SOME LYRICS I LIKE FROM ELVIS COSTELLO'S FIRST THREE ALBUMS

I know the last thing the world needs is another white aging alterna-lit dude to like Elvis Costello but I'm playing old vinyl and feeling sentimental.
  1. They've been giving you a bad reputation just because you've never been denied. (Miracle Man)
  2. I'm her soft touch typewriter and she's the great dictator. (Two Little Hitlers)
  3. Who put these fingerprints on my imagination? (Green Shirt)
  4. No don't ask me to apologize, I won't ask you to forgive me, but if I'm gonna go down, you're gonna come with me. (Hand in hand)
  5. The things in my head start hurting my mind (No Action)
  6. There's so many fish in the sea, that only rise up in the sweat and smoke like mercury (accidents will happen)
  7. I don't want to be a lover I just want to be a victim (The Beat)
  8. She gets tired of the lust but it's so hard to refuse (red shoes)
  9. He's such a drag, he's not insane, it's just that everybody has to feel his pain (no dancing)
  10. Oh I just want to hear girls talk, I got a loaded imagination being fired by girls talk (girls talk)
