Saint

This song is by Elton John and appears on the album Too Low for Zero (1983).

You don't pass your time in limbo
Or hang out with the crowd
Sitting on the stoop like a little girl
Who took the wrong road into town
But you got that short cut way about you
And no one's gonna stare you down
You cook much better on a lower flame
You burn much better when the sun goes down

And heaven can't wait
But you ought to be a saint
I got your very best intentions
Helping me along
And if I ever fail to mention
You were an overnight sensation
Well take it from me,
My baby's a saint
My baby's a saint

I believe you were a new arrival
On the fast train passing through
And you traded in
Your luck for survival
To sweeten up the witches brew
You had a better way of working magic
A little mystery in your eyes
Instead of rolling over
You remained the same
You took the whole world by surprise

And heaven can't wait
But you ought to be a saint
I got your very best intentions
Helping me along
And if I ever fail to mention
You were an overnight sensation
Well take it from me
My baby's a saint
My baby's a saint
