5ive gears in reverse, girls looking for the big lift
Somebody send out for the night nurse
Please don't stick me on the late shift

If you don't know by now
Nobody's going to tell you
If you don't know by now
The shock will probably kill you

And if your patience is exhausted and you still cannot decide
You're sitting in a garage contemplating suicide
And you have no motivation you can't even catch your breath
All the business and celebrations is driving you to debt

5ive gears in reverse, you think I don't know what I'm doing
And at a fashionable first, like walking down the road to ruin
But if you're safe and sound, don't let me interrupt you
And if you don't go down, how could I corrupt you

And if your patience is exhausted and you still cannot decide
You're sitting in a garage contemplating suicide
And you have no motivation you can't even catch your breath
All the business and celebrations is driving you to debt

Songwriters
COSTELLO, ELVIS
