      About "Everyday I Write The Book"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Everyday I Write The Book"

      Don't tell me you don't know what love is
      When you're old enough to know better
      When you find strange hands in your sweater
      When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote
      I'm a man with a mission on two or three editions.

      And I'm giving you a longing look
      Everyday
      Everyday
      Everyday I write the book.
      Chapter One: We didn't really get along.
      Chapter Two: I think I fell in love with you.
      You said you'd stand by me in the middle of Chapter Three

      But you were up to your old tricks in Chapters Four
      Five and Six.
      And I'm giving you a longing look...
      The way you walk
      The way you talk and try to kiss me
      And laugh in four or five paragraphs.
      All your compliments and your cutting remarks
      Are captured here in my quotation marks.

      And I'm giving you a longing look...
      Everyday I write the book.
      Don't tell me you don't know the difference
      Between a lover and a fighter.
      With my pen and my electric typewriter
      Even in a perfect world where everyone was equal
      I'd still own the film rights and be working on the sequel.

      And I'm giving you a longing look...
      Everyday
      Everyday
      Everyday I write the book.
      Everyday
      Everyday
      Everyday
      Everyday I write the book...
