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

Lucky Lisp

When your gift unfurls
When your Talent becomes apparent
I will roar from the stalls
I will gurgle from the circle
The Saints smile shyly
Down on you
Oh, they couldn't get over
Your nine-leaf clover

Oh, lucky lisp was not wasted on you
Lucky lisp wasn't wasted on you

When your name's with the best
Will my name be on your guest list ?
And I will roar from the stalls
Ooh, the balcony fool was me, you fool
Jesus made this all for you, love (you, love)
He couldn't get over
Your Grandma's omen
Oh, lucky lisp was not wasted on you
Lucky lisp wasn't wasted on you

The title coming from a pun on Cliff Richard's song "Lucky Lips", this is another candidate for a song about Marr, as a short tale of one lookingly from the background at someone whose success is just beginning.

Balbettìo fortunato

Quando le tue doti si riveleranno
Quando il tuo Talento diverrà apparente
Io scoppierò a ridere dalle prime file della platea
Borbotterò dalla galleria
I Saints sorridono tristemente
Di te
Non hanno potuto avere la meglio
Sul tuo fiore a nove foglie

"Balbettio fortunato" non era sprecato su di te
"Balbettio fortunato" non era sprecato su di te

Quando il tuo nome sarà fra i più famosi
Il mio sarà ancora sul tuo elenco degli ospiti?
Scoppierò a ridere dalle prime file
Oh il folle della balconata ero io, pazzo!
Dio ha creato tutto questo per te, tesoro
Lui non ha potuto avere la meglio
Sul presagio di tua Nonna

"Balbettio fortunato" non era sprecato su di te
"Balbettio fortunato" non era sprecato su di te

Il titolo è tratto da un gioco di parole di una canzone di Cliff Richard "Lucky Lips" (Labbra fortunate). Altro possibile testo su Johnny Marr, inteso come piccola storia su una persona di secondo piano diviene qualcuno il cui successo è solo agli inizi.
