Watching The Detectives Elvis Costello Guitar Chords    

Watching The Detectives
      Nice girls, not one with a defect
      Cellophane shrink wrap, so correct
      Am                      F
      Red dogs under illegal legs
      Am                                      F
      She looks so good that he gets down and begs

      She is watching the detectives
      "Ooh, he's so cute"
      Watching the detectives
      G               C      F      D
      When they shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot
      Am                                           G
      They beat him up until the teardrops start
      F                                         C    G
      But he can't be wounded cos he's got no heart

      Long shot of that jumping sign
      Visible shivers running down my spine
      Cut to baby taking off her clothes
      Close up of the sign that says, "We never close"

      You snatch a tune, you match a cigarette
      She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet
      I don't know how much more of this I can take
      She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake  ... (CH)

      You think you're alone, until you realize you're in it
      Now fear is here to stay, love is here for a visit
      They call it instant justice when it's past the legal limit
      Someone's scrathing at the door, I wonder who is it?
      The detectives come to check if you belong to the parents
      Who are ready to hear the worst about their daughter's disappearance
      Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay
      It only took my little fingers to blow you away

  C                G
      Just like watching the detectives,
      Don't get cute
      Watching the detectives,
      Am                                         G
      I get so angry when the teardrops start
      F                                         C
      But he can't be wounded cos he's got no heart

      G                         C
      Watching the detectives,
      Watching the detectives

      Am F
