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 »

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]
