about

Costume Records

lyrics

He is a tuxedo, as classical as neat / He is a
fox, as physical as meat / And I’ve never met
a man who knew better than him / How to
wear a moustache with a modern swing

There’s a mystery hiding in his tongue / Which
he used to make old maids feel so young /
He’s to blame for the fame of tobacco sticks
/ He made younger generations look for that
kick

He’ll take your pride and clean it up with mud
/ He won’t give you a dime but he might give
you a job

He’s got the Bossa Nova’s Elenco tone / His
skin has a milk chocolate of its own / He
can beat the clock; beat the rock, the lock
all alone / Ain’t got no subordinate, doesn’t
wait on ringtones

He can’t stand mumbo jumbo he is a
musicologist / He is snazzy but strict and he
never uses his fist / The throb of his heart
goes like boom boom pow / He used to play
the drums now he won’t remember how

His outlook on life is as heavy as light / His
thoughts come “mod cons”, everything is
black or white / He likes to share it all, sippin’
some wine / And if you listen carefully, some
grey you’ll find
