Less than zero Lyrics

Less than zero by Elvis Costello  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Less than zero Calling Mr Oswald with the swastika tattoo
There is a vacancy waiting in the English voodoo
Varving 'V' for vandal on the guilty boy's head
When he's had enough of that maybe you can take him to bed
To teach him he's alive before he wishes he was dead

Turn up the TV no one listening will suspect
Even your mother won't detect it
So your father won't know
They think that i've got no respect
But everything means less than zero
Hey
Oooh hey
Hey
Oooh hey

Oswald and his sister are doing it again
They've got the finest home movies that you have ever seen
They've got a thousand variations: every service with a smile
They're gonna take a little break and they'll be back after a while
Well, I hear that South America is coming into style

Turn up the TV no one listening will suspect
Even your mother won't detect it
So your father won't know
They think that i've got no respect
But everything means less than zero
Hey
Oooh hey
Hey
Oooh hey

A pistol was still smoking, a man lay on the floor
Mr Oswald said he had an understanding with the law
He said he'd hear about a couple in the USA
He said they'd traded thier baby for a Chevrolet
Let's talk about the future now we've put the past away

Turn up the TV no one listening will suspect
Even your mother won't detect it
So your father won't know
They think that i've got no respect
But everything means less than zero
Hey
Oooh hey
Hey
Oooh hey
Hey
Oooh hey
[repeat last 2 lines to fadeout]
