Elvis Costello

Clowntime Is Over

Tears on your blackmail
Written to ransom
A point of the fingernail
Says that hes handsome
Clowntime is over
Time to take cover
While others just talk and talk
Somebodys watching where the others dont walk
Clowntime is over
A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He dont step back as expected
Hes otherwise and unprotected
Chorus
Almost too good to be true
Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
While everybodys hiding under covers
Whos making lovers lane safe again for lovers?
Chorus

I Wanna Be Loved

Why must I be so lonely?
When so many people pass me by
Ive been waiting for oh so long now
And yet Im unable to answer why
I cant be made to give up now
Can you find room for me
In your heart somehow?
I wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved
I guess Im a victim of loneliness
But why should this be my destiny?
A foolish man for a lot of my life
Shouldnt there be someone
Someone for me?
I hope and I pray some happy day
That Ill be around to hear you say
I wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved

Uncomplicated

Blood and chocolate
I hope youre satisfied what you have done
You think its over now
But weve only just begun
I asked for water
And they gave me rose wine
A horse that knows arithmetic
And a dog that tells your fortune
Chorus: its in your eyes
Uncomplicated
I want to buy you
A big blue diamel
Cheap white plastic shoes
That dont walk out and dont let in
I want to show you
How I love you
When youre over me
Theres no-one above you
Chorus
You think its over now

Almost Blue

Almost blue
Almost doing things we used to do
Theres a girl here and shes almost you
Almost all the things that your eyes once promised
I see in hers too
Now your eyes are red from crying
Almost blue
Flirting with this disaster became me
It named me as the fool who only aimed to be
Almost blue
Its almost touching it will almost do
Theres a part of me thats always true...always
Not all good things come to an end now it is only a chosen few
Ive seen such an unhappy couple
Almost me
Almost you
Almost blue

Bama Lama Bama Loo

Bama lama bama loo
Gotta girl named lucinda
They call her the great pretender
Gotta girl named lucinda
They call her the great pretender
And when she talks
She says a bama lama loo
Chorus
Bama lama bama loo
Bama lama bama loo
Bama lama bama loo
Bama lama bama loo
Well I dig her style
Shes bout to drive me wild
With bama lama bama loo
Well I asked my little baby for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
Well I asked my little girl for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
She said ....

Possession

If theres anything that you want
If theres anything that you need
Theres no need to be evasive
Money talks and its persuasive
Possession
Now youre sending me your best wishes
Signed with love and vicious kisses
You lack lust, youre so lacklustre
Is that all the strength you can muster
Possession
Even when we are out of touch
Now I know that Ive seen too much
Seen too much
So I see us lying back to back
My case is closed my case is packed
Ill get out before the violence
Or the tears or the silence
Possession

Clowntime Is Over No. 2

clowntime is over
Tears on your blackmail
Written to ransom
A point of the fingernail
Says that he's handsome
Clowntime is over
Time to take cover
While others just talk and talk
Somebody's watching where the others don't walk
Clowntime is over
A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He don't step back as expected
He's otherwise and unprotected
Chorus
Almost too good to be true
Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
While everybody's hiding under covers
Who's making lover's lane safe again for lovers?
Chorus

Motel Matches

Somewhere in the distance I can hear who shot sam?
This is my conviction, that I am an innocent man
Though you say Im unkind
Im being as nice as I can
Boys everywhere, fumbling with the catches
I struck lucky with motel matches
Falling for you without a second look
Falling out of your open pocketbook
Giving you away like motel matches
I wake with the siren in an emergency
Though your mind is full of love
In your eyes there is a vacancy
And you know what Ill do
When the light outside changes from red to blue
Chorus

O, Mistress Mine

(harle/shakespeare)
O, mistress mine
Where are you roaming?
O, stay and hear
Your true loves coming
That can save both high and low
Trip no further pretty sweeting
Journeys end in lovers meeting
Every wise mans son doth know
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Trip no further pretty sweeting
Journeys end in lovers meeting
Every wise mans son doth know
What is love?
tis not hereafter
Present mirth
Hath present laughter
Whats to come is still unsure
In delay there lies no plenty
Then come kiss me sweet and twenty

Your Angel Steps Out Of Heaven

You tell me you married an angel
Shes made heaven out of your home
You say there couldnt be rainbows in heaven
cause shes brought you happiness that youve never known
You may hate me for what Ive to tell you
But youll thank me for setting you right
While you work to keep angels in heaven
Your angel steps out of heaven each night
Her heavens not the same as youre living in
Its any place where theres music and a free drink from him
So call her your angel, I wont say youre not right
But your angel steps out of heaven each night
