Elton JohnHey Ahab

It's a constant struggle getting up that hill There's a change of guard every day When you're clinging onto a driftwood boat You pray a great white whale might come your way No freeway traffic in the frozen North Just a chain link fence full of birds And when the harpoon's loaded in the cannon bay You'll be rolling through the pages lost for words Hey Ahab can you tell me where I can catch a ride out of here Hey Ahab hoist that sail You gotta stand up straight When you ride that whale In a crumbling city we were trapped for days With a broken sun above the clouds Caught like Jonah forty fathams down And a sign on the wall saying, "Hope Allowed" All the cryptic symbols carved on bone A far cry from a tattooed rose And when the boys in the rigging catch the wind We'll all weigh anchor and it's westward ho Hey Ahab can you tell me where I can catch a ride out of here Hey Ahab hoist that sail You gotta stand up straight When you ride that whale Hey Ahab can you tell me where I can catch a ride out of here Hey Ahab hoist that sail You gotta stand up straight When you ride that whale
