Inch By Inch

Elvis Costello

      You can take a powder you can take a drink

     You can keep the shrink and the kitchen sink

 Write my name in heaven in invisible ink

       I just woke up from dreaming,     I think

*verse 2*

    You can take me over you can give me a lip

    You can take me under you can give me the slip

 Take off everything or tear me off a strip

 Like a lady in the camber and another in the clip


 Don't move a muscle baby

 Don't even flinch

You can miss me by a mile

 Or just inch by inch

Inch by inch, Inch by inch

 You can pull me up again inch by inch

Inch by inch, as pulses race

I long to see that look upon your face      

*verse 3 same as verse 2*
You can take me outside you can take me apart
You can take me upstairs you can take me to heart
You made me love you when you thought you were smart
Don't try to stop me when you told me to start

*same as other chorus*
Don't move a muscle baby
Don't even flinch
You can miss me by a mile
Or just inch by inch

Inch by inch, Inch by inch
You can pull me up again inch by inch
Inch by inch, as pulses race
I long to see that look upon your face

Em F#m Bm (fade)
I long to see that look upon your face

Bm Bm/A Bm/F# Em F#m G
