Pump It Up by Elvis Costello

I've been on tenterhooks, ending in dirty looks
List'ning to the Muzak, thinking 'bout this 'n' that
She said, "That's that, I don't wanna chitter-chat"
Turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat

Pump it up, when you don't really need it
Pump it up, until you can feel it

Down in the pleasure centre, hell-bent or heaven-sent
Listen to the propaganda, listen to the latest slander
There's nothing underhand that she wouldn't understand

Pump it up, until you can feel it
Pump it up, when you don't really need it

Instrumental (Hey)

She's been a bad girl, she's like a chemical
Though you try to stop it, she's like a narcotic
You wanna torture her, you wanna talk to her
All the things you bought for her, putting up your temperature

Pump it up, until you can feel it
Pump it up, when you don't really need it

Pump it up, until you can feel it
Pump it up, when you don't really need it

Pump it up, until you can feel it
Pump it up, when you don't really need it

Don't really need it

Don't really need it

Don't really need it
