  • Am I fine, am I pleasing
    Are you pitying, are you teasing
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    Should a glance from you, just shoot through me
    If a glimpse of you could undo me
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    Time among all of your enemies
    Leaves you nothing but bitter memories
    From the first splash of affection
    To avoiding your own reflection
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    Now the flashbulbs may dazzle
    While you're figuring out this puzzle
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    Don't take more than I offer
    All my love or I'll make you suffer
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    Time among all of your enemies
    Makes disguises from drastic remedies
    From the first splash of detection
    To avoiding your own reflection
    You shouldn't look at me
    You shouldn't look at me that way

    You shouldn't look at me that way Writer/s: Elvis Costello
