Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

We may seem happy like everything's alright

But from the outside looking in

Everything's uptight

But deep down inside we're covering up the pain

It's an old thing

It's a soul thing

But it's a real thing

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

 

One another

There's old dude standing on the corner

Waiting for a fox to pass

The only thing he's got to go by

Is this is where he saw her last

And there's old John two dollars in his pocket

Talking loud and thinks he's rich

And look for little fool too cool to go to school

Get a job in two days he quits

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

Is that the truth

One another

Yeah you're right

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

One another

 

Mama get up early early in the morning

Papa's already gone

Going out a-working for half of what he's worth now

You know that it's wrong

What happen to the Liberty Bell I heard so much about

Did it really ding-dong

 

It must have dinged wrong

It didn't ding long

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

Is that the truth

One another

Yeah you're right

 

Mama get up early early in the morning

Papa's already gone

 

Working two jobs for half of what he's worth now

You know that it's wrong

What happen to the Liberty Bell I heard so much about

Did it really ding-dong

 

It must have dinged wrong

It didn't ding long

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

Is that the truth

One another

Yeah you're right

Pray tell what's gonna happen to brother

Who's gonna help him get further

One another

Is that the truth

One another

Yeah you're right

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah

 

Did it really ding-dong

 

It didn't ding long

 

Did it really ding-dong

It didn't ding long
