      About "Goon Squad"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Attractions - "Goon Squad"

      Mother, Father, I'm here in the zoo
      I can't come home 'cause I've grown up too soon
      I got my sentence
      I got my command
      They said they'd make me major if I met all their demands

      I could be a corp'ral into corp'ral punishment
      Or the gen'ral manager of a large establishment
      They pat some good boys on the back and put some to the rod
      But I never thought they'd put me in the

      Goon squad
      They've come to look you over and they're giving you the eye
      Goon squad
      They want you to come out to play
      You'd better say goodbye

      Some grow just like their dads
      And some grow up too tall
      Some go drinking with the lads
      Some are no fun at all

      And you must find the proper place
      For everything you see
      But you'll never get to make a lampshade out of me

      I could join a chain of males or be the missing link
      Looking for a lucky girl to put me in the pink
      They pat some good boys on the back and put some to the rod
      But I never thought they'd put me in the

      Good squad...

      Mother, Father, I'm doing so well
      I'm making such progress now that you can hardly tell
      I fit in a little dedication
      With one eye on the clock
      They caught you under medication
      You could be in for a shock

      Thinking up the alibis that ev'ryone's forgotten
      Just another mummy's boy gone to rotten
      They pat some good boys on the back and put some to the rod
      But I never thought they'd put me in the

      Goon squad...
