EVERYDAY I WRITE THE BOOK

Good Morning Team - time to get up, put water on my face, drink coffee, and write the book just like Elvis Costello sings - S.L.



Don't tell me you don't know
what love is
When you're old enough to know
better
When you find strange hands in
your sweater
When your dreamboat
turns out to be a footnote
I'm a man with a mission
in two or three editions

And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday,
everyday I write the book

Chapter One we didn't really get along
Chapter Two I think I fell in love with you
You said you'd stand by me
in the middle of Chapter Three
But you were up to your old tricks
in Chapters Four, Five and Six

And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book

The way you walk
The way you talk,
and try to kiss me, and laugh
In four or five paragraphs
All your compliments
and your cutting remarks
Are captured here in my quotation marks

And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday,
everyday I write the book

Don't tell me you don't know the difference
Between a lover and a fighter
With my pen and my electric typewriter
Even in a perfect world
where everyone was equal
I'd still own the film rights
and be working on the sequel

And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday,
everyday I write the book


Cheers,
