    MONA LISAS & MAD HATTERS
    Elton John
    Honky Chateau (1972)

    And now I know
    Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say
    I thought I knew
    But now I know that rose trees never grow in New York City

    Until you've seen this trash can dream come true
    You stand at the edge while people run you through
    And I thank the Lord there's people out there like you
    I thank the Lord there's people out there like you

    While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
    Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
    Turn around and say good morning to the night
    For unless they see the sky
    But they can't and that is why
    They know not if it's dark outside or light

    This Broadway's got
    It's got a lot of songs to sing
    If I knew the tunes I might join in
    I'll go my way alone
    Grow my own, my own seeds shall be sown in New York City

    Subway's no way for a good man to go down
    Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
    And I thank the Lord for the people I have found
    I thank the Lord for the people I have found

    The Amphitheatre Ephesus in Turkey was the site of one of Elton’s most striking solo concerts. On July 17th 2001, he played a 20-song set with every decade of his career represented, including this performance of ‘Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters’. In the track, lyricist Bernie Taupin expresses his then-disillusionment with New York City. The song quickly became a favourite by both fans and the composer, who has called it “one of my all-time favourites”.

    4:16

    From Elton John's 1988 album Reg Strikes Back, this was a follow-up to the song Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters which Elton John & Bernie Taupin had released on the 1972 album #Honky Chateau. In contrast to the first song, which is, although beautiful, a bit of a dark and cold response to the harshness of New Yrok City, this time Taupin's lyrics are more positive as they seem to give the city a second chance. Elton composed jazzy music to Part Two and said, That's probably my favorite track on the album. It just has a great New York feel. Freddie Hubbard played the trumpet solo. For several years in concerts Elton and his band performed an extended, improvisational rendition of the two songs together.

    Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters

    And now i know...
    Spanish harlem are not just pretty words to say
    I thought i knew...
    But now i know that rose trees never grow in new york city

    Until you've seen this trash can dream come true
    You stand at the edge while people run you through
    And i thank the lord there's people out there like you
    I thank the lord there's people out there like you

    While mona lisas and mad hatters
    Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
    Turn around to say good morning to the night
    For unless they see the sky
    But they can't and that is why
    They know not if it's dark outside or light

    This broadway's got...
    It's got a lot of songs to sing
    If i knew the tunes i might join in
    I'll go my way alone...
    Grow my own, my own seeds shall be sown in new york city
