I'll Wear It Proudly
Elvis Costello
Transcribed by phillip@phoenix.princeton.edu

I hate these flaming curtains
They're not the color of your hair
I hate these striplights
They're not so undoing as your stare
I hate the buttons on your shirt
When all I want to do is tear
I hate this bloody big bed of mine
When you're not here
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/elvis_costello/ill_wear_it_proudly_crd.html ]
       D                 D/C#           Bm     G
Well I finally found someone to turn me upside down
    D               F#m                  A
And nail my feet up where my head should be
        D             D/C#               Bm        G
If they had a King of Fools then I could wear that crown
And you can all die laughing
    F#m          D
Cos I'll wear it proudly

Organ (2 times)

Well you semm to be shivering dear
And the room is awfully warm
In the white and scarlet billows
That subside beyond the storm
You have this expression dear
No words could take its place
And I wear it like a badge
That you put all over my face

I'll wear it proudly
            G             D
Through the dives and the dancehalls
If you'll wear it proudly
            G             D
Through the snakepits and catcalls
       A            G
Like a fifteen year old kid
        D       Bm
Wears a vampire kiss
If you don't know what is wrong with me
Then you don't know what you've missed

We are arms and legs
Wrapped round more than my memory tonight
When the bell rang out
And the air turned blue from fright
But in shameless moments
You made more of me than just a mess
And a handful of eagerness
Says "What do you suggest?"
