My Lovely Jezebel

My Lovely Jezebel

Elvis Costello

She attracts dark rumors
Travels in blue and other humors
Each time she walks in the room
Brings in much more than you'd assume

Ooo, I looked in her eyes and out through that window I fell
She's my lovely Jezebel
She neglects you and then ransacks you so very well

She suspects your sweet confection
When you talk in contradictions
Then she walks without detection
Overrules all your objections
Ooo, I looked in her eyes and through that window I fell
She's my lovely Jezebel

Man is a miserable ape and sad pile of sticks
He comes out swinging, gets in a few licks
The longest of drum rolls with the shortest of tricks

So she attracts bad intentions
She distracts all my attention
With her ways and her wild inventions
The facts of life they forgot to mention

Ooo, I looked in her eyes and through that window I fell
She's my lovely Jezebel
She neglects you and then she ransacks you so very well
