"My Little Blue Window" as written by and Elvis Costello....
This is a calling card
Maybe it will be a farewell note
The poison fountain pen now requires the antidote
And if I avert your gaze
And I should become a shrinking flower
Just punch me on the arm
This could be our finest hour

Till now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going to make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

This is a fingerprint
Maybe you will feel a fond caress
But when you start to speak
Are you tempted to confess?

Well, I was a gloomy soul
Never thought I'd see a brighter day
The dark interior
Blows those silver clouds away

Till now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going to make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

    General CommentI read this one as Elvis thanking his woman (who would it have been at the time this song was written?) for keeping him from getting too dark and cynical.
