    ...And In Every Home

      About "...And In Every Home"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Attractions - "...And In Every Home"

      You turn to the sinister when you get the boot
      Sliding down the banister in your Sunday suit
      Lying on a slag heap of blankets and magazines
      She`s only thirty-five going on seventeen
      You`d better roll over and go to sleep if you don`t come clean

      [Chorus:]
      And in every home there will be lots of time
      I will be all yours you might have been admired

      They say they`re very sorry but you are not desired
      Oh heaven preserve us
      Oh heaven preserve us
      Oh heaven preserve us
      Because they don`t deserve us

      Holding your life in your hand
      With an artificial limp wrist
      And so a young blade becomes a has-been
      Looking for a new twist

      A year after the wedding he broke all their china plates
      He`s in prison now she`s running with his mates
      Sees him every Sunday
      And he asks her where she`s been
      She`s only thirty-five going on seventeen
      She`s going to cop a packet if he ever finds her
      In between the sheets

      [Chorus]
