Slow Down Georgie (she's Poison) Lyrics

by Elton John

Hey there, Georgie
Got a couple of things to say
One, you're my friend, and two, it's hurting me
Seeing you act this way

But my hands are tied and I can only try
To talk you out of a fall
'Cause the reputation of the woman you're dating's
About as nasty as the Berlin wall

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
Oh, man, you've got to watch yourself
She's gonna get in your head, she's gonna crawl in your bed
You're just a stepping stone for someone else

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
She's just another divorcee
An undercover lover of a hundred other little fish in the sea
Oh, oh, oh, oh

You better cut her loose
Before she gets her hooks in you
If you gave her the world and it was covered in pearls
She'd only ask for the moon

She's got you hypnotised with her big brown eyes
And a body that could stop a clock
But if you think your face ain't gonna be replaced
Georgie, boy, you're in for a shock

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
Oh, man, you've got to watch yourself
She's gonna get in your head, she's gonna crawl in your bed
You're just a stepping stone for someone else

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
She's just another divorcee
An undercover lover of a hundred other little fish in the sea
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Well, it ain't my job to rain on your parade
But if the chips were down you'd do the same for me
It's always been that way

She's got you paralysed with a pack of lies
About honour and the single girl
And if you buy that line, you must be out of your mind
You must be living in another world

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
Oh, man, you've got to watch yourself
She's gonna get in your head, she's gonna crawl in your bed
You're just a stepping stone for someone else

Slow down, Georgie, she's poison
She's just another divorcee
An undercover lover of a hundred other little fish in the sea
Oh, oh, oh, oh
