Elvis Costello - "Playboy To A Man Mccartney Macmanus" lyrics

You had your own way one too many times and now
Just what it's like, now you're a mess
you're going to find out what it's like
You wanted something you could never possess

You went your own way one too many nights
You treated her like some small oversight

What in the world makes her think that she can
Turn you from a playboy into a man
CHORUS
She's going to make you suffer tonight
And when you're worthy of her then she might
To turn you from a playboy into a man

Turn you from a playboy into a man
You thought you were the answer to her prayers
But that's the trouble 'cos every girl still thinks you're hers
the perfect gift that every girl prefers
So there you are with your gold chains jangling
Your lucky charms and jewellery dangling
But when she saw you she turned and ran
To turn you from a playboy into a man

CHORUS
You couldn't see that the juvenile things you do
Would drag you down and now that the joke's on you

You're pretty cold you end as you start
When your facade isn't falling apart
Well now you know just how it feels for her
So now you're standing in your underwear
playboy into a man
You're halfway there you know that she can turn you from a
CHORUS
