There's no charity in you/and that surprises me/I guess I thought you were a golden idol/'cause I called you majesty/on the balustrade/you watched me hunt for tips/I was obliged to pick up from the passing trade
hey kids, look at this/it's the fall of the world's own optimist/I could get back up if you insist/but you'll have to ask politely/'cause these eggshells I've been treading/couldn't spare me a beheading/and I'll know I had it coming/from a caesar who was only slumming/hey kids, look at this/it's the fall of the world's own optimist
well I could have objections/which you would override/but what's the point you're only flogging the horse when/the horseman has up and died/once I testified/swore I'd never leave a stone unturned/I bet you're really glad that I lied
Aimee Mann/Elvis Costello
