The Imposter - Elvis Costello

trying to be too bad
trying to talk too tough
trying to jack the lad
you think you've had enough

CHORUS:
but he's not the man you think that he can be
I just don't know why you can't see
that he is only the imposter
that he is only the imposter

never been this far
always been too smart
and you know how all boys are
they're really girls at heart

chorus

when I said that I was lying
I might have been lying
never let me hear you say you're not trying

this is your big decision
hope you're not disappointed
he's got double-vision
when you want him double-jointed

and he's not the man you think that he can be
I just don't know why you can't see
he'll only bring you souvenirs
it's only going to end in tears
and he is only the imposter
and he is only the imposter
