Glitter Gulch - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Declan MacManus

Till them to madam X

Painted in a shocking pink spangled dress

Her teeth are perfect but her mouth is loose

 

Rubbing their hands together she persuades them that

It's better to confess

Which unpleasant fate they'd like to choose

 

Every step might be your last

Money signs are in your eyes sucker

 

You've been taken in this time

You might just get out alive if you're lucky

 

All the vultures tuning in to glitter Gulch

Are looking in on you

And they're

 

When he stood five feet tall

In his elevator shoes and stovepipe hat

He was known by several different names

 

Prompted by madam X he answered all their questions

And then after that he said

I'm sick and tired of stupid games

Every step might be your last

Money signs are in your eyes sucker

 

You've been taken in this time

You might just get out alive if you're lucky

 

All the vultures tuning in to glitter Gulch

Are looking in on you

And they're hungry

 

We've got prizes if you can afford

Some small humiliation before you get your reward

And I'd rather be an outlaw than an in law to you

And to live my life in miserable poverty

Than to have to grovel to have some dream home hovel

So watch me while I get away

With prime time robbery

 

As he enters madam X

Things of red raged faces and the sweet greenbacks

 

He climbed upon his honey and he

Covered her with money

 

As they do their victory dance

He thinks I hope they choke upon their laughter tracks

 

We can all go straight to hell

While we howl down the whole hotel

 

Every step might be your last

Money signs are in your eyes sucker

 

You've been taken in this time

You might just get out alive if you're lucky

 

All the vultures tuning in to glitter gulch

Are looking in on you

And they're hungry

Hungry hungry hungry
