Elvis Costello - "Mystery Dance Demo" lyrics

Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill.
'N' to Juliet was waiting with a safety net.
He jumped out the window 'cause he couldn't sit still.
He said "Don't bury me 'cause I'm not dead yet".

Why don't you tell me about the mystery dance 'n'
I wanna know about the mystery dance 'n'
Chorus:
'Cause I've tried and I've tried and I'm still mystified.
Why don't you show me,

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied.
Well I remember when the lights went out
She thought that I knew, and I thought that she knew,
And I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt.
-chorus-
So both of us were willing, but we didn't know how to do it.

Now I was standing under the covers in the middle of the night,

Tryin' to discover my left foot from my right.
But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean.

-chorus-
You can see those pictures in any magazine.
I'm gonna have this very personal conversation with God
I'm gonna walk right up to heaven dodgin' lightning and rods
I'll say "You got the information why don't you say so"
He'll say "Well I been around and I still don't know"

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied. (repeat x2-chorus-
