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

Fantastic Bird

So then you've found your place
You say: "I wanna be the first
Stand-up comedian in outer space"

But then in a fantastic bird1
Fantastic bird

Space is gonna thrill you
Space could even kill you
But space will never love you like I do

Reflecting light down to earth
Oh yes then some humour too
Just enough to make us know we don't miss you

Have you checked suspension in the fantastic bird?
Fantastic bird

Science can engulf you
Science then propels you
But science will never love you like I do

What brings you down to earth
Ah yes of course
Yes, yes, it was a lack of applause

Scrap metal for a fantastic bird
Fantastic bird

Science propels you
Science still engulfs you
But science will never love you like I do

'Cause when you land
All I do hear is my voice:
"Welcome, I love you, don't you see?"

This is an unreleased song recorded after the sessions for "Your Arsenal" album, maybe it was a part of the b-sides recording session for the single "Certain People I Know".

The song is supposed to be about Michael Legge, a comedian who released on the web some rarity songs such as "Born To Hang", "Piccadilly Palare (1st version)". But the more credited opinion is that the song was written about Andrew Paresi (aka Andrew MacGibbon) who left the Morrissey band as a drummer to become a full-time comedian.

1 bird in British English is also slang for "type" or "girl"

Razzo fantastico

Così hai trovato il tuo posto
E dici: "Voglio essere il primo
cabarettista nello spazio"

Ma poi in un razzo fantastico
Razzo fantastico

Lo spazio ti farà entusiasmare
Lo spazio potrebbe persino ucciderti
Ma non ti amerà mai come me

Sarai lì a riflettere luce verso la Terra
Oh certo, anche un po' di umorismo
Abbastanza per renderci conto che non ci manchi

Hai provato la sospensione nel razzo fantastico?
Razzo fantastico

La scienza può inghiottirti
La scienza poi ti spara lontano
Ma non ti amerà mai quanto me

Cosa ti porta di nuovo qui sulla Terra?
Ah sì, certo...
Sì, certo, la mancanza di applausi

Ferraglia per un razzo fantastico
Razzo fantastico

La scienza ti spara via lontano
La scienza ti inghiotte ancora
Ma non ti amerà mai quanto me

E quando atterri
Si sente solo la mia voce:
"Benvenuto, io ti amo, non capisci?"

Una canzone mai pubblicata, registrata dopo le session per l'album "Your Arsenal", forse progettata per essere una b-side del singolo "Certain People I Know".

Alcuni suggeriscono che il testo riguardi Michael Legge, un attore che pubblicò sul web alcune canzoni di Morrissey rimaste nell'anonimato ("Born To Hang", la prima versione di "Piccadilly Palare" e altre), ma l'opinione più accreditata è che la canzone sia stata scritta per Andrew Paresi (conosciuto anche come Andrew MacGibbon) che lasciò la band di Morrissey da batterista per diventare un attore comico.

1 bird in Inglese (UK) significa anche "ragazza" oltre che "tipo, persona particolare".
