Living in Paradise  Elvis Costello

[D]I don't like those other guys looking at your curves. [G] [D] [G]
[D]I don't like you walking round with physical jerks. [G] [D] [G]
[D]Ev'rything they say and do is getting on my nerves. [G] [D] [G]
[D]Soon they will be lucky to be picking up the perks. [G] [D]
'C[G]ause w[F#m]hen they pull the shutters down and th[Bm]row up in the dark,
they'll [F#m]find out that all the dogs outside bite m[G]uch worse than they b[A]ark.
H[D]ere we are living in paradise, l[Em7]iving in luxury.[Bm]
Oh the[F#m], the thrill is here, but it w[Bm]on't last long.
You better[F#m] have your fun before it [E] moves along.
And you're [D] already loo[A]king for another,[Bm] a fool like m[G]e.
I call you Betty Felon 'cause you are a pretty villain.
And I think that I should tell them that you'd make a pretty killing.
'Cause meanwhile, up in heaven they are waiting at the gate,
saying, "We always knew you'd make it, didn't think you'd come this late.
And now it's much too dangerous to stop what you've begun
when ev'ryone in paradise carries a gun.
Here we are living in paradise...
Later in the evening when arrangements are made,
I'll be at the keyhole outside your bedroom door.
'Cause I'm the first to know whenever the plans are laid
that never go further than floor to floor.
You think that I don't know the boy that you're touching,
but I'll be at the video and I will be watching.
Here we are living in paradise...
Repeat and fade:
And you're [D] already loo[A]king for another,[Bm] a fool like m[G]e.
