First Of The Gang To Die Lyrics - Morrissey

Review The Song (10)



You have never been in love,
Until you've seen the stars,
reflect in the resevoirs

And you have never been in love,
Until you've seen the dawn rise,
behind the home for the blind

We are the pretty petty thieves,
And you're standing on our street..

...where Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die. Oh my.
Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die. Oh my.

You have never been in love,
Until you've seen the sunlight thrown
over smashed human bones

We are the pretty petty thieves,
And you're standing on our street..

...where Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die. Such a silly boy.
Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and a bullet in his gullet
and the first lost lad to go under the sod.


And he stole from the rich and the poor
and the not-very-rich and the very poor
and he stole all hearts away
he stole all hearts away
he stole all hearts away
he stole all hearts away

such a silly boy | Reviewer: Mohd Iqbal | 2/27/12

First time i listen to this song, i think its about playboy. Because ''he stole all hearts away. he stole from the rich and the poor..." but now i know its about Hector. But who Hector? The Playboy? By the way, this is a great song along solo career of morrissey.

Great Song | Reviewer: rico | 12/27/10

This is a great song...my friend Hector was the first of our gang to die - which he said he would do...after coming home from a night out on the town and cranking this song at 3 or 4am. Great song from a great artist!

I agree :D | Reviewer: Clover | 12/26/07

This song is one of Morrissey's greatest songs as a solo artist, along with "Jack The Ripper". I love this song and it's imagery. I can definitely say that nobody can ever be in love if they haven't heard Morrissey's voice. Morrissey stole all hearts away. - Clover P.S This song is from the 2004 album "You Are The Quarry"

Morrysey is a great musician | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/07

What can you say? | Reviewer: sme | 1/28/05

What can you say, First of the Gang to Die is the best thing Moz has done since Suedehead! Its that simple. I work in a music store and its amazing how many non-moz, non-smiths fans that this song has won over! What more can you say about it? Obviously the boy moz can done no wrong, but You are the Quarry is , i think, his most complete solo album! BUY IT!!!!!
