Testo della canzone Alibi (Elvis Costello), tratta dall'album When I Was Cruel (Edited Version)

Alibi - Elvis Costello

You did it 'cause you wanted
Alibi, alibi
And you took it 'cause you need it
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There's no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi

And you don't need anybody
Alibi, alibi
But you are the only one who knows this
Alibi, alibi

You deserve it 'cause you're special
Alibi, alibi
Maybe Jesus wants you for a sunbeam
Alibi, alibi

But if I've left something out
I apologize
But if you look in my eyes
Then I'm sure you'll see
Alibis, alibis, alibis

Sometimes I'm so forgiving
Everything seems bad to me
But I can't go on living
With this alibi, alibi, alibi, alibi

Insane, what a mundane
Alibi, alibi
And you only wanted to be famous
Alibi, alibi

Sorry, but your mommy doesn't love you
Alibi, alibi
Stop me if you've heard this
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something right
Then don't be surprised
There are soldiers who will kill
But refuse to die

But if I've done something wrong
There's no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi, alibi

You were weak, you couldn't help it
Alibi, alibi
But you never had a pony
Alibi, alibi

But if I've left something out
I apologize
But if you look in my eyes
Then I'm sure you'll see
Alibis, alibis, alibis

And you're such a people person
Alibi, alibi
And I will be true to you forever
Alibi, alibi

But you're stupid and you're lazy
Alibi, alibi
And maybe we can make the future better
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There's no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi, alibi

Sometimes I'm so forgiving
Everything seems bad to me
But I can't go on living
With this alibi, alibi, alibi

You were happy, you were poor
And more honest and that's your
Alibi, alibi
Sister is a whore, brother isn't sure
Alibi, alibi

You don't fit the body that you're trapped in
Alibi, alibi
Papa's got a brand new
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There's no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts

But if I've left something out
I apologize
But if you look in my eyes
Then I'm sure you'll see
Alibis, alibis, alibis, alibis
