COSTELLO, Elvis

I'll Wear It Proudly

I hate these flaming curtains they're not the color of your hair

I hate these strip lights they're not so undoing as your stare

I hate the buttons on your shirt when all I want to do is tear

I hate this bloody big bed of mine when you're not here

Well I finally found someone to turn me upside down

And nail my feet up where my head should be

If they had a King of Fools then I could wear that crown

And you can all die laughing because I'll wear it proudly

Well you seem to be shivering dear and the room is awfully warm

In the white and scarlet billows that subside beyond the storm

You have this expression dear no words could take its place

And I wear it like a badge that you put all over my face

Well I finally found someone to turn me upside down

And nail my feet up where my head should be

If they had a King of Fools then I could wear that crown

And you can all die laughing because I'll wear it proudly

I'll wear it proudly through the dives and the dance halls

If you'll wear it proudly through the snake pits and catcalls

Like a fifteen year old kid wears a vampire kiss

If you don't know what is wrong with me

Then you don't know what you've missed

Were you arms and legs wrapped round more than my memory tonight

When the bell rang out and the air around turned blue from fright

But in shameless moments you made more of me than just a mess

And a handful of eagerness says "What do you suggest?"

Well I finally found someone to turn me upside down

And nail my feet up where my head should be

If they had a King of Fools then I could wear that crown

And you can all die laughing because I'll wear it proudly,

I'll wear proudly, I'll wear it proudly
