The Lyrics

So I popped this in my CD player, and, without the original lyrics in front of me, this is what I deciphered from the lyrics Elton sang. This is what I heard, anyway. Only a few lines remain the same as the original, so I guess I understood some of the original song. Download or listen to the original song and you will find that a lot of lyrics can be misheard from this song. P.S. this is my second parody of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. P.P.S. Don't ask me what "vodker" and "townics" are, I swear, that's what he's singing.
When are ya gonna come now?
When are you going to lounge
I should have stayed on the phone
I should have listened to my old mom

You know you can't hope forever
I didn't sign up for you
I'm not a president for your friends to open
This voice too young to be singing the blue
Ahhhhh
Ahhh

So goodbye yellow brick row
Where the dark clouds are starting to howl
You can't plan being your pen-pal
I'm goin' back to my plow

Back to the Holiday Inn in the woods,
Huntin' the horny black toe
Oh, I've found in the cider my future lies
A yawn, the yellow brick ro-o-o-w
Ahhhh
Ahhhhh
Ahhh

What do you think you're doin'?
I practiced you down the plain
It'll take you a couple of vodker and townics
To set you on your feet again

Maybe you'll get replaced men
There's men like me to be found
Mongos who ain't got a panic
Sniffin' for tiggers like you on the ground
Ahhhh
Ahhh

So goodbye yellow brick row
Where the dark clouds are starting to howl
You can't plan being your pen-pal
I'm goin' back to my plow

Back to the Holiday Inn in the woods,
Huntin' the horny black toe
Oh, I've found in the cider my future lies
A yawn, the yellow brick ro-o-o-w
Ahhhh
Ahhhhh
Ahhh

Well, I always thought in "Someone saved my life tonight" he was singing "Someone saved my life tonight, Sugarbread (sugarbread, oooooo)"

I always thought it was "Goodbye, Oedipus Robe..." Well done.

Elton did win a few John Fogerty Awards for hardest performer to understand. "She's got electric boobs..." instead of "boots." Sad songs may say so much, but that doesn't mean we know what they say. Of course, with the onset of rap, that award is retired.

I always heard the line 'back to the howlin' old owl in the woods, hunting the horny back toad' as 'back to the cabin that's out in the woods, having the harralay back towed'! Don't ask me what a harrarlay is or why it's being back towed!
