How NOT to write about music – 75. Morrissey

for britain

Punctured ideals
On a website desolate
Will hindsight make a man of him yet?

When in his charmless world
This charmless man

Why pamper life’s complexity
When the lies run smooth
In the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight
But I haven’t got an idea to share
This man said “It’s gruesome
That someone so handsome does not care”

Ah ! A jumped-up singer boy
Who never knew his place
He said “for Britain, is right”
He knows so little about these things
He knows so little about these things

I would go out tonight
But I haven’t got an idea to share
This man said “It’s gruesome
That someone so handsome does not care”

La, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charmless man
Oh, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charmless man
Ah ! A jumped-up singer boy
Who never knew his place
He said “for Britain, is right”
He knows so little about these things
He knows so little about these things
He knows so little about these things
