Love for Tender - Elvis Costello

you won't take my love for tender
you can put your money where your mouth is
but you're so unsure
I could be a miser or a big spender
but you might get much more than you bargained for

check not or checkmate
class not or classmate
so beautiful and fortunate
you're the one who hates to love
but he's the one who loves to hate

and he can fix you awful good
because he is the neighborhood
you can get money for blood
blood money for doing no good
better tell me now you made your selection
are your ready for correction
'cause the wages of sin are an expensive infection
they'll make you bankrupt
better pay off now don't interrupt

I'm so in love and I'm so sincere
just like a well-known financier
you know I've never been corrupt
I'll pay you a compliment
you'll think I am innocent
you can total up the balance sheet
and never know if I am a common thief

you won't take my love for tender
