[quote=""Jobar""]I thought the Elton John lyric went "burning down and in, I'm here and gone."

As a kid hearing it on the radio, I could only come up with the implausible "burning down the streets of every lawn." I was pretty sure that clumsy phrase was inauthentic--maybe Elton goofed up word order ("the lawns of every street")--but I did manage to picture a rocket flying low over the suburbs, its exhaust plume blackening the yard grass.

These days kids would just search the Net for the real lyric.
