Coal Train Robberies - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Yesterday's coal train came to rest in the bitter

Cutting

 

And as the signals took an age to change it

Was

Easy pickings

 

So you go to the movies where they smash it

Up

You want to feel your heart pumping it makes

You feel good

All through the karaoke girls were squealing

The hits wali

As another Mercedes benz gets blown to bits

 

While all the time in the camp town theaters

Of piccadilly

 

They're going to throw a black face minstrel

Show for the barefoot children

They're always selling

 

They'll say it's quaint as the guilty ones faint

And claim they ain't underneath this paint

 

Interrupt these liberal saints with their

Whips and watermelon

 

Reports are coming in of a coal train robbery

 

It's like another world or it had better be

 

So we return to whitewashed pout of his

Committed lips

Since he was declared the long lost fountain

Of youth that drips and drips and drips

 

They'll be sending him round from door to door

 

To sell you back what's already yours

So many good deeds so little time

Say the advertising agency swine

When man has destroyed what he thinks he owns

I hope no living thing cries over his bones

If you don't believe that I'm going for good

You can count the days I'm gone and chop up

The chairs for firewood

 

Reports are coming in of a coal train robbery

 

It's like another world or it had better be

 

Reports are coming in of a coal train robbery

 

It's like another world or it had better be

 

Reports

 

Reports

 

Reports

 

Reports
