Elvis Costello - "Man Called Uncle" lyrics

now those newsprints all over your face
just when I thought I was getting my taste a bite
I go and lose my appetite
well maybe that's why I can read you like a book

look at the man that you'd call uncle
they'd like to sink their teeth in to you
for the pride and the pleasure

and the privilege of having you
if I say you're the one do you think that I'm serious
you get that kind of talk from older men
if I say I love you then I must be delirious
so why are you trying to put my temperature up again

having a heart-attack 'round your ankles
look at the man that you'd call uncle

when you wake up with x-rated eyes
how could I apologize as your check you affects
when you wake up still shaking

and you check your reflection
I'm so affected in the face of your affection
having a heart-attack 'round your ankles
look at the man that you'd call uncle

I could swear I could promise
that I'll always be true to you
I could even say I'm going to do something new to you
but we may not live to be so old
now the girls I see just leave me cold
look at the man that you'd call uncle
