I'm In The Mood Again

  • Hail to the taxis
    They go where I go
    Farewell the newspapers that know more than I know
    Flung under a street-lamp still burning at dawn
    I'm in the mood again

    I walk the damp streets rather than slumber
    Along the fine windows of shameless and plunder
    But none of their riches could ever compare
    I'm in the mood again

    I don't know what's come over me
    But it's nothing that I'm doing wrong
    You took the breath right out of me
    Now you'll find it in the early hours
    In a lover's song

    I lay my head down on fine linens and satin
    Away from the mad-hatters who live in Manhattan
    The Empire State Building illuminating the sky
    I'm in the mood
    I'm in the mood
    I'm in the mood again Writer/s: ELVIS COSTELLO
