      About "Tart"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Tart"

      Hear silver trumpets will trill in the Arabic streets of Seville
      Oranges roll in the gutter
      And you pick them up
      And peel back the skin
      To the red fruit within

      [Chorus:]
      But the flavor is..
      Tart
      And the flavor is...
      Tart

      Is it something you crave
      And you say that you only feel bitterness
      When you know it's a lie, lie, lie?

      Wild with a blackberry bush
      There were blossoms of cherries to crush
      There, at the edge of the asphalt tempting fingertips
      They stain your hands, press too hard
      They'll color your lips...

      [Chorus]

      Is it something you crave
      'Cause you say that you only feel bitterness
      Would it kill you to show us a little sweetness?

      [Chorus]

      Odd, where nothing else grows
      It was something like love that she chose
      Always a creature of habit
      When pity would do
      She wore down that heel with no feeling
      She kept on her shoes

      [Chorus]

      Nylon was hung from a peg
      And a kohl black seam ran down her leg
      Fishermen look for their nets
      And send their regrets
      But the bug lay there broken
      She spoke, "Is this some kind of joke?"

      But the flavor is...
      Tart
