look ma no hands lyrics – elton john

i’ll take a rainy day
to make a champagne shower
poach some h*rn and tusk
to build an ivory tower

been to philadelphia
the day it was closed
i walked to new orleans
down a louisiana road

the skeletons they hung from the bushes and the trees
but not a skull among ’em said boo to me
in a time of wine and cheap cigars
i’m on top of the world
top of the world ma

look ma no hands
look ma ain’t life grand
i’m a super power, i’m a handy man
didn’t i turn out, didn’t i turn out to be
everything you wanted ma
ain’t you proud of me

it takes a silver tongue
to have the midas touch
not your alchemist
making gold from rust

been down in roswell
when the martians came
i sailed to mandeville
across lake pontchartrain
