      About "Any King's Shilling"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Any King's Shilling"

      You're a fine one, oh yes you are
      You're a fine one just like me
      And we're friends now, oh wouldn't you say?
      We've been friends now, oh haven't we?
      Stay at home tonight if you know what's good for you
      I can't say more it would be telling
      For if you don't what will become of you
      Just isn't worth any king's shilling

      I will answer when they make that call, pull upon this ragged uniform
      Up 'til now I know it's been your trade
      Spit and polish the potato parade
      Stay at home tonight if you know what's good for you
      I can't say more it would be telling
      For if you don't what will become of you
      Just isn't worth any king's shilling

      Please don't put your silly head in that pretty soldier's hat
      You've done your duty, that's enough of that

      I don't know if what I'm doing is right
      I don't know if you should be forgiving
      But for me it seems it means my life
      While for you it could just be a living
      Stay at home tonight if you know what's good for you
      I can't say more it would be telling
      For if you don't what will become of you
      Just isn't worth any king's shilling

      Please don't put your silly head in that British soldier's hat
      You've done your duty that's enough of that

      You're a fine one, oh yes you are
      You're a fine one, just like me
