      About "Black Sails In The Sunset"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Black Sails In The Sunset"

      Vain boys are gonna have to swallow their pride this time
      So let the punishment fit the crime
      It's under the table
      Under your skin
      Into the cable
      Is this the death of the glory you're in?

      [Chorus]
      Black sails in the sunset
      White noise going yakety-yak
      All the money in the world will never bring your body back
      Is it some mysterious dance nobody can do?
      Thought I knew all the steps quite clearly
      I don't have a clue
      Oooh

      You're Cinderella with a ball and chain
      And the shoe seems to fit you
      You tell the truth sometimes but
      You wouldn't know it if it hit you
      Is this some new trick
      Wired up in your head?
      Do you make me sick
      Or was I just force fed?

      [Chorus]
