I'll Wear It Proudly  Elvis Costello



I [D]hate these flaming curtains
They're not the [A]color of your hair
I [G]hate these striplights
They're not so un[D]doing as your stare
I h[D]ate the buttons on your shirt
When all I want to do is [G]tear
[G]I hate this bloody big bed of mine
When you're not [A]here
Well I [D]finally found some[D/C#]one to turn me [Bm]upside [G]down
And [D]nail my feet up [F#m]where my head should [A]be
If they [D]had a King of [D/C#]Fools then I could [Bm]wear that [G]crown
And [D]you can all die laughing
Cos [F#m]I'll wear it [D]proudly
Organ (2 times)

Well you semm to be shivering dear
And the room is awfully warm
In the white and scarlet billows
That subside beyond the storm
You have this expression dear
No words could take its place
And I wear it like a badge
That you put all over my face
[A]I'll wear it proudly
Through the [G]dives and the [D]dancehalls
If [A]you'll wear it proudly
Through the [G]snakepits and [D]catcalls
Like a [A]fifteen year [G]old kid
Wears a [D]vampire [Bm]kiss
If [G]you don't know what is wrong with me
Then you don't know what you've [A]missed
We are arms and legs
Wrapped round more than my memory tonight
When the bell rang out
And the air turned blue from fright
But in shameless moments
You made more of me than just a mess
And a handful of eagerness
Says "What do you suggest?"
