Party Girl

Elvis Costello & the AttractionsBuy this song

They say you're nothing but a party girl
Just like a million more all over the world
I know I shouldn't be raising my hopes so high, but
I have seen the hungry look in their eyes
They'd settle for anything in disguise of love
Seen the party girls look me over
Seen 'em leaving when the party's over

They can't touch me now
You say you don't mind
We're so hard to find
I could give you anything but time
Give it just one more try
Give it a chance
Starts like fascination
Ends up like a trance

Oh, you'll never be the guilty party girl
Maybe someday we can go hiding from this world
Maybe I'll never get over the change in style, but
I don't want to lock you up and say you're mine
Don't want to lose you or say goodbye
I'm the guilty party and I want my slice
But I know you've got me and I'm in a grip-like vise

They can't touch me now
You say you don't mind
We're so hard to find
I could give you anything
I would give you anything
I can give you anything but time

Guilty ones are best (time)
Guilty ones are best (time)
Guilty ones are best (time)
Guilty ones are best (time)
Ooh, guilty ones are best (time)
Guilty ones are best (time)
Guilty ones are best (time)
