Testo della canzone Sulky Girl (Elvis Costello), tratta dall'album Extreme Honey: The Very Best Of The Warner Brothers Years

Sulky Girl - Elvis Costello

She wears a wedding ring her sister lent
To throw them off the scent
Just let them guess, it's what they expect
Who in the world has bitten her neck?

She's discovered wearing last night's dress
The carnal and cunning, she couldn't express
Who do you think she's trying to impress?

I think you'd better hold your tongue
Although you've never been that strong
I'm sorry to say that I knew all along
You're no match for that sulky girl

She left her European town before she let the family down
She couldn't stand the Massacre Game
So she dyed her hair and adopted another name
With the evidence of passing out stamped on her hand
She glows in the dark he thinks she's from another planet

I think you'd better hold your tongue
Although you've never been that strong
I'm sorry to say that I knew all along
You're no match for that sulky girl

Sulky girl, I'm sure you look a picture when you cry
Threatening the silent treatment doesn't qualify
It's like money in the bank, your expression is blank
But while the chance appears you'll be nearer to tears
Sulky girl

Sulky girl, I'm sure you look a picture when you cry
Threatening the silent treatment doesn't qualify
It's like money in the bank, your expression is blank
But while the chance appears you'll be nearer to tears
Sulky girl

He said, "Hello, my pretty flower"
Just trying out his tycoon power avoiding the mirror, her pitying stare
She said, "You're mistaken, your money's no good in here"

Just some stupid little know it all
Who thought she looked easy, he's not that astute
He'll pay for the distance between cruelty and beauty

I think you'd better hold your tongue
Although you've never been that strong
I'm sorry to say that I knew all along
You're no match for that sulky girl

So I won't tell you again what do you gain
By blackening her name she's smarter than you
Oh isn't it a shame you're gonna lose that sulky girl

Sulky girl, I saw you practicing your blackmail faces
Suddenly you're talking like a duchess but you're still a waitress
I saw through your pretense but in my defense
There are a few events I think will spare the censor
Sulky girl

Sulky girl, I saw you practicing your blackmail faces
Suddenly you're talking like a duchess but you're still a waitress
I saw through your pretense but in my defense
There are a few events I think will spare the censor
Sulky girl

Sulky girl, I saw you practicing your blackmail faces
Suddenly you're talking like a duchess but you're still a waitress
I saw through your pretense but in my defense
There are a few events I think will spare the censor
Sulky girl

Sulky girl, I saw you practicing your blackmail faces
Suddenly you're talking like a duchess but you're still a waitress
I saw through your pretense but in my defense
There are a few events I think will spare the censor
Sulky girl
