Ego Lyrics

by Elton John

Take a look at me now and take a taste of the money
I'm not in it for the bread, I'm in it for the gravy, honey
Step on the thin ice lightly
And check out the show twice nightly

Oh 'cause I, I'm on the stage tonight
And if the price is right
I, I will amaze before the light, I crave the light
Blinding white, I need the light tonight

Take a look at me now and take a look at my billing
I'm not in it as an extra, I'm in it for the killing
Inflate my ego gently
Tell them Heaven sent me

Oh 'cause I, I'm so expressive
And I'm so obsessed with my ego, my ego
And its message, oh inform the press
Invite the guests, I need the press tonight

Do you remember acting out your youth?
A Romeo resplendent on an orange case
Do you remember how I would recite
And how I'd blow my lines and hide my face?

Well maybe it was childish
Foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish, lose your coolish
I had to grow and prove my ego

Take a look at me now and take a taste of the money
I'm not in it for the bread, I'm in it for the gravy, honey
Inflate my ego gently
Oh tell them Heaven sent me

Oh 'cause I'm so expressive
And I'm so obsessed with my ego, my ego
And its message, oh inform the press
Invite the guests, I need the press tonight

Do you remember acting out your youth?
Romeo resplendent on an orange case
Do you remember how I would recite
And how I'd blow my lines and hide my face?

Well maybe it was childish
Foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish, lose your coolish

I was childish, foolish
Before schoolish
Immaturish, lose your coolish
But I, I had to grow and prove my ego
