European

Elton John opens the Reckless Eurovision Song Contest with a radical re-interpretation of Rocket Man:

 

If there is one thing in my life I’ve learned as I get older
It’s the incredible healing power of love and compassion
And I really believe that we need more love
And compassion in the world today
A lot

I am so sick to death of politicians,
Especially British politicians
I am sick to death of Brexit
I am a European
I am no stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot
I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done

And I want us to start right now
It’s torn people apart
So I want more love in the world
I want us to talk to each other
And come together

I am a European
European
I am no stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot
And I want us to start right now

I am a European
European
I am no stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot

There’s a new cereal called Brexit
You eat it and you throw up
Like walking through Hampton Court maze blindfolded
Being turned around 16 times
And trying to find your way out
I don’t think people in Britain were told the truth to start with
I don’t think they knew exactly what they were voting for
They were promised something that was completely ridiculous
And wasn’t economically viable
And it’s got so complicated now
That I just don’t know what’s going on
