The Lyrics

This is based on Elton's performance in Melbourne 1986. His vocals were terrible!
Heard a vocal crack for the first time yesterday
I'd always heard nodules, sounds of 'RAY'
'Cause nodules here don't move up modern slopes
There's nothing to snort
So there's not a great deal of dope

(verse 1)
Sure is hell living listening to this one hoarse voice
There's half a mile of Australia lump bed ground
And I just can't wait to lose all of this one hoarse voice
There's nothing to snort 'cause there's zero dope around

(alt verse 1)
It sure is hell listening to this one hoarse voice
There's half a mile of Australia lump bed ground
Nothing much doing of an evening
Unless you're sitting on a piano stool just rasping a voice

And they ain't too well acquainted with the vocal cords
But if you want to hear Susanna then they'll rasp all night
They'll rasp all night

'Cause it's no dice singing with this one hoarse voice
Laid back, as my old worn hound
And I just can't wait to lose all of this one hoarse voice
There's nothing to snort 'cause there's simply zero dope around

(interlude)
RRRRR YEAH!

And they ain't too well acquainted with the vocal cords
But if you want to hear Susanna then they'll rasp all night
They'll rasp all night

(verse 1)
These aren't the actual lyrics, I've rewrote them myself since the titles were changed; the concert was uploaded on YouTube with changed titles to match Elton's vocal shape. Anyway you can find my lyrics in the comments section of those videos! Song notes: "Sounds of RAY" is in reference to Ray Cooper's gruff voice. Also the sound of a hoarse voice! Alt verse 1 can be put in place of verse 1.
