      About "My Science Fiction Twin"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "My Science Fiction Twin"

      My science fiction twin
      Is doing better than expected
      He captured a little blond trophy wife
      Who's really very well connected
      And when he calls home with his alibi
      She says "Is this really necessary?"
      But she knows that a man can't be a man
      Unless he's punishing his secretary
      He sips in the glow of a '61 vintage
      Just as the day is dimming
      With every intention of surrendering
      To fifty-foot women
      Who put the fascination back into my science fiction twin

      My science fiction twin
      Decided to become invisible
      He has my eyes, my face, my voice
      But he's only happy when I`m miserable
      The words flew from his mouth
      And they were gently gathered by reporters
      Trying to frame his once infamous flame
      With tattered pictures of her daughter
      Her hair is all made out of porcupine
      Her figure is fantastic
      But as you know, they corrupted her
      So they`re being sarcastic
      Who put the fascination back into my science fiction twin

      He'll scream and shout
      Everything is working out just as he predicted
      Pride and position in the gallery of attempted people
      Oh and the pain is so sweet
      Better stamp his little feet
      And you'll even have time to pity me
      How can you feel content?
      You wonder where this fellow went

      My science fiction twin
      Escorted by his lovely nieces
      Filled up his purse dictating verse
      While painting masterpieces
      His almost universal excellence
      Is starting to disturb me
      They asked how in the world he does all these things
      And he answered "Superbly"
      He's trapped in his own parallel dimension
      That's why I`m so forgiving
      But how could I possibly forget to mention those fifty-foot women
      Who put the fascination back into my science fiction twin

      My science fiction twin [Repeat: x4]
