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 »

I would have waited all my life (I would have waited all my life)
Just to make love out of something other than spite
But the beauty is the beast you're baiting (I would have waited all my life)
Should really be worth the waiting

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

And so you turn your back on me (and so you turn your back on me)
And all the hot air that only echoes stale tobacco

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

Actions speak louder now than words (actions speak louder now than words)
By just a fraction
What's the use of saying I love you when I'm drinking to distraction?
We save our sanity (actions speak louder than words)
By saying such and such
After it's all been discussed (actions speak louder than words)
You say you must be touched

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage
