      About "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man"

      You push me when I`m falling
      And then you put me down
      I guess I missed my calling
      I should have been a clown

      How much more
      How much more can I stand
      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man

      You put me on the right track
      And then you put me down
      You stab me in the back
      Every time I turn around

      Criticize my lovin`
      When I`m doing the very best I can
      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man
      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man
      You treat me like
      The fool that I am
      You bet that I like everything you do
      Put salt in my wounds
      It`s sad but it`s true

      You warm me with your kisses
      Then you leave me in the cold
      How can I know your wishes
      When I`ve never been told
      Won`t you please forgive me
      Just try and understand
      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man

      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man
      You treat me like
      The fool that I am
      You bet that I like everything you do
      Put salt in my wounds
      It`s sad but it`s true

      You warm me with your kisses
      Then you leave me in the cold
      How can I know your wishes
      When I've never been told
      Won`t you please forgive me
      Just try and understand
      You`re pouring water
      On a poor drowning man

      I got tears in my eyes
      Oh, I`m a drowning man
      I got tears in my eyes
      You`re pouring water
      On a drowning man
      You`re pouring water
      On a poor drowning man
