"Little Triggers" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Little triggers that you pull with your tongue
Little triggers, I don't want to be hung up, strung up
When you don't call up

Little sniggers on your lips
Little triggers in your grip
Little triggers, my hand on your hip

Thinkin' all about those censored sequences
Worryin' about the consequences
Waiting until I come to my senses
Better put it all in present tenses

Little triggers that you pull with your tongue
Little triggers, I don't want to be hung up, strung up
When you don't call up

Little sniggers on your lips
Little triggers in your grip
Little triggers, my hand on your hip

Worryin' about the common decency
When it is only a question of frequency
When you say okay but you've got cheek to be
Sayin' you're tired of me when you don't even weaken these
Little triggers that you pull with your tongue
Little triggers, I don't want to be hung up, strung up
When you don't call up

Little sniggers on your lips
Little triggers in your grip
Little triggers, my hand on your hip

    General CommentI think it's about the power of words, but without the sappiness that one would expect of songs with similar messages.

    General CommentI think it's so great that it makes me want to blow up. And certainly about words, or communication, to some extent. I love communication songs. Love love love.

    General CommentI think it's about someone, cheating with another guy's girl. But she just keeps leading the guy on
    ( elvis costello) and does'nt bother calling him back, when he wants to see her.
