As Morrissey is such a great writer I wondered what everyone's fav lyric was, mine is from The Queen Is Dead and makes me smile every time I hear it

She said, "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
I said, "That's nothing, you should hear me play piano"

It's so easy to laugh, It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind.

I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

Hop up out the bed, turn my swag on
Pay no attention to them haters
Because we whip 'em off
And we ainít doin' nothin' wrong
So donít tell me nothin'
Iím just trying to have fun
So keep the party jumping
So what's up? (yeah)
And now they don't know what to do
We turn our back and whip our hair and just
Shake em off, shake em off
Shake em off, shake em off

Donít let haters get me off my grind
Keep my head up, I know Iíll be fine
Keep fighting until I get there
When Iím down and I feel like giving up

[Chorus:]
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

Imma get more shine in a little bit
Soon as I hit the stage applause
Iím hearing it
Whether is black stars, black cars
Iím feelin it
But can't none of them whip it like I do (I)
I get to the mm-yeah go hard
When they see me pull up
I whip it real hard
I whip it real hard
Real hard
I whip it real hard

Donít let haters get me off my grind
Keep my head up, I know Iíll be fine
Keep fighting until I get there
When Iím down and I feel like giving up

[Chorus:]
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

All my ladies if you feel it
Gone and do it, do it
Whip your hair (whip your hair)
Donít matter if itís long, short
Do it, do it whip your hair!

All my ladies if you feel it
Gone and do it, do it
Whip your hair (whip your hair)
Donít matter if itís long, short
Do it, do it whip your hair, your hair, your hair!

[Chorus:]
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth

"It's a club if you'd like to go,
You could meet somebody who really loves you",
So you go and you stand on your own,
And you leave on your own,
And you go home,
And you cry, and you want to die.



Followed by the best guitar riff that Johnny Marr ever committed to vinyl.

I'm not a Smith's fan, but How Soon is Now? is one of my favourite songs and I was going to post the same lyric ^

also:

"I am the son, and the heir, of a shyness that is criminally vulgar,
I am the son and the heir, of nothing in particular"

it's such a memorable lyric.

And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life
And I think about death
And neither one particularly appeals to me

"So I checked all the registered historical facts
And was shocked into shame to discover
That I'm the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other."

Wonderful, wonderful band. Often have (usually friendly) arguments with my non-believer "Oh they're so depressing" friends and this is one of my favourite lyrics to quote. Morrissey could be very funny before he started, imho, taking himself a little *too* seriously.

Got his autobiography at the airport a few weeks ago, but made the mistake of letting my wife read it first. At the speed she reads, it could be 2015 before I get my book back.....

"Havenít had a dream in a long time
See, the life Iíve had
Can make a good man bad
So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time "

"Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go"

ďIn my life, why do I smile at people who Iíd much rather kick in the eye?
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour,
but Heaven knows Iím miserable now"

Oh, so many!


And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

- There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

England is mine, it owes me a living,
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye.

''Nature Is A Lanaguage Can't You Read''

I have always loved that line so simple yet so true

''So Shut Your Mouth How Can You Say I Go About Things The Wrong Way''

Again simple to the point and perfect in it's delivery How Soon Is Now is epeic as far as songs go.

What she said:
"How come someone hasn't noticed
that I'm dead
and decided to bury me
God knows, I'm ready"

"I smoke 'cos I'm hoping for an
early death
AND I NEED TO CLING TO SOMETHING !"


always good for a laugh.

As the flames rose-to her roman nose
And her walkman started to melt

Bigmouth! La-da-da-dah!

for the sheer humour


I AM HUMAN
AND I NEED TO BE LOVED
JUST LIKE
EVERYBODY ELSE DOES

for the soul...

And of course "There is a light", which I cried myself asleep to on a couple of occasions...

Oh, just remebered another one that always makes me chuckle...

As Rose collects the money in the canister
Who comes sliding down the banister?
The vicar in a tutu
Hes not strange
He just wants to live his life this way.

and...

Spending warm summer days indoors
Writing frightening verse
To a buck-toothed girl from luxemburg

Where to start? There's so many...

And in a darkened underpass, I thought,
'Oh God, my chance has come at last'
But then a strange fear gripped me
and I just couldn't ask

Tried living in the real world instead of a shell,
But before I began,
I was bored before I even began

Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear!

I got confused, I killed a nun, I can't help the way I feel!

Me too. And the follow up...

"And on cold leather seats well it suddenly struck me
I just might die with a smile on my face after all"
