Elvis Costello – The Element Within Her lyrics

It's the element within her
Something under her skin
That is shining out through the face of the girl
Two sapphires and couple of rows of pearls
It's just a part of it
Like your fine tresses
You know what my guess is
La la la la la la la la la la la
He was a playboy
Could charm the birds right out of the trees
Now he says 'What do I do with these? '
La la la la la la la la la la la

This love in my heart
Let no-one set asunder
Sometimes I wonder
La la la la la la la la la la la

But back in the bedroom
With her electric heater
I say 'are you cold? '
She says 'no, but you are la'
