      About "Harpies Bizarre"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Harpies Bizarre"

      He selects the plainest face form a spiteful row of girls
      Elegant insulted women, a flaw of cultured pearls
      He drops a name or two, she fails to catch
      At last he`s met his match
      Unspoiled and unaffected, he wants her so much

      She puts up half-hearted resistance, like she was taught to do
      She`s heard some of those small town playboys but this is something new
      His promise seems dangerous, she`d like to believe
      He says "You`d better leave"
      "You`ve only got yourself to blame, shame, or deceive"

      The waiting lines are long
      They never get too far
      Everyone wearing that medal with pride
      Harpies Bizarre

      I looked on but hesitated
      I failed to interrupt
      You`re so hard to tell the truth to
      So easy to corrupt
      I`ll memorize your face
      Your tragic smile
      The hurt look in your eyes
      As you betrayed yourself to the part of him that dies

      The waiting lines are long
      They never get too far
      They`re shining up their shoes to kick a falling star
      You think you should be somebody
      But you don`t know who you are
      Everyone wearing that medal with pride
      Harpies Bizarre
