Cheap Rewards

Elvis Costello

 GC
oh well i feel so loose tonight i might fall to pieces,
 DGD
so be prepared to sweep me out the door, 
 GC
and i might be horizontal by the time the evening ceases,
 DG
so i think i'll get acquainted with the floor.
 BC
but i was trying to get away from the things i usually do,
 DGD
"hello floorboards, once again, how are you?"  

Chorus
------

 GC
lip service, well that's all you'll ever get from me.
 DGD
how could you believe i'd take you seriously?  
 GC
with your cheap rewards, your blackmail and your comical rage,
 DG
just remember that you'll only be the boss as long you pay my wage.

Well all the signposts on this road they all point one way,
don't act like you're above me, just look at your shoes.
i'll turn the light out now 'cause there's nothing left to say,
and it's all been lost befor so there's nothing left to lose.
 BC
oh but you could say that you loved me very painlessly
 DGD
i would have done the same for you  but you said to me.....
