Shipbuilding

  • Artist – Album: Elvis Costello And The Attractions – Punch The Clock

Some of the best lyrics Elvis Costello ever wrote.  It’s a song about how death in the British Navy during the Falklands War brought prosperity back to a shipyard back home.  Elvis wrote some lyrics, but wasn’t happy with the results, and rewrote them to what you hear below.  Thank goodness for rewrites.
