Act of War Lyrics

by Elton John

This ain't no battle honey, this ain't no fight
How come you take it so hard when I stay out all night
If I take a drink, is that against the law?
And if I have a good time, do you call that an act of war?

Well you better believe it boy, this house is your home
I didn't build it up for you to live here on my own
And if you think it's easy to forget about me
You'd better think twice, you'd better believe it's an act of war

We're living on the front line you and me
Fighting on this battleground of misery
Oh go ahead bring on your artillery
And we'll make this an act of war

Give it all you've got 'cause I'm all dug in
Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin
Winner takes all, let the best man win
And we call it an act of war

I'm a man of convenience, I work a long hard day
After twelve long hours ain't I got the right to play?
If living together is getting in the way
Then I call that an act of war

Well if that's your game then honey two can play
I'm going on the town tonight and have some fun my way
Ain't no way baby this girl's gonna stay
I call it, I call it an act of war

We're living on the front line you and me
Fighting on this battleground of misery
Oh go ahead bring on your artillery
And we'll make this an act of war

Give it all you've got 'cause I'm all dug in
Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin
Winner takes all, let the best man win
And we call it an act of war

And it looks like time ain't been on our side
If we could turn the clock back
We might survive this act of war

We're living on the front line you and me
Fighting on this battleground of misery
Oh go ahead bring on your artillery
And we'll make this an act of war

Give it all you've got 'cause I'm all dug in
Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin
Winner takes all, let the best man win
And we call it an act of war

It's an act of war
An act of war
An act of war
It's an act of war
Call it an act of war
Act of war
Call it an act of war
Call it an act of war
It's an act of war
Get your girlfriend
Get your husband
I call it an act of war
An act of war, yeah
