All The Girls Love Alice

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road


Raised to be a lady by the golden rule
Ebm                                  Bbm
Alice was the spawn of a public school
With a double barrel name in the back of her brain
          Ebm                Ab                                  Bbm
And a simple case of mummy doesnt love me blues

Reality it seems was just a dream
      Ebm                                                    Bbm
She couldnt get it on with the boys on the scene
But what do you expect from a chick whose just sixteen
       Ebm                          Ab                           Bbm
And hey hey hey hey hey hey you know what I mean

Gm7b5                         Gb7
All the young girls love Alice
Db                                Eb7
Tender young Alice they say
          Bbm                              Gb
Come over and see me, come over and please me
Bbb         Cb       Bbm 
Alice it's my turn today

All the young girls love Alice
Tender young Alice they say
If I give you my number will you promise to call me?
Wait till my husbands away

Poor little darling with a chip out of her heart
It's like acting in a movie When you've got the wrong part
Getting your kicks in another girls bed
And it was only last Tuesday they found you in the subway dead

And who could you call your friends down in Soho?
One or two middle aged dykes in a go-go?
And what do you expect from a sixteen year old yo-yo?
And hey hey hey hey hey hey don't you know
