remember this song?

Recommended Posts

lol, did you ever "find strange hands in your sweater"? :eek:

Don't tell me you don't know what love is

When you're old enough to know better

When you find strange hands in your sweater

When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote

I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions

And I'm giving you a longing look

Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book

Chapter One we didn't really get along

Chapter Two I think I fell in love with you

You said you'd stand by me in the middle of Chapter Three

But you were up to your old tricks in Chapters Four, Five and Six

The way you walk

The way you talk, and try to kiss me, and laugh

In four or five paragraphs

All your compliments and your cutting remarks

Are captured here in my quotation marks

Don't tell me you don't know the difference

Between a lover and a fighter

With my pen and my electric typewriter

Even in a perfect world where everyone was equal

I'd still own the film rights and be working on the sequel

And I'm giving you a longing look

Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book

Elvis Costello ROCKS!!! :aright:

I had the incredible priveledge of hearing him (and many others) at a Linda McCarthy tribute concert when I lived in London. He played "What's so funny about peace, love and understanding" and absolutely tore the roof off of the Prince Albert theater!

That may have been one of the best nights of my life.. I saw Elvis C, Sinade O'Conner (sp?), the pretenders, Tom Jones (so cool), George Michaels, that crazy African singing/dancing troop, and others that I think I'm forgetting. At the end of the night, Paul McCartney came on stage to thank everyone and while he was talking the lead singer came out with his old-school guitar! He played Let It Be, Love Me Do, and then everyone who had performed that night all came out with Acoustic guitars (there had to be 30 people on the stage) and all sang George Michael's faith! Absolutely incredible, plus it was free and I had front row seats! That kind of stuff NEVER happens to me!

Sorry about the boring babble/reminiscing. Thanks for reminding me of that awesome time! :D
