Watching The Detectives (小心偵探) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Nice girls not one with a defect

 

Cellophane shrink-wrapped so correct

 

Red dogs under illegal legs

 

She looks so good that he gets down and begs

 

She is watching the detectives

 

Ooh he's so cute she is watching the detectives

 

When they shoot shoot shoot shoot

 

They beat him up until the teardrops start

 

But he can't be wounded 'cause he's got no heart

 

Long shot at that jumping sign

 

Invisible shivers running down my spine

 

Cut to baby taking off her clothes

 

Close-up of the sign that says 'We never close'

 

He snatch at you and you match his cigarette (unverified)

She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet

I don't know how much more of this I can take

 

She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake

 

She is watching the detectives

 

Ooh he's so cute she is watching the detectives

 

When they shoot shoot shoot shoot

 

They beat him up until the teardrops start

 

But he can't be wounded 'cause he's got no heart

 

You think you're alone until you realize you're in it

Now fear is here to stay love is here for a visit

They call it instant justice when it's past the legal limit

Someone's scratching at the window I wonder who is it

The detectives come to check if you belong to the parents

Who are ready to hear the worst

About their daughter's disappearance

Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay

It only took my little fingers to blow you away

 

Just like watching the detectives

 

Don't get cute it's just like watching the detectives

 

I get so angry when the teardrops start

 

But he can't be wounded 'cause he's got no hearts

 

Watching the detectives

 

It's just like watching the detectives

 

Watching the detectives

 

Watching the detectives

 

Watching the detectives
