Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus, 25 August 1954) is an English singer-songwriter. He began his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk/New Wave movement of the mid-to-late 1970s. Steeped in word play, the vocabulary of Costello's lyrics is broader than that of most popular songs. His music has drawn on many diverse genres; one critic described him as a "pop encyclopaedia", able to "reinvent the past in his own image". more »

Now there's newsprint all over your face, well
Maybe that's why I can read you like a book
Just when I thought I was getting my tasty bite
I go and lose my appetite
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
They'd like to sink their teeth into you
For the pride and the pleasure and the privilege of having you
If I say you're the one, do you think that I'm serious?
You get that kind of talk from older men
If I say I love you then I must be delirious
So why are you trying to put my temperature up again?
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
Having a heart attack 'round your ankles
When you wake up with x-rated eyes
When you wake up still shaking
How could I apologize as your check your effects
And you check your reflection?
I'm so affected in the face of your affection
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
Having a heart-attack 'round your ankles
I could swear, I could promise that I'll always be true to you
But we may not live to be so old
I could even say I'm going to do something new to you
Now the girls I see just leave me cold
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
Look at the men that you'd call uncle
