Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Imposter  Elvis Costello

[G]Trying to be too bad
[C]Trying to talk too tough
[G]Trying to jack the lad
[F]You'd think he'd had enough
[F]But he's not the man you'd [G]think that he can be
[C]I just don't know why you can't [F]see
[F]That he is [G]only the im[C]poste[Em]r     [Am]      [F]
[C]That [Em]he is [Am]only t[F]he im[C]poste[Em]r     [Am]      [F]
You've never been this far
You've always been too smart
And you know all our boys
Are really girls at heart

But he's not...

[Am]When I said that I was lying I [Em]might have been lying
Am G C Em Am F x4
Never let me hear you say you're not trying No!

This is your big decision
Hope you're not disappointed
He's got double vision
When you want him double jointed

And he's not...

He'll only bring you souvenirs
It's only gonna end in tears
And he is only the imposter
