      About "Sunday's Best"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Attractions - "Sunday's Best"

      Sunday's best
      Times are tough for English babies
      Send the army and the navy
      Beat up strangers who talk funny
      Take their greasy foreign money
      Skin shop, red leather, hot line
      Be prepared for the engaged sign
      Bridal books, engagement rings
      And other wicked little things

      [Chorus:]
      Standing in your socks and vest
      Better get it off your chest
      Every day is just like the rest
      But Sunday's best

      Stylish slacks to suit your pocket
      Back supports and picture lockets
      Sleepy towns and sleeper trains
      To the dogs and down the drains
      Major roads and ladies smalls
      Hearts of oak and long trunk calls
      Continental interference
      At death's door with life insurance

      [Chorus]

      Sunday's best, Sunday's finest
      When your money's in the minus
      And you suffer from your shyness
      You can listen to us whiners

      Don't look now under the bed
      An arm, a leg and a severed head
      Read about the private lives
      The songs of praise, the readers' wives
      Listen to the decent people
      Though you treat them just like sheep
      Put them all in boots and khaki
      Blame it all upon the darkies

      [Chorus]

      Sunday's best
