Elvis Costello - "Tko" lyrics

You can run all you like from the classroom or the cot
But from this day everyday will be boxing day

From a great big man or a tiny tot

Dont need your indecision let there be no doubt
Dont need you permission I can count you out

Tko

They put the numb into number they put the cut into cutie

They put the slum into slumber and the boot into beauty

But from this day everyday will be boxing day
Its a fight to the finish let there be no doubt
As the seconds turn into minutes I can count you out

Tko

You need a back to break or a back to stab

Now your birthday suit looks dull and drab

But from this day everyday will be boxing day

Now you dont look so glamorous
I can count you out
Whenever I feel so amorous

Tko
