Elvis Costello Clowntime Is Over Lyrics

Last updated:

Tears on your blackmail
Written to ransom
A point of the fingernail
Says that he's handsome

[Chorus:]
Clowntime is over
Time to take cover
While others just talk and talk
Somebody's watching where the others don't walk
Clowntime is over

A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He don't step back as expected
He's otherwise and unprotected

[Chorus]

Almost too good to be true
Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
While everybody's hiding under covers
Who's making lover's lane safe again for lovers?

[Chorus]
