Cheap Rewards  Elvis Costello

so [D]be prepared to sweep me out the [G]door,[D]
and i [G]might be horizontal by the [C]time the evening ceases,
so i [D]think i'll get acquainted with the [G]floor.
but i was [B]trying to get away from the things i [C]usually do,
"he[D]llo floorboards, once again, [G]how are you?" [D]

lip [G]service, well that's all you'll ever [C]get from me.
how[D] could you believe i'd take you [G]seriously? [D]
with [G]your cheap rewards, your blackmail and your [C]comical rage,
just [D]remember that you'll only be the boss as long you pay my [G]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.
oh but you [B]could say that you loved me very [C]painlessly
i would have [D]done the same for you  but you [G]said to me.[D]....
