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

What's The World...?

What would you sell? Loose glasses and suit
Heart and soul Won't wear out
That's not enough! I wonder what's inside
Fish fillet knife
Can cut right through my eye...

I'm looking for some words To call my own
Worn-out phrases And a hand-me-down
They'll knock me Under where I stand
Sad on his back In a corned beef pan
Going under
You can feel them pulling me down
To the rust inside...

This is the way...
Franken-star is born

Bits and pieces Others have worn
All held together by a management glue
Too much glue Watch the stars turn blue
Turn blue Turn blue Turn blue Turn blue
I'm going under
You can feel them pulling me down
To the halls of rust

This a cover of a song by mutual admirers Manchester band James. This was recorded live in Glasgow in September 1985 and formed a B-side to the cassette maxi-single of I Started Something I Couldn't Finish in the UK.

Cosa accidenti...?

Cosa venderesti? Occhiali sfusi e completi da uomo
Cuore ed anima non si consumeranno
Ma non basta! Mi chiedo cosa c'è dentro
Il coltello da filetto di pesce
può tagliare proprio attraverso i miei occhi...

Sto cercando delle parole che possa dire mie
Frasi consunte ed un abito smesso
Mi stenderanno sotto a dove mi trovo
triste sulla schiena in una padella di carne secca
vado giù
Li senti mentre mi tirano giù
verso il deterioramento interno...

E' così che è nato Franken-star...

Pezzi e particelle che altri hanno indossato
tutti tenuti assieme da una colla di manager
troppa colla, guarda le stelle diventare blu
diventare blu, diventare blu
Sto andando giù
Li vedi mentre mi tirano giù
nelle stanze del deterioramento...
