Beaten to The Punch - Elvis Costello

you say that you'll get him and you run and get your mummy
and you're almost beaten to the punch
looking for the man who sold you the dummy
and you're almost beaten to the punch
laughing at the older guys who say it's just as well
saved by the wedding bell
almost beaten to the punch

you're looking for somebody that you can knock-about
you were almost beaten to the punch
if you've got a head for figures then you better count me out
you were almost beaten to the punch
you pull the piece but you soon call it love
you go ahead and end up
almost beaten to the punch

your body speaks so much louder than your voice
you let it do the talking so I don't have any choice
and now you find that younger guys are putting up resistance
and you're almost beaten to the punch
you'd better get out now because you'll never go the distance
and you're almost beaten to the punch
and you'll find a girl and you'll promise her anything
even a wedding ring
almost beaten to the punch
