      About "You Tripped At Every Step"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "You Tripped At Every Step"

      Take your tiny feet out of your mother's shoes
      Or there is going to be a terrible scene
      It's not just the lipstick drawn on crooked
      When they find how wicked we are
      How wicked we have been
      How I've been tempted

      [Chorus]
      How you tripped at every step
      You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      How you tripped at every step

      There's a merry tune that starts in "I"
      And ends in "You," like many famous pop songs do
      You would sing along with little tell-tale staggers
      While balancing on daggers
      Though they were killing you
      You looked so deadly

      [Chorus]

      And I would try to catch you
      Anytime you call
      Only you drank that potion
      And went out of control
      There's nothing to stop you
      So how can you fall?
      Let me take your hand
      Put down that frying pan

      Darkness would become me underneath the table
      As the fury raged around the house
      Your despairing tread was angry and unstable
      You never suspected
      Just as that cartoon mouse
      Went undetected

      So you tripped at every step
      In another world of gin and cigarettes
      Those cocktail cabinets put mud in your eye
      Maybe that is why you find it hard to see me
      And if you don`t believe me
      Before you start to cry
      "Don't ever leave me"

      As you start to lose your grip
      (Once you start losing your grip)
      You will stumble as you slip
      (And you will stumble and slip)
      As you tripped at every step
      You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      As you tripped at every step
