Act of War

Album: Ice On Fire (1985)
Charted: 32
  • This ain't no battle honey, this ain't no fight
    How come you take it so hard when I stay out all night
    If I take a drink, is that against the law
    And if I have a good time, do you call that an act of war

    Well you better believe it boy, this house is your home
    I didn't build it up for you to live here on my own
    And if you think it's easy to forget about me
    You'd better think twice, you'd better believe it's an act of war

    We're living on the front line you and me
    Fighting on this battleground of misery
    Oh go ahead bring on your artillery
    And we'll make this an act of war
    Give it all you've got `cause I'm all dug in
    Keep the punches coming I can take them on the chin
    Winner takes all, let the best man win
    And we call it an act of war

    Well I'm a man of convenience I work a long hard day
    After twelve long hours ain't I got the right to play
    If living together is getting in the way
    Then I call that an act of war

    Well if that's your game then honey two can play
    I'm going on the town tonight and have some fun my way
    Ain't no way baby this girl's gonna stay
    I call it, I call it an act of war

    And it looks like time ain't been on our side
    If we could turn the clock back
    We might survive this act of war Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
