Chewing Gum - Elvis Costello

With their cardboard hands by their sides

 

Here's a naked man and lady

And they're yours to cut out and keep

So you can dress them up maybe

 

They don't know just who they are or who they're

Supposed to be

You can make them happy or sad

Or assume their identity

 

So here they are in the departure lounge

 

It's the gateway to the east

She is just another mail order bride

She doesn't know he's a kinky beast

 

So he gives her a picture of maradona and child

She wants to roll and rock

As he spills his beer over her bumps and he

Grinds as he repeats bang cock

 

There must be something that is better than this

It starts with a slap and ends up with a kiss

Begins with you bawling and it ends up in tears

Oh my little one take that chewing gum out of

Your ears

 

She might as well be in the jungle

 

She might as well be on the moon

He's away on a business trip in Dusseldorf but

She's becoming immune

To the lack of glamor and danger in a west

German city today

The nearest she comes to the dynasty he

Promised her

Is a Chinese takeaway

There must be something that is better than this

It starts with a slap and ends up with a kiss

Begins with you bawling and it ends up in tears

 

Oh my little one take that chewing gum out of

Your ears

 

Though he only taught her three little words it

Doesn't matter if they're dirty or clean

He can only control what they look like

He can never possess what they mean

 

Now he wants to whisper in her ear

All the shrinking nothingness

But something always comes between them

I wonder if you can guess

 

There must be something that is better than this

It starts with a slap and ends up with a kiss

Begins with you bawling and it ends up in tears

Oh my little one take that chewing gum out of

Your ears
