The Lyrics

This is based on Elton's performance in Melbourne 1986. His vocals were terrible!
Hey kids, rasp it loose together
The spotlight's hitting something
That's been known to kill the weather
We'll shoot the angry bird tonight
So stick around
You're gonna hear electric vocals
Solid nodes of sound

(chorus)
Say, Stanley and Greggie, have you heard them yet
But they're so spaced out
B-B-B-B-B-Bennie and the Nodes
Oh but they're worse and not wonderful
Oh Bennie she's really coarse

She's got electric boots, polyps too
Read it in a magazine
B-B-B-Bennie and the Nodes

Hey kids, heard '86 Paris
Maybe they're hopped up
So Bennie blows her larynx
We'll shan't survive, let us sing for the worst
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who's clear and who's hoarse

(chorus 2)
Say, Stanley and Greggie, have you heard them yet (whoa oh oh oh!)
But they're so spaced out
B-B-B-B-B-Bennie and the Nodes
Oh but they're worse and not wonderful
Oh Bennie she's really coarse

She's got electric boots, polyps too
Read it in a magazine
B-B-B-Bennie and the Nodes! (nodes, nodes, nodes, nodes, nodes, nodes...)

(solo)

(repeat chorus)

Bennie! (Bennie!) (x3)
Good job! Bennie and the Nodes

Bennie (Bennie!) (x3)
Ooh, Bennie and the Nodes
(repeat verse x2)

(solo)

You know I'm talkin' bout Bennie
(incoherent)
Bennie and the Nodes!

(power solo)

Bennie! (Bennie) (x2)
Bennie! (Ray Cooper yells)
Good! Bennie and the Nodes...

Bennie!
Ray: BENNIE!
(yells more shit)

(instrumental)

(piano solo, kickass improv)

Yeah! Bennie! Gonna, Bennie and the Nodes...

Bennie! (Bennie!) (x3)
Doh! Bennie and the Nodes

Bennie and the Nodes...!!!!!!

I haven't heard this '86 performance you speak of but as bad as it was I'm sure it was still better than Florida Georgia Line! 4's
