Boogie Pilgrim Lyrics

by Elton John

Crime in the streets
I read about it everyday in the papers
And justice needs and justice wants

But just in times, yes, too late here
Oh, feels like I wasn't born there
(Feels like I wasn't born there)
I feel just like a Boogie Pilgrim, oh, huh, yeah

Boogie Pilgrim, hustled to get it, to get it together
Down on the jive talk, down on the weather
Boogie Pilgrim, oh, brother I never felt better
No, I never felt better

Low life's complete
When you've lived that way out on the sidewalk
(Walking on the sidewalk everyday)
Oh, I got the speed, baby, you got the need, ah,uh

But the need in me needs nothing
(But you know that I need nothing)
But I know that you all want something
Oh, just like Boogie Pilgrim, Boogie Pilgrim

Boogie Pilgrim, hustled to get it, to get it together
Down on the jive talk, down on the weather
Boogie Pilgrim, oh, brother I never felt better, yeah, I know I'm better
(Don't you know that I never felt better)
No, I'm never, never, never felt better
(Don't you know that I never felt better)

Don't you know that I never felt better
Don't you know that I never felt better
Don't you know that I never felt better
Don't you know that I never felt better

Boogie, Boogie, Boogie Pilgrim, yeah
Oh, lord I never felt better, yeah
(Don't you know that I never felt better)

Ooh hoo, ooh hoo, ooh hoo
Boogie Pilgrim, hustled to get it, to get it together
Down on the jive talk, down on the weather
Boogie Pilgrim, yeah, lord I never, never felt better, yeah
(You know that I never felt better)

Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim
Oh, Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim
A Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim
A Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim

Boogie Pilgrim, Boogie Pilgrim
Boogie Pilgrim, Boogie Pilgrim
A Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim
A Boogie Pilgrim, a Boogie Pilgrim
