      About "Living In Paradise"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Attractions - "Living In Paradise"

      I don't like those other guys looking at your curves
      I don't like you walking 'round with physical jerks
      Everything they say and do is getting on my nerves
      Soon they will be lucky to be picking up the perks
      'Cause when they pull the shutters down and throw up in the dark
      They'll find that all the dogs outside bite much worse than they bark

      [Chorus:]
      Here we are living in paradise, living in luxury
      Oh, the thrill is here but it won't last long
      You better have your fun before it moves along
      And you're already looking for another fool like me

      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 everyone in paradise carries a gun

      [Chorus:]

      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

      [Chorus:]
