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 keep it updated during the last 25 years 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, passions and some bits of Life. Back in 1983, together we discovered a band called The Smiths and together since then, we followed Morrissey's career
as one of the most influential and inspiring singer/artist/poet of our age. Maca65 has always been a strong supporter since when I first launched WoM,
so this is and will always be entirely for you, my friend. -- David

I Keep Mine Hidden

Hate, Love and War
Force emotions to the fore
But not for me of course, of course
I keep mine hidden

I keep mine hidden
But it's so easy for you
Because you let yours flail
Into public view

Yellow and green, a stumbling block
I'm a twenty-digit combination to unlock
With a past where to be touched
Meant to be mental

I keep mine hidden
The lies are so easy for you
Because you let yours slide
Into public view

Use your loaf!

The last song ever recorded as a proper group, Morrissey must have infuriated Marr by doing a music-hall light-hearted song exactly when Marr wanted to move into different musical territory. Indeed, if a song was responsible for the break-up of The Smiths, this was it.
For those not acquainted, "Use your loaf" means "think about it" and is cockney rhyming slang ("loaf-and-bread" - "head"). "Yellow and green" probably refers to a pair of loons he used to own following some T. Rex-inspired fashion.

yellow and green refers to temazepam which is a drug used to counter depression related insomnia.

Io tengo le mie nascoste

L'odio, l'amore e la guerra
costringono le emozioni a venir fuori
Ma non per me naturalmente, naturalmente
Io tengo le mie nascoste

Tengo le mie nascoste
Invece per te tutto è così facile
Perché tu lasci le tue brillare
Sotto lo sguardo di tutti

Giallo e verde, uno scoglio da superare
Io sono una combinazione di venti cifre da sbloccare
Con un passato in cui essere toccati
significava essere matto

Tengo le mie nascoste
Le bugie sono così facili per te
Perché tu lasci le tue scivolare
Sotto lo sguardo di tutti

Usa il tuo cervello!

L'ultima canzone di sempre ad essere stata registrata come gruppo dagli Smiths. Sembra che Morrissey abbia fatto infuriare Johnny Marr proponendo una canzone spensierata da varietà musicale esattamente quando Marr voleva spostarsi verso un territorio musicale differente. In effetti, se esiste un pezzo responsabile della rottura degli Smiths, questo fu "I Keep Mine Hidden". Per coloro che non ne sono a conoscenza, "Use your loaf" significa "Pensaci bene" ed è viene da un gergo cockney tipicamente londinese ("loaf-and-bread" - "head") in cui una parola viene sostituita con un'altra o un gruppo dio parole che fa rima con essa.
"Yellow and green" probabilmente si riferisce a un paio di pantaloni che Morrissey aveva acquistato seguendo una moda ispirata ai T. Rex.

yellow and green si riferisce al temazepam che è un farmaco usato per contrastare l'insonnia correlata alla depressione.
