歌詞

歌曲:Waiting For The End Of The World

歌手:Elvis Costello

 

The man from the television crawled into the train

I wonder who he's gonna stick it in this time

Everyone was looking for a little entertainment'

So they'll probably pull his hands off

When they find out his name

And then they shut down the power all along the line'

And we got stuck in the tunnel where no lights shine

They got to touching all the girls were to scared to call out

Nobody was saying anything at all

 

We were waiting for the end of the world'

Waiting for the end of the world'

Waiting for the end of the world

Dear Lord I sincerely hope you're coming

'Cause you really started something

 

Things got back to normal as the train began to roll again

We got to the station about twenty minutes later

 

The legendary hitchhiker says that he knows where it's at

Now he'd like to go to Spain or somewhere like that'

With his two-tone Bible and his funny cigarettes'

His suntan lotion and his castanets

He was waiting for the end of the world'

Waiting for the end of the world'

Waiting for the end of the world

Dear Lord I sincerely hope you're coming

'Cause you really started something

And then the bride' the groom' the congregation and the priest

All got onto the train when we were three stations east' yeah

 

Hiding from a scandal in the national press'

They had been trying to get married since they stole the wedding dress

You may see them drowning as you stroll along the beach'

 

But don't throw out the lifeline till they're clean out of reach

We were waiting for the end of the world'

 

Waiting for the end of the world'

Waiting for the end of the world

Waiting for the end of the world
