Just About Glad - Elvis Costello

I'm just about glad that I knew you once
And it was more than just a passing acquaintance
I'm just about glad that it was a memory
That doesn't need constant maintenance
Now I've a few things that I regret
But nothing that I need to forget
For all of the courage that we never had
I'm just about glad

Chorus:
Just about glad
We didn't do that thing
Just about glad
We didn't have that fling
Just about glad
We didn't give it a try
Just about glad
Is that a tear in your eye

And all the few times I rang and proposed
There was a man there or so I suppose
The greatest lover that you never had
I'm just about glad

They call time in vodka and lime
It's far from Canadian Club
(Just about glad)
And there I was just waiting to fall
Like a toe just aching to stub
(Just about glad)
Later on I could never accept it
When you finally gave it all to him
(Just about glad)
And you said that my nurse was sweet
But her lamp was just beginning to dim

I'm just about glad that we never did
That thing that we were going to do
I'm just about glad I can look you in the eye
But I can't say the same for you
And though the passion still flutters and flickers
It never got into our knickers
For all of the courage that you never had
I'm just about, I'm just about
I'm just about, I'm just about

-chorus-

And it was all just a stupid creation
Of my feverish imagination
I'm the greatest lover that you never had
I'm just about, I'm just about
I'm just about, I'm just about

-chorus-
Is that a tear in your eye (x2)
