Testo mona lisa and mad hatters - elton john

Now I know
Spanish harlem
are not just pretty words

to say.

I thought I knew
but now I know that rose trees never grow


in New York city.



Until you've seen this trash can dream come true


You stand at the edge
while people run you through.

And I thank the Lord
there's people out there like you


I thank the Lord there's people out there like you.



While Mona Lisas and mad hatters


sons of bankers
sons of lawyers


turn around and say
good morning
to the night.

For unless they see the sky
but they can't and that is why


they know not if it's dark out side or light.



This Broadway's got
its got a lot of songs to sing


if I knew the tunes I might join in.

I go my way alone
grow my own


my own seeds shall be sown
in New York city.

Subways no way
for a good man to go down


Rich man can ride
and the hobo he can drown.



And I thank the Lord for the people I have found


I thank the Lord for the people I have found.



While Mona Lisas and mad hatters


sons of bankers
sons of lawyers


turn around and say
good morning
to the night.

For unless they see the sky
but they can't and that is why


they know not if it's dark out side or light.



And now I know
Spanish harlem
are not just pretty words

to say.

I thought I knew
but now I know that rose trees never grow


in New York city.

Subways no way
for a good man to go down


Rich man can ride
and the hobo he can drown.



And I thank the Lord for the people I have found


I thank the Lord for the people I have found.



While Mona Lisas and mad hatters


sons of bankers
sons of lawyers


turn around and say
good morning
to the night.

For unless they see the sky
but they can't and that is why


they know not if it's dark outside or light


they know not if it's dark outside or light
