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

Papa Jack

Papa Jack
Wants to turn
Back the clock
And reach out
To the kids
He once had
Who have flown

Papa Jack
In decline
Feels inclined
To reach out
To the kids
He once had
Who have flown

But there was a time
When the kids reached up
And Papa Jack just
Pushed them away

Looking deep
In his heart
Papa Jack
Doesn't like
What he sees
Or the time
On his hands

The dying day
The chilly sun
Papa Jack
All alone
Sings slow
Grieving and low

But there was a time
When the kids reached up
Now you can't always
Have it your way

Papa Jack

It's possible that Morrissey is referring to the Union Jack, as a symbol for a decaying England.

Papa Jack

PapÓ Jack
vuole portare indietro
le lancette dell'orologio
e allungare le braccia
verso i bambini
che un tempo aveva
che sono volati via

PapÓ Jack
in declino
si sente incline
ad allungare le braccia
verso i bambini
che un tempo aveva
che sono volati via

C'Ŕ stato un tempo per˛
in cui i bambini protendevano le braccia in alto
e PapÓ Jack
li allontanava

Guardando nel profondo
del suo cuore
PapÓ Jack
non apprezza
ci˛ che vede
o il tempo
che gli rimane

Il giorno della sua morte
Il sole freddo
PapÓ Jack
tutto solo
canta lentamente
addolorato e depresso

C'Ŕ stato un tempo per˛
in cui i bambini protendevano le braccia in alto
Certo, non puoi sempre
ottenere che le cose vadano a modo tuo

PapÓ Jack

Alcuni affermano che vi sia un riferimento all'Union Jack (la bandiera dell Rwegno Unito) come simbolo per un'Inghilterra decadente.
