Testo della canzone Heathen Town di Elvis Costello
They used to call it Sin City
now it’s gone way past that.
Painting the town
and then burning it down
now even that’s old hat.
Now there’s a choir of angels
at the fall of Rome
singing Ave Maria
or Home Sweet Home
Chorus:
It’s just a heathen town
I hear only evil
as my tongue is tightened.
I used to be god-fearing
now I’m so frightened
‘cause the devil will drag you under
by the sharp tailfin
of your checkered cab
And I can’t sit down,
I’m going overboard
in this heathen town.

It starts as a flirtation
and ends up as an expensive habit.
With one eye on her place
in debtor’s prison
And the other on a girl
dressed as a rabbit.
Now you can live forever
endure fits and starts
The only stake you cannot raise
Is the one driven through your heart.

Chorus
