"Put Away Forbidden Playthings, song for voice & viol consort [Live]" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Put away forbidden playthings
Amusements and distractions
And dismantle the contraption and carry it away

In time as beauty dissolves into glamor
It slips from your heart and falls under the hammer
Put away forbidden playthings

Put away forbidden playthings
And never return to pluck out that jewel
Or find the thrill that lingers still
While suffering the dream of disobeying

Put away forbidden playthings
Put away forbidden playthings
Put away forbidden playthings
