    "Charm School" Lyrics

    Elvis Costello

    Men made out of monkeys
    Men made into mice
    Happy days are here again
    And all the drinks half price
    A girl with a trick and a man with a calling
    Trying to make a living out of your downfalling
    trying to make a living out of anything at all
    Didn't they teach you anything except how to be cruel
    In that charm school

    You and I as lovers
    Were nothing but a farce

    trying to make a silk purse
    out of a sow's arse
    Saying 'Why don't you watch me'
    Hardly speaking sotto voce

    I've got a notion
    I've got an angle
    Take your dreams and promises
    And put them through the mangle
    They say it's hell to finance too
    And I just want to romance you

    In this perpetual nightclub
    I'll be yours eternal
    Though the hours are long
    And the noise infernal
    just one shameful act or sometimes two
    we make believe we're making do
