Little Savage

Little Savage

Elvis Costello & the Attractions

I would have waited all my life
Just to make love out of something other than spite
But the beauty is the beast you're baiting
Should really be worth the waiting

[Chorus:]
You do something very special to
Mr. Average
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

And so you turn your back on me
And all the hot air that only echoes stale tobacco

Actions speak louder now than words
By just a fraction
What's the use of saying I love you when I'm drinking to distraction?
We save our sanity
By saying such and such
After all, it's been discussed
You say you must be touched

[Chorus]
