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 »

Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness 
Have you ever seen the like of this mankind? 
If a boy or girl is cute, we simply shoot to starry heights 
Any maybe, any might 
But always so capricious, in the face of wonder we`re suspicious 
And though we came from frogs and fishes 
Our taste is far from fine 
Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness 

Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness 
Have you ever seen the like of this mankind? 
You take the Himalayas, you`ll take Manhattan`s finest mountain top 
He wouldn't change his whiskey sour for any bitter crop 

But always so contrary, from Father Christmas to the Virgin Mary 
And though the moments of belief 
Fly by before you find if you`d just unhand your mind 
Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness 

But always so contrary, from Father Christmas to the Virgin Mary 
And though the moments of belief 
Fly by before you find if you`d just unhand your mind 
Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness
