Cheap Reward - Elvis Costello

Oh well I feel so loose tonight I might fall to pieces
So be prepared to sweep me out the door
And I might be horizontal by the time the music ceases
So I think I'll get accuainted with the floor

Oh I was tryin' a get away from the things that I alway do
Hello floorboards once again, how are you?

Chorus:
Lip service, that's all you ever get from me
Well how could you believe I'd take you seriously
With your cheap rewards, your blackmail and your comical rage
You just remember you'll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage

All the sign posts on this road they point one way
Don't act like your above me just look at your shoes
I'll turn the light out now 'cause ther's nothin' more to say
And it's all been lost before, so there's nothin' to lose

Oh, but you could say that you love me very painlessly
I would'a done the same for you, oh but you said to me

-chorus-

Just remember you'll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage
