5ive Gears in Reverse - Elvis Costello

five gears in reverse
girls looking for the big lift
somebody send out for the night nurse
please don't stick me on the late shift

if you don't know by now
nobody's going to tell you
if you don't know by now
the shock will probably kill you

CHORUS:
and if your patience is exhausted
and you still cannot decide
you're sitting in a garage
contemplating suicide
and you have no motivation
you can't even catch your breath
all the business and celebrations
is driving you to debt

five gears in reverse
you think I don't know what I'm doing
and at a fashionable first
like walking down the road to ruin
but if you're safe and sound
don't let me interrupt you
And if you don't go down
How could I corrupt you

chorus
