Heathen Town - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Elvis Costello

We used to call it sin city now

 

It's gone way past that

 

Painting the town

And then

Burning it down

And even that's old hat

 

Now there's a choir of angles

And the fall of rome

Singing ave Maria

 

Or home sweet home

 

It's just a heathen town

I hear only evil

 

As my tongue is tightened

 

I used to be god fearing

Now I'm so frightened

'Cause the devil will drag you under

By the sharp tailfin

Of your checkered cab

Now I can't sit down

I'm going over board

In this heathen town

 

Starts as an a flirtation

And ends up as an expensive habit

 

With one eye on her place in debtor's

Prison and the other on a girl

Dressed as a rabbit

Now you can live forever

In your fits and starts

The only stake you cannot raise

Is the one driven through your heart

It's just a heathen town

I hear only evil

As my tongue is tightened

I used to be God fearing

Now I'm so frightened

'Cause the devil

Drag you under

By the sharp tailfin

Of your checkered cab

Now I can't sit down

I'm going over board

In this heathen town

 

An a flirtation

I'm going over board

In this heathen town

Ave

 

In this heathen town

 

In this heathen town

 

In this heathen town

 

In this heathen town

 

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha

Ah ha ha ha ha
