My Lovely Jezebel

Album: National Ransom (2010)
  • She attracts dark rumors
    Travels in blue and other humors
    Each time she walks in the room
    Brings in much more than you'd assume

    Ooo, I looked in her eyes and out through that window I fell
    She's my lovely Jezebel
    She neglects you and then ransacks you so very well

    She suspects your sweet confection
    When you talk in contradictions
    Then she walks without detection
    Overrules all your objections
    Ooo, I looked in her eyes and through that window I fell
    She's my lovely Jezebel

    Man is a miserable ape and sad pile of sticks
    He comes out swinging, gets in a few licks
    The longest of drum rolls with the shortest of tricks

    So she attracts bad intentions
    She distracts all my attention
    With her ways and her wild inventions
    The facts of life they forgot to mention

    Ooo, I looked in her eyes and through that window I fell
    She's my lovely Jezebel
    She neglects you and then she ransacks you so very well Writer/s: ELVIS COSTELLO, LEON RUSSELL, T-BONE BURNETT
