  • I'm getting bored
    Being part of mankind
    There's not a lot to do no more
    This race is a waste of time

    People rushing everywhere
    Swarming around like flies
    Think I'll buy a forty four
    Give 'em all a surprise

    Think I'm gonna kill myself
    'Cause a little suicide
    Stick around for a couple of days
    What a scandal if I died

    Yeah I'm gonna kill myself
    Get a little headline news
    I'd like to see what the papers say
    On the state of teenage blues

    A rift in my family
    I can't use the car
    I gotta be in by ten o'clock
    Who do they think they are

    I'd make an exception
    If you want to save my life
    Brigitte Bardot gotta come
    And see me every night

    I think I'm gonna kill myself
    'Cause a little suicide
    Stick around for a couple of days
    What a scandal if I died

    Yeah I'm gonna kill myself
    Get a little headline news
    I'd like to see what the papers say
    On the state of teenage blues

    On the state of teenage blues

    Kill myself, suicide
    What a scandal if I died
    Suicide, headline news
    On the state of teenage blues Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
