"Texan Love Song" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I heard from a friend you'd been messing around
With a cute little thing I'd been dating uptown
Well I don't know if I like that idea much
Well you'd better stay clear I might start acting rough

You out of town guys sure think you're real keen
Think all of us boys here are homespun and green
But that's wrong my friend so get this through your head
We're tough and we're Texan with necks good and red

So it's ki yi yippie yi yi
You long hairs are sure gonna die
Our American home was clean till you came
And kids still respected the president's name

And the eagle still flew in the sky
Hearts filled with national pride
Then you came along with your drug crazy songs
Goddamit you're all gonna die

How dare you sit there and drink all our beer
Oh it's made for us workers who sweat, spit and swear
The minds of our daughters are poisoned by you
With your communistic politics and them negro blues

Well I'm gonna quit talking and take action now
Run all of you fairies clean out of this town
Oh I'm dog tired of watching you mess up our lives
Spending the summertime naturally high

And it's ki yi yippie yi yi
You long hairs are sure gonna die
Our American home was clean till you came
And kids still respected the president's name

And the eagle still flew in the sky
Hearts filled with national pride
Then you came along with your drug crazy songs
Goddamit you're all gonna die
Goddamit you're all gonna die
Oh lord, goddamit you're all gonna die, listen now

    General CommentIt sounds like the perspective of the hippy-killers in "Easy Rider". Or someone who might've hassled someone like, say, Elton John and his bandmates while visiting the country around that same time.

    General CommentAnd at least in my copy of the song, I'm pretty sure it says "negro blues", not the slur.

    General CommentThe song meaning couldn't be more obvious: These are the rantings of some famous bigot across the Pond in England, who imagined he knew something about Texans. That this kind of bigotry is still celebrated is disappointing, but not surprising. But it's okay, rednecks can take it. Besides, they have guns.
