The Cage Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Have you ever lived in a cage?
Where you live to be whipped and be tamed
For I've never loved in a cage
Or talked to a friend or just waved

Well I walk while they talk about virtue
Just raised on my back legs and snarled
Watched you kiss your old daddy with passion
And tell dirty jokes as he died

I'm damned when I really care there
For the cellar's the room in your lives
Where you lace yourself with bad whiskey
And close the cage doors on your life

Well I pray while you bathe in bad water
Sing songs that I learnt as a boy
Then break all the bones in my body
On the bars you can never destroy

Have you ever lived in a cage?
Where you live to be whipped and be tamed
For I've never loved in a cage
Or talked to a friend or just waved

Songwriters
JOHN, ELTON / TAUPIN, BERNIE
