Riot Act (取締暴動法) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Forever doesn't mean forever anymore

 

I said forever

 

But it doesn't look like I'm gonna be around much anymore

 

When the heat gets sub-tropical

 

And the talk gets so topical

Riot act you can read me the riot act

 

You can make me a matter of fact

Or a villain in a million

A slip of the tongue is gonna keep me civilian

 

Why do you talk such stupid nonsense

When my mind could rest much easier

 

Instead of all this dumb dumb insolence

I would be happier with amnesia

 

They say forget her

 

Now it looks like you're either gonna be before me or against me

 

I got your letter

 

Now they say I don't care for the colour that it paints me

 

Trying to be so bad is bad enough

Don't make me laugh by talking tough

Don't put your heart out on your sleeve

When your remarks are off the cuff

Riot act you can read me the riot act

 

You can make me a matter of fact

Or a villain in a million

A slip of the tongue is gonna keep me civilian

 

Riot act you can read me the riot act

 

You can make me

 

Riot act you can read me the riot act

 

You can read me the riot act

 

You can read me the riot act

 

Ooh
