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 »

Muscle baby won`t let go
Weekend baby won`t say no
Is she an active beauty?
I should say so

Wooden bones and pretty lashes
Iodine for your baby`s gashes
Little tombs for your baby`s ashes
If something goes wrong

Tiny steps almost real
Tiny fingers you almost feel
Make her walk or make her kneel
Oh, she`s almost human beneath that Cuban heel

Who`s that down at the bottom of the garden?
Who`s that hiding underneath the sofa?
Who gets blamed whenever you`re in trouble?
She`s your friend and she`s your double

Tiny steps almost real
Tiny fingers you almost feel
Make her walk or make her kneel
Oh, she`s almost human beneath that Cuban heel

Pretty little fashion face
Pick anyone up off the shelf
Though you say it`s a disgrace
You know you owe it to yourself
You can even shop around
Though you won`t find any cheaper
She`s your baby now
You can keep her

Tiny steps almost real
Tiny fingers you almost feel
Make her walk or make her kneel
Oh, she`s almost human beneath that Cuban heel
