Testo della canzone 13 Steps Lead Down di Elvis Costello
When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes
And lies in the meadow with her hands tied behind her back
I won’t refuse if you know how to use it
Just stop playing that ugly drug music

Chorus:
13 steps lead down (x2)
There’s commoners and kings
And everyone’s a prisoner of
Paper and glue
And a decent pair of scissors
So tonight I’m drinking to your health
Because tonight I just can’t stand myself

13 steps lead down (x4)

She stands and fails
On fashion fingernails
Her lovers have her walking ’round
On instruments of torture
And one of them is poisonous
The other is a thief they say
So what one could give to her
The other cannot take away

When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes
And lies in splendor for a picture opportunity
Cover up that bruise, put on patent leather shoes
Just stop playing that bad mood music, baby

-chorus-

13 steps lead down (x4
