      About "Invasion Hit Parade"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Invasion Hit Parade"

      Now that you set everybody free
      What are you going to do about me?
      Don`t want to be treated like some poor grateful clown
      I`d rather go back to the sweet underground
      Where I can tell by the color of my skin
      And I know my neighbor `cos he`s the one, yes he`s the one
      Who always turns me in

      A woman works the tunnel in the middle of the night
      Picking up every lost object in sight
      Handbags, toupees, lost legs and fingernails
      The black market eats up all your failures
      Her transistor offers no salvation or regrets
      No pool, no pets, no cigarettes
      Just non-stop Disco Tex and the Sex-o-lettes

      [Chorus:]
      There`s no name, no name for the place
      Or pain we`ll cause you again and again
      If you do not co-operate with the invasion hit parade

      The liberation forces make movies of their own
      Playing their Doors records and pretending to be stoned
      Drowning out a broadcast that wasn't authorized
      Incidentally the revolution will be televised
      With one head for business and another for good looks
      Until they started arriving with their rubber aprons and their butcher`s hooks

      [Chorus:]

      They`re hunting us down here with Liberty`s light
      A handshaking double talking procession of the mighty
      Pursued by a T.V. crew and coming after them
      A limousine of singing stars and their brotherhood anthem
      The former dictator was impeccably behaved
      They`re mopping up all the stubborn ones who just refuse to be saved

      [Chorus:]
