This Is A Test

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Can you recall my taste at all
My little faithless one?
The fractured lie in your alibi
It didn’t help you none

And you swore it was an accident
From the world of trouble you frequent
But you came back wearing that guilty scent

This is a test (this is a test)
And it’s going to cut you down to scale
This is a test (this is a test)
And it looks like you’re the failure
This is a test (you say you want to make it better)
This is a test (but I only want the best)
This is a test, this is a test

We can make this easy on you or we can make it rough
By the way I have to say you didn’t love me enough

And you swore it was an accident
Are you sure that that is what you meant?
When you’re not even competent

This is a test (this is a test)
And it’s going to cut you down to scale
This is a test (this is a test)
And it looks like you’re the failure
This is a test (you say you want to make it better)
This is a test (but I only want the best)
This is a test, this is a test
This is a test
