Testo ticking elton john bernie taupin - elton john

An extremely quiet child they called you in your school reports

He's always taken interest in the subjects that he's taught

So what was it that brought the squad car screaming up your drive

To notify your parents of the manner in which you died



At St. Patricks every Sunday
Father Fletcher heard your sins

Oh
he's unconcerned with competition he never cares to win

But blood stained a young hand that never held a gun

And his parents never thought of him as their troubled son



Now you'll never get to Heaven Mama said

Remember Mama said

Ticking
ticking

Grow up straight and true blue

Run along to bed

Hear it
hear it
ticking
ticking



They had you holed up in a downtown bar screaming for a priest

Some gook said His brain's just snapped then someone called the police

You'd knifed a Negro waiter who had tried to calm you down

Oh you'd pulled a gun and told them all to lay still on the ground



Promising to hurt no one
providing they were still

A young man tried to make a break
with tear-filled eyes you killed

That gun butt felt so smooth and warm cradled in your palm

Oh your childhood cried out in your head they mean to do you harm



Don't ever ride on the devil's knee Mama said

Remember mama said

Ticking
ticking

Pay your penence well
my child

Fear where angels tread

Hear it
hear it
ticking
ticking



Within an hour the news had reached the media machine

A male caucasian with a gun had gone berserk in Queens

The area had been sealed off
the kids sent home from school

Fourteen people lying dead in a bar they called the Kicking Mule



Oh they pleaded to your sanity for the sake of those inside

Throw out your gun
walk out slow just keep your hands held high

But they pumped you full of rifle shells as you stepped out the door

Oh you danced in death like a marionette on the vengeance of the law



You've slept too long in silence Mama said

Remember Mama said

Ticking
ticking

Crazy boy
you'll only wind up with strange notions in your head

Hear it
hear it
ticking
ticking
