Oscar Wilde Gets Out - Elton John lyrics
♪ Oscar Wilde Gets Out ♪ official lyrics
Freedom for the scapegoat leaving Reading jail
Rheumy eyes just pierced his heart like crucifixion nails
Shaking fists and razor gleamed, you never stood a chance
When the ink ran red on Fleet Street
You turned your eyes to France

Humbled far from Dublin, chased across the waves
Your biting wit still sharp enough to slice through every
page
Desitute and beaten by the system of the crown
The bitter pill you swallowed tasted sweeter going down

And looking back on the great indifference
Looking back at the limestone walls
Thinking how beauty deceived you
Knowing how lonve fools us all

A golden boy in velveteen landed in New York
The past was so seductive when they paid to hear you talk
Baccarat and champagne flutes, tobacco from Virginia
Long before the lords and law branded Oscar Wilde a sinner

And looking back on the cold bleak winter
Looking back on those long dark days
Felt like the head of John the Baptist
In the arms of Salome

Don't turn around it's a white gull screaming
Don't cry out loud you never know who's listening
You've seen it all the exiled Unforgiven
From the stately homes of England to her prisons

And looking back at the hardened lifers
Looking back on the wretched poor
Thinking maybe they were my saviors
Strange to think I'll miss them all
Strange to think I'll miss them all
