Elvis Costello - My Little Blue Window Lyrics




This is a calling card
Maybe it will be a farewell note
The poison fountain pen now requires the antidote
But if I avert your gaze
And I should become a shrinking flower
Just punch me on the arm
This could be our finest hour

'Til now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going got make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be...

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
'Til I can see right though
My little blue window

This is a fingerprint
Maybe you will feel a fond caress
But when you start to speak
Are you tempted to confess?

Well, I was a gloomy soul
Never thought I see a brighter day
The dark interior
Blows those silver clouds away

'Til now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going got make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be...

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
'Til I can see right though
My little blue window

Elvis Costello My Little Blue Window Comments
  1. Dr. killpatient

    Unforgivingly Over-looked Costello gem. I loved it from first listen & I still love it.

  2. matthew stetson

    Big picture is that I recognize the greatness of this song and I'm not one to much look at views, likes and dislikes. It does however still astonish me that this wonderful song is so unknown and underappreciated. 'My lovely hooligan...' I love his voice. Spit, spit, spittle.

  3. martin little

    elvis is the best

  4. Jarred Stagen

    i love his little play on words. smash my pain/pane. such a genius in all the right ways.

    Matthew Stetson

    And 'my lovely hooligan' comes before 'smash my pain'. This song absolutely slays me. Love the fade out on the chorus. Splendid.

  5. Circumpunk

    @Rikkyhardo yo, Rikky Bro... you know Beadbop, right? Yeah... well she said that she thinks E Costello has more talent than E Presly. Sooooo.... yeah, haha

    Dr. killpatient

    He does have more talent than Presley. Let's see Elvis Presley write, "Imperial bedroom ", "King of America, " or "This years model." Presley was technically a better singer, but that's about it.

  9. Circumpunk

    @orbifoldish I completely agree.

  10. orbifoldish

    Very nice..... Elvis C might have his faults but you hear his intelligence in his music. He is real.

  11. Circumpunk

    @suedehead3 Thanks for listening.

  12. Rikkyhardo

    Blimey ... you're gonna think I'm on a right downer tonight. Don't like Elvis Costello and never have. Don't tell Pam, she might unfriend me. I think he sounds out of tune to be honest

    Dr. killpatient

    Rikkyhardo Costello is a post-punk act he's supposed to sound out of tune.
