Mystery Dance

Elvis Costello1977年2月14日

歌詞

Romeo was restless he was ready to kill

He jumped out the window cause he couldn't sit still

Juliet was waiting with a safety net

He said "Don't bury me cause I'm not dead yet"

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance

I wanna know about the mystery dance

Why don't you show me

'Cause I've tried and I've tried

And I'm still mystified

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

Well I remember Friday night when the lights went out

And I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt

She thought that I knew and I thought that she did

So both of us were willing but we didn't know how to do it

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance

I wanna know about the mystery dance

Why don't you show me

'Cause I've tried and I've tried

And I'm still mystified

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

 

Well I was underneath the covers in the middle of the night

Tryin' to discover my left foot from my right

You can see those pictures in any magazine

But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean

Why don't you tell me 'bout the mystery dance

I wanna know about the mystery dance

Why don't you show me

Cause I've tried and I've tried

And I'm still mystified

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied
