Elvis Costello - "Crawling to The U S a" lyrics

I thought I would go to the sea and shrink down very tiny
And slide inside the telephone wire that runs under the briny

Till I found there is a way of crawling to the u.s.a.

You had better not go too far

Theres one way out, theres only one way

Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the u.s.a.

Saw it late one night on a secret channel
Its farther on along the tunnel

Its way beyond the final station

Thats the one they never mention
You had better not go too far
Theres one way out, theres only one way
Leave your mother and your father

Crawling to the u.s.a.
You dont have to pay them that much

You had better bring your lunch

Its undercover, around the houses

Up your skirt and down your trousers

Theres one way out, theres only one way
You had better not go too far

Leave your mother and your father

Crawling to the u.s.a.

She said, "i catch you taking liberties and they do not impress me

Attach me to your credit card and then you can undress me
Everybody is on their knees except the russians and the chinese

You had better not go too far

Theres one way out, theres only one way
Leave your mother and your father

Crawling to the u.s.a.
