Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes - Elvis Costello


Red Shoes
Oh, I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused
But since their wings have gotten rusted,
you know the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain,
that's when I knew that I could not refuse
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

I was watching you while you're dancing away,
our love got fractured in the echo and sway
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
You know that it still hurts me just to say it
oh, I know that she's disgusted, feeling so abused.
She gets tired of the lust but it's so hard to refuse
How can you say that I'm too old
when the angels have stolen my red shoes?

Oh, I said I'm so happy I could die.
She said drop dead then left with another guy
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengenance
Ever since you got me punctured, this has been my sentence
Oh, I

Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. Red shoes
The angels wanna wear my red shoes
