Suit Of Lights - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Declan MacManus

While Nat King Cole sings welcome to my world

 

You request some song you hate you sentimental fool

 

And it's the force of habit

 

If it moves then you f**k it

If it doesn't move you stab it

And I thought I heard the working man's blues

 

He went out to work that night and wasted his breath

 

Outside there was a public execution

 

Inside he died a thousand deaths

 

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

 

And they put him in a suit of lights

 

In the perforated first editions

Where they advocate the hangman's noose

 

Then tell the sorry tale of the spent Princess

 

Her uncouth escort looking down her dress

 

Anyway they say that she wears the trousers

 

And learnt everything that she does

 

And doesn't know if she should tell him yes

 

Or let him go

 

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

 

And they put him in a suit of lights

Well it's a dog's life in a rope leash or a diamond collar

 

It's enough to make you think right now

But you don't bother

 

For goodness sake as you cry and shake

 

Let's keep you face down in the dirt where you belong

And think of all the pleasure that it brings

Though you know that it's wrong

 

And there's still life in your body

But most of it's leaving

 

Can't you give us all a break

Can't you stop breathing

 

And I thought I heard the working man's blues

 

I went to work that night and wasted my breath

 

Outside they're painting tar on somebody

 

It's the closest to a work of art that they will ever be

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

And they pulled him out of the cold cold ground

 

And they put him in a suit of lights

 

And they put him in a suit of lights

 

And they put him in a suit of lights
