Leather Jackets Lyrics

by Elton John

Do you pray to someone new
When you're locked up in the rock?
Is the golden age dead and gone
Are the hands stuck on the clock?

Can you talk to Buddy's bones
When you spin a forty five?
The king ain't dead, he's just asleep
Somewhere in the after life

And look at them boys in leather jackets
Second skin, not fade away
Danger girls love leather jackets
Play back to back and that'll be the day
Leather jackets, that'll be the day

We all need to smell the heat
You know that things go better with chrome
Is Memphis for real or just a song
Three thousand miles from home

Be a cool jerk, don't work
(Cool jerk)
When fashion makes you change
Keep the faith, don't waste
Another nickel on another name

And look at them boys in leather jackets
Second skin, not fade away
Danger girls love leather jackets
Play back to back and that'll be the day
Leather jackets, that'll be the day

And idolize twisted cars
Like taxi cabs and spiders
Eternity's just down the road
They're looking for more riders

And look at them boys, yeah, in leather jackets
Second skin, not fade away
Danger girls love leather jackets
Play back to back and that'll be the day
Leather jackets, that'll be the day

And look at them boys, yeah, in leather jackets
Second skin, not fade away
Danger girls love leather jackets
Play back to back and that'll be the day
Oh, leather jackets, that'll be the day
Oh, leather jackets, that'll be the day

Look at them boys, leather jackets
Look at them boys in leather jackets
Look at them boys
Look at them boys in leather jackets
In leather jackets
