Clowntime Is over - Elvis Costello

tears on your blackmail
they turn to ransom
a point of the fingernail
says you're so handsome

clowntime is over
time to take over
while others just talk and talk
somebody's watching where the others don't walk
clowntime is over

a voice in the shadows
says that his men know
he don't step back as expected
he's otherwise an unprotected


almost too good to be true
who do you?
What do you do?
Why do you do?
Everybody's hiding under covers
who's making lovers' lane
safe again for lovers
