      About "Button My Lip"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Imposters - "Button My Lip"

      Don't want to talk about the government
      Don't want to talk about some incident
      Don't want to talk about some peppermint gum
      Don't want to talk about the time to come

      Button my lip
      'Til I'm smart enough

      Don't raise your hand
      'Cos I'm not offering
      It serves you right
      Now you are suffering
      Give me a chance
      To see it though
      It all depends on what you hold is true

      Button my lip
      With your kiss

      Don't want to hear some little sniveling
      You just don't get what I'm delivering
      Maybe you want me
      But you know you can't
      I'd say, 'I want you?
      But you know I don't

      Button my lip
      'Til I'm old enough
      'Til I'm smart enough
      'Til I'm?
      Button my lip

      Don't want to come at your beckoning
      For any day they'll be a reckoning
      Don't want to hear what is impossible
      Baby, you've become invisible

      Button my lip

      I've seen those clowns vacant and insolent
      I stand accused but I am innocent
      I am the mighty and magnificent
