Such Unlikely Lovers

This song is by Elvis Costello With Burt Bacharach and appears on the album Painted From Memory: The New Songs Of Bacharach & Costello (1998).


On a hot city day
When your white shirt turns to grey
That's when she'll arrive

When you look how you feel
Someone steps upon your heel
That's when she will come
Listen now

I'm not saying that there will be violins
But don't be surprised if they appear
Playing in some doorway
Still I can't believe that this is happening

We're such unlikely lovers
Though no one seems to notice as they hurry by
Ask me what I'm thinking and I won't deny it

(Can you believe it's happening?)
(Can you believe it's happening?)


There were no magic spells
You can keep the flowers and bells
They just don't seem right

Can it actually be?
Me and you and you and me
Though we're like day and night
Listen now

I'm not saying that there will be violins
But don't be surprised if they appear
Playing in some doorway
Still I can't believe that this is happening

We're such unlikely lovers
Though no one seems to notice as they hurry by
Ask me what I'm feeling and I won't deny it

(Can you believe it's happening?)
I am bewildered
(Can you believe it's happening?)
Somebody help me
(Can you believe it's happening?)
