Elvis Costello - "So Like Candy Mccartney Macmanus" lyrics

Here lies the powder and perfume
The pretty clothes are scattered 'round the room
And it's so like Candy
Here lies the lipstick and the face

The coloured tablets keep it all in place
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

CHORUS
Why must she be the one
What did I do to make her go
That I have to love
So like Candy
Here lies a picture of a girl

Her arms are tight around that lucky guy
And it's so like Candy
And in her eyes a certain look
So like Candy
I thought I'd seen the last of long ago

And it's so like Candy
CHORUS

I remember the day that picture was taken
But that's so like Candy
We were so happy then
She seemed so sweet to me I was mistaken
Oh no not that again
She just can't face the day
But that's so like Candy

So she turns and melts away
And on the sleeve I find a note attached
Here lie the records that she scratched
And it's so like Candy
"My Darling Dear it's such a waste"
She couldn't say "goodbye", but "I admire your taste"
So like CandyAnd it's so like Candy
