Mystery Dance

by Elvis Costello

F G / G C D C G

Romeo was restless, he was ready to kill
F     G
  He jumped out the window 'cause he couldn't sit still
F  G
  Juliet was waiting with a safety net
F  G
He said, "Don't bury me 'cause I'm not dead yet"

Why don't you tell me about the mystery dance
I want to know about the mystery dance
Why don't you show me
             D                                   C
'Cause I've tried and I've tried, and I'm still mystified
I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied

F       G
  Well, I remember when the lights went out
F          G
And I was tryin' to make it look like it was never in doubt
F  G
  She thought that I knew, and I thought that she knew
F   G
So both of us were willing, but we didn't know how to do it


F              G
  Well, I was down under the covers in the middle of the night
F      G
Tryin' to discover my left foot from my right
F  G 
  You can see those pictures in any magazine
F    G
But what's the use of looking when you don't know what they mean?

I can't do it anymore and I'm not satisfied X3
