Beaten to The Punch Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You say that you'll get him and you run and get your mummy
And you're almost beaten to the punch
Looking for the man who sold you the dummy
And you're almost beaten to the punch

Laughing at the older guys, who say it's just as well?
Saved by the wedding bell, almost beaten to the punch

You're looking for somebody that you can knock about
You were almost beaten to the punch
If you've got a head for figures then you better count me out
You were almost beaten to the punch

You pull the piece but you soon call it love
You go ahead and end up, almost beaten to the punch

Your body speaks so much louder than your voice
You let it do the talking so I don't have any choice

And now you find that younger guys are putting up resistance
And you're almost beaten to the punch
You'd better get out now because you'll never go the distance
And you're almost beaten to the punch

And you'll find a girl and you'll promise her anything
Even a wedding ring, almost beaten to the punch

Almost beaten to the punch, almost beaten to the punch
Almost beaten to the punch, almost beaten to the punch

COSTELLO, ELVIS
