Jack Of All Parades - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Declan MacManus

When we first met I didn't know what to do

My old love lines were all worn out on you

And the world walked round at my mouth

 

They lit me up and they snuffed me out

 

Everybody's boy

But soon that thrill just fades

 

To be the love of one true heart

Or the Jack of all parades

 

You won't know who to thank

You won't know who to blame

It's just a part of the murdering game

 

Cause down in the fleshpots

 

Where they pay you in pounds

They're laughing like drains

And baying like bloodhounds

For the Jack of all parades

 

The Jack of all parades

 

Once I knew a girl

That looked so much like Judy Garland

That people would stop and give her money

 

And everybody was Frankie Jimmy or Bobby

 

Not the Jack the Jack of all parades

 

Oh the Jack the Jack of all parades

 

Oh the Jack of all parades

 

Now the way that I feel is no longer news

 

You know my love and how to refuse it

 

Cause you know where the door is

And how to use it

 

Oh you know you do

 

My checkered past

To this shattered terrace

Where you can't keep your mind off

The crimes of Paris

And you can't keep your peace

 

And try to forget it

And I can't forgive you

For things you haven't done yet

Oh I was anybody's boy

But soon that thrill just fades

 

To be the love of one true heart

 

Or the Jack of all parades

 

When we first met I didn't know what to do

My old love lines were all worn out on you

And the world walked 'round my mouth

 

I didn't mean to say it

I just blurted it out

As you pretended not to notice

Or be taken aback

 

And I loved you there and then

It's as simple as that

 

Oh I was everybody's boy

But soon that thrill just fades

 

To be the love of one true heart

 

Or the Jack of all parades

 

To be the love of one true heart

Or the Jack of all parades

Oh the Jack of all parades
