      About "Waiting For The End Of The World"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Waiting For The End Of The World"

      The man from the television crawled into the train
      I wonder who he's gonna stick it in this time
      Everyone was looking for a little entertainment
      So they'll probably pull his hands off when they find out his name
      And then they shut down the power all along the line
      And we got stuck in the tunnel where no lights shine
      They got to touchin', all the girls were scared to call out
      Nobody was saying anything at all

      We were waiting for the end of the world
      Waiting for the end of the world
      Waiting for the end of the world
      Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're coming
      'Cause you really started something

      Things got back to normal as the train began to roll again
      We got to the station about 20 minutes later
      The legendary hitch-hiker says that he knows where it's at
      Now he'd like to go to Spain or somewhere like that
      With his two-tone Bible and his funny cigarettes
      His suntan lotion and his castanets

      He was waiting for the end of the world
      Waiting for the end of the world
      Waiting for the end of the world
      Dear Lord, I sincerely hope you're coming
      'Cause you really started something

      And then the bride, the groom, the congregation and the priest
      All got onto the train when we were three stations east, yeah
      Hiding from a scandal in the national press
      They had been trying to get married since they stole the wedding dress
      You may see them drowning as you stroll along the beach
      But don't throw out the lifeline till they're clean out of reach

      Waiting for the end of the world
      Waiting for the end of the world...
