in your father's flags

And let them cry to heaven



There are many graves

By a cold lake

As the beds were when your babies are born

And your rag doll sits

With a permanent grin

But the kids just watch the storm



I saw a black cat

Tease a white mouse

Until he killed it with his claws

Seems a lot of countries

Do the same thing

Before they go to war
