"Cheap Rewards" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Oh, well, I feel so loose tonight I might fall to pieces
So be prepared to sweep me out the door
And I might be horizontal by the time the music ceases
So I think I`ll get acquainted with the floor

Oh, I was trying to get away from the things that I always do
Hello, floorboards once again--how are you?

Lip Service--well, that`s all you`ll ever get from me
Well, how could you believe I`ll take you seriously?
With your cheap rewards, your blackmail, and your comical rage
Just remember you`ll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage

All the sign posts on this road that point one way
Don`t act like you`re above me, just look at your shoes
I`ll turn the light out now `cause there`s nothing more to say
And it`s all been lost before so there`s nothing to lose

Oh, but you could say that you love me very painlessly
I would've done the same for you, oh, but you said to me:

Lip service--well, that`s all you`ll ever get from me
Well, how could you believe I`d take you seriously?
With your cheap rewards, your blackmail, and your comical rage
Just remember you`ll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage

Just remember you`ll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage
