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 23 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

Scandinavia

I was bored in a Fjord
And I cursed the heart and soul of Scandinavia
Let the people burn
Let their children cry and die in blind asylums

But then you came along
And you held out your hand
And I fell in love with you and Scandinavia

I kiss the soil
I hug the soil
I eat the soil
And I praise the God who made you

Stab me in your own time in Scandinavia
Unprotesting I'll die in Scandinavia

Into a crime in Trondheim
I despise each syllable in Scandinavia
Let the people burn
It's their turn
Let their children cry and die in blind asylums

But then you came along
And you held out your hand
And I fell in love with you and Scandinavia

I kiss the soil
I hug the soil
I eat the soil
And I praise the God who made you

Stab me in your own time in Scandinavia
I will happily die in Scandinavia

Track performed live since 2011, later included as extra-track in the Deluxe Edition of the album "World Peace Is None Of Your Business".

Morrissey plays with words and places here (bored/Fjord, crime/Trondheim) like in "The Bullfighter Dies" (Mad/Madrid, Ill/Seville, Gaga/Malaga, etc.).

Scandinavia

Ero annoiato su un fiordo
e ho maledetto l'anima ed il cuore della Scandinavia
Che la gente bruci
Che i loro bambini piangano e muoiano in asili per ciechi

Ma poi sei arrivato tu
ed hai proteso la tua mano
ed io mi sono innamorato di te e della Scandinavia

Bacio il suolo
Abbraccio il suolo
Mangio il suolo
e lodo Dio per avervi creato

Pugnalatemi quando volete in Scandinavia
Senza protestare morirò in Scandinavia

Coinvolto in un crimine a Trondheim
Disprezzo ogni sillaba di "Scandinavia"
Che la gente bruci
Ora tocca a loro
Che i bambini piangano e muoiano in un asilo per ciechi

Ma poi sei arrivato tu
ed hai proteso la mano
e mi sono innamorato di te e della Scandinavia

Bacio il suolo
Abbraccio il suolo
Mangio il suolo
e lodo Dio per avervi creato

Pugnalatemi quando volete in Scandinavia
Sarò felice di morire qui in Scandinavia

Brano eseguito dal vivo sin dal 2011, in concerti ed apparizioni televisive, La canzone registrata in studio è stata poi inclusa come extra-track nell'album "World Peace Is None Of Your Business".

Morrissey in questo testo gioca con le parole e con i luoghi della Scandinavia (bored/Fjord, crime/Trondheim), così come in "The Bullfighter Dies" con la Spagna (Mad/Madrid, Ill/Seville, Gaga/Malaga, etc.).
