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 »

Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
That`s what I want to do
I want to spend it on you

Checking on a checkmate
Grassing on a classmate
So beautiful and fortunate
He hates to love, you love to hate
He can fix you for good
`Cause he is the neighborhood
You can`t get money for blood
Blood money for doin` no good
But they won`t take my love for tender

Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
Payday`s coming and we wash it away
Clean money, clean money
That`s what I want to do
I want to spend it on you

Have you made your selection?
Are you ready for correction?
`Cause the wages of sin
Are an expensive infection
And it`s under the counter
Under the Geiger counter
Who stole your thunder?
But they won`t take my love for tender
