Stella Hurt (Album Version) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

You should wear your red galoshes

Walking o'er the city pride

Streets are paved with heaven's pennies

 

Gutters full of suicides

 

Teddy steadily fell from grace

Somewhere near Arcadia

Once she overheard a voice

That she didn't hear on the radio

Velvet gloves and country clubs

Were never going to hold her

Ringing the necks of silly

Southern belles

 

Who wanted to scold her

 

Don't bring me down

 

I'm trouble bound

 

Blue song

Red Alert

Who made Stella Hurt

 

Teddy soon dropped out of sight

Turned up in another town

Changed her name for the spotlight

Singing like a blue bird in a sequin gown

 

She finally fell and married well

But I knew it wouldn't last

Reversing back into the limelight

No one ever saw her even half-plastered

 

Don't bring me down

 

I'm trouble bound

 

Blue song

Red Alert

Who made Stella Hurt

 

Then she saw those soldier boys

Throw their bonnets in the air

Self-made men would pledge their fortunes

And dream of her

And dream of her

 

Generals in the commissary opened up a case of wine

Checked the perfume of the cork

 

Said "Made in 1929"

 

They used her up to raise morale for money

And Old Glory

Her voice was shot beyond repair

But this is not the last act of this story

 

The night is black as cracked shellac

Abandoned in an attic

Stella is silent as the grave

Until the needle drags her through the static

 

Don't bring me down

I'm trouble bound

 

Blue song

Red Alert

Who made Stella Hurt
