Elvis Costello - Cheap Reward chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is how he played it on The Colbert Report, I think, minus the live innuendos 
he adds himself.  He does a simple little fill before the B7 and it sounds like:

e|-------|
B|-------|
G|-------|
D|-------|
A|-0-1-2-|
E|-------|


G                                                 C
Oh, well, I feel so loose tonight I might fall to pieces
  D                                G    D
So be prepared to sweep me out the door
     G                           C      
And I might be horizontal by the time the music ceases
  D                                    G  
So I think I'll get acquainted with the floor

          B7                                        C
Oh, I was trying to get away from the things that I always do
B7                             D
Hello, floorboards once again--how are you?

G                                         C
Lip Service--well, that's all you'll ever get from me
      D                                   G          D
Well, how could you believe I'll take you seriously?
          G                                       C
With your cheap rewards, your blackmail, and your comical rage
     D                                                      G
Just remember you'll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage

G                                         C
All the sign posts on this road that point one way
D                                                  G    D
 Don't act like you're above me, just look at your shoes
G                                  C
I'll turn the light out now 'cause there's nothing more to say
D                                                   G
And it's all been lost before so there's nothing to lose

            B7                              C
Oh, but you could say that you love me very painlessly
B7                                    D
I would've done the same for you, but you said to me:

G                                         C
Lip Service--well, that's all you'll ever get from me
      D                                   G          D
Well, how could you believe I'll take you seriously?
          G                                       C
With your cheap rewards, your blackmail, and your comical rage
     D                                                      G
Just remember you'll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage
        D                                                      G
Oh just remember you'll only be the boss so long as you pay my wage
