Everyday I write the book Elvis Costello
Fun live HD acoustic cover of Everyday I write the book by Elvis Costello. Find us at http://www.facebook.com/peteintoorbit

On 20th February 2011 we got together after lunch and started to rehearse a bunch of acoustic cover versions. A couple of hours later we recorded the results including this version of Everyday I write the book by Elvis Costello. This is all one take and absolutely live. We hope you like it.

Lyrics :
PROLOGUE
Don't tell me you don't know what love is
When you're old enough to know better
When you find strange hands in your sweater
When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote
I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions

CHORUS
And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book

VERSE 1
Chapter One we didn't really get along
Chapter Two I think I fell in love with you
You said you'd stand by me in the middle of Chapter Three
But you were up to your old tricks in Chapters Four, Five and Six

CHORUS

VERSE 2
The way you walk. The way you talk, and try to kiss me, and laugh
In four or five paragraphs
All your compliments and your cutting remarks
Are captured here in my quotation marks

CHORUS (NB ONLY 4 BARS!!!!!)

CODA

PROLOGUE 2
Don't tell me you don't know the difference. Between a lover and a fighter
With my pen and my electric typewriter
Even in a perfect world where everyone was equal
I'd still own the film rights and be working on the sequel

CHORUS X2

Everyday I write the book Elvis Costello
