Wor(l)d of Morrissey
  We're back! Welcome to the world of Morrissey's lyrics.

This site and all of the work made to update it are dedicated to my beloved friend MaCa65 who suddenly left this lonely planet
and me without words. Throughout the short stretch of time that we have been given to spend together as close friends, we shared many things,
thoughts and passions. Back in 1983, together we discovered a band called The Smiths and together since then, we followed Morrissey's career
as one of most influential and inspiring singer/artist/poet of our age. Maca65 has been a strong supporter when I first launched WoM,
so this is and will always be entirely for you, my friend. -- David

You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby

If you're wondering why
All of the love that you long for eludes you
And people are rude and cruel to you
I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You just haven't earned it yet, son
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You must suffer and cry for a longer time
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
And I'm telling you now

If you're wondering why
When all I wanted from life was to be Famous
I have tried for so long, it's all gone wrong
I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
(But you wouldn't believe me)
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You just haven't earned it yet, my son
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You must suffer and cry for a longer time
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
And I'm telling you now

I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
Today I am remembering the time
When they pulled me back and held me down
And looked me in the eyes and said:
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You just haven't earned it yet, son
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
You must stay on your own for slightly longer
You just haven't earned it yet, baby
And I'm telling you now

You just haven't earned it yet, baby

As an ominous warning to all sensitive souls frustrated by the lack of success, this title song was allegedly inspired by an offhand comment by Geoff Travis, Rough Trade label manager. Morrissey will use the same verse on "Paint A Vulgar Picture", a song about the British music industry. "Obvously Geoff was staunchly against it," said Morrissey, "because he thought it was a personal letter addressed to him."

Ancora non te lo sei gudagnato, dolcezza

Se ti stai chiedendo per quale motivo
Tutto l'amore che desideri ardentemente ti sfugge
E la gente è scortese e crudele con te
Io ti dirò perché
Io ti dirò perché
Io ti dirò perché
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, figliolo
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Devi soffrire e piangere ancora un po'
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ed io te lo sto spiegando adesso

Se ti stai chiedendo per quale motivo
Quando tutto ciò che volevo dalla vita era diventare famoso
Ed ho provato cos“ a lungo, ma tutto è andato storto
Io ti dirò perché
Io ti dirò perché
Io ti dirò perché
(Ma tu non mi crederesti)
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, figliolo mio
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Devi soffrire e piangere ancora un po'
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ed io te lo sto spiegando adesso

Io ti dirò perché
Io ti dirò perché
Quest'oggi mi è tornata alla mente quella volta
In cui mi presero da parte e mi tennero fermo
E guardandomi negli occhi mi dissero:
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, figliolo
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Devi startene per conto tuo ancora per un po' di tempo
Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza
Ed io te lo sto spiegando adesso

Ancora non te lo sei guadagnato, dolcezza


Come minaccioso avvertimento a tutte le anime sensibili e frustrate per la mancanza di successo, il titolo di questa canzone fu ispirato presumibilmente da un brusco commento attribuito a Geoff Travis, manager dell'etichetta Rough Trade. Morrissey lo userà di nuovo in "Paint A Vulgar Picture", canzone sull'industria musicale britannica. "Chiaramente Geoff era fermamente contrario a questo brano", ebbe a dire Morrissey, "perché credeva che fosse una lettera personale a lui indirizzata."
