Yvette At my old workplace there was one smiths song in regular rotation but I could never figure out what it was because I was in the kitchen and none of the other staff members knew what it was called or could make out any of the lyrics. But listening to this I've now discovered it's William, It Was Really Nothing. The version here is better, and I'm not just saying that because I've only listened to the original while washing pots surrounded by self aggrandising racist chefs.

Nowhere Fast 02:49
i'd like to drop my trousers to the world i am a man of means, of slender means each household appliance is like a new science in my town and if the day came when i felt a natural emotion i'd get such a shock i'd probably jump in the ocean and when a train goes by it's such a sad sound i'd like to drop my trousers to the queen every sensible child will know what this means the poor and the needy are selfish and greedy on her terms and if the day came when i felt a natural emotion i'd get such a shock i'd probably jump in the ocean and when a train goes by it's such a sad sound this is the bridge the bridge is now complete and when i'm lying in my bed i think about life and i think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me and if the day came when I felt a natural emotion i'd get such a shock i'd probably lie in the middle of the street and die i'd lie down and die

i was happy in the haze of a drunken hour but heaven knows i'm miserable now i was looking for a job, and then I found a job and heaven knows i'm miserable now in my life why do i give valuable time to people who don't care if i live or die two lovers entwined pass me by and heaven knows i'm miserable now I was looking for a job, and then I found a job and heaven knows i'm miserable now in my life why do i give valuable time to people who don't care if i live or die what she asked of me at the end of the day caligula would have blushed "you've been in the house too long" she said and i naturally fled in my life why do i smile at people who i'd much rather kick in the eye i was happy in the haze of a drunken hour but heaven knows i'm miserable now "you've been in the house too long" she said and I naturally fled in my life why do i give valuable time to people who don't care if i live or die

Girl Afraid 03:28

park the car at the side of the road you should know time's tide will smother you and i will too when you laugh about people who feel so very lonely their only desire is to die well I'm afraid it doesn't make me smile i wish i could laugh but that joke isn't funny anymore it's too close to home and it's too near the bone it's too close to home and it's too near the bone more than you'll ever know kick them when they fall down kick them when they fall down (etc.) it was dark as i drove the point home and on cold leather seats well, it suddenly struck me i just might die with a smile on my face after all i've seen this happen in other people's lives and now it's happening in mine (repeated like, a bunch)

about

NEO13

The Smynths are back - with a vengeance!

The preeminent Smiths cover band dedicated to destroying Morrissey once and for all has come bearing 6 new songs, finely crafted to maximize his psychological damage and your listening pleasure.

Morrissey once said there's "nothing more repellent than the synthesizer", and since he's a fascist you'd think he'd know a thing or two about being repellent!
