Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus on 25 August 1954) is an internationally known English singer-songwriter. Gaining prominence as an early participant in London's pub rock scene in the mid-70s, he burst into fame with his critically acclaimed 1977 debut 'My Aim Is True', still one of the most successful debuts of all time. He soon did much work in the genres of punk rock, power pop, and New Wave after he formed Elvis Costello & The Attractions. In a long and successful career, Costello has released over thirty studio albums on his own and with the Attractions, the Imposters, and other collaborations, praised by many critics for his literate, witty songwriting.

    Lyrics
    Oh, it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl
    And with the way you look, I understand that you were not impressed
    But I heard you let that little friend of mine
    Take off your party dress
    I'm not gonna get too sentimental

    Lyrics
    I've been on tenderhooks, ending in dirty looks
    List'ning to the Muzak, thinking 'bout this 'n' that
    She said, "That's that, I don't want to chitter-chat"

    Lyrics
    She may be the face I can't forget
    The trace of pleasure or regret
    May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
    She may be the song that summer sings
    Maybe the chill that autumn brings

    Lyrics
    Oh, I used to be disgusted
    And now I try to be amused
    But since their wings have got rusted
    You know, the angels want to wear my red shoes
    But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain
