Morrissey Lyrics


BORN: May 22, 1959, Manchester, England

Steven Patrick Morrissey was born 1958 in Manchester,
Northern England. In the early 1970's, Morrissey was in a
band called Wild Ram. They later changed the name to Not
Sensibles and then again, to Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds.
At that time they had Eddie Garrity doing vocals and Vini
Reilley on guitar (he later joined Durutti Column). In
1977, Garrity and Reilley left the band and Morrissey took
over the microphone. The band shortened the name to The
Nosebleeds and Pete Crooks (bass), Toby More...

Review about Morrissey songs
So simple... | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Suedehead performed by Morrissey

This is perhaps the most simple, least metaphor-laden song Morrissey has ever written. The meaning is quite clear - we've all been in love with someone who didn't love us back, and despite this would keep coming around, calling, writing, stringing us along, giving us false hopes and making things difficult. And if you haven't experienced this kind of one-sided love...you're young yet, you will someday.

    ------ About the song America Is Not The World performed by Morrissey

He is simply saying America is arrogant, because it hinks it can go around the world looking for ways to feed its belly - plundering the Earth's natural resources if you like. He doesn't like the hamburger, well, he doesn't eat meat! I think he is calling for America to show a bit more compassion. Having said all that, he actually states that he loves America.

    ------ About the song Suedehead performed by Morrissey

I think he's talking to a lover. Morrissey doesn't really nourish her emotionally so he's suprissed she still calls and tries. She does come though and so does he. She also makes things hard for him; by making his 'thing' hard, she makes it even harder for him to to do the right thing, which is stop seeing her if he doesn't truly love her. He's so sorry for not loving her and quite sickened that her love won't penatrate his thick skull (suedehead)

Finally shes seeks out his diary to know the truth. She sees whatever ghastly and beautiful things morrissey would have to write about a failing relationship but really she'd seen them all and more in his eyes many times before. he apologizes. He's a sick man crushed by a cruel world.

It was a good good lay though

The closeted National Front follower... | Reviewer: JH
    ------ About the song The National Front Disco performed by Morrissey

I always found this satire extremely clever, because all the behavioral signifiers are like a young closeted gay man, feeling unnaccepted by his family and friends, who secrets out of the house to go to the clubs. The brilliant conceit is that it is the National Front disco, as if they'd ever have a disco in the first place...

Very, very clever...

    ------ About the song Found Found Found performed by Morrissey

This is the song he wrote about Michael Stipe in the early 90's. But now of course he's been denying for a long time that they ever even had sex!! Yeah right, no ones going to believe THAT!

Morrissey kind of reminds me of Bill Clinton

"I did NOT have sexual relations with that woman...Michael Stipe!"

John: The song is not what is important | Reviewer: Tombcreeper
    ------ About the song Dear God, Please Help Me performed by Morrissey

I typed in the words "Dear God Please Help Me Find An Answer'. He has. The song is sad. In more ways than one. Coming here helped me see how much bigger and grander the Lord is. Bigger than smug atheists and bigger than smug believers. Relax and enjoy his wonder and love. And...don't take music so seriously.

    ------ About the song America Is Not The World performed by Morrissey

I'm American and I love my country. Morrisey tends to write lyrics with tongue firmly in cheek. That said, America is an easy target for criticism. So what? We have problems, a shit load. Hey fellow Americans, fuck you if can't take a joke.

I saw Morrisey (pre-golden years) on the Colbert Report. The dude is freaking weird and a bit of a narcissist, but say what you will, the man can still belt 'em out! I hope he keeps it up, Just as long as he doesn't pull a Pixies and shit on his name by releasing crap. EP-1?! No.

    ------ About the song Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice performed by Morrissey

I don't know if these are the original lyrics or not. However, I think there is a misunderstanding in the final lines. Instead of 'No te pervertes con pappy', which makes no sense in Spanish (is it pretended to be Spanish at all?), I think Morrissey tries to say: 'No te diviertas con papi', which can be a direct translation of 'Do not make fun of daddy'.
If this was the case, the correct expression in Spanish would be: 'No te rías de papi' or 'No te burles de papi', which make perfect sense with the rest of the song.

Dear Jesus | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Dear God, Please Help Me performed by Morrissey

Thank you for this site. That in one of many grieving moments, I type the words DEAR GOD, PLEASE HELP ME, and I was led to here. By reading some of the other post's, it has taken my mind off of myself, my pain. This has allowed to be brought out of the quick moment to see other peoples pain. Now I see that there are so many hurting for so many other reasons that my pain doesn't seem as bad anymore. Thank you Jesus. Amen

America, a Superpower in Decline | Reviewer: Bartmann van Ghent
    ------ About the song America Is Not The World performed by Morrissey

This song is fascinating when seen with the perspective of time. It was written at a time when George Bush, with his steely blue eyes, was President and America was the only world power left standing after the Cold War. America was at the peak of its power: it could wage two overseas wars at once and had no economic rival.

Now almost a decade on, China is an emerging superpower, America has a two term black president and is a superpower in decline. America is similar to an aging athlete: after every injury (recession) the recuperation time is longer and the recovery never complete, yet he grows older with each passing day. The American Dream, the idea that each generation will have it better than the last, is in full retreat.

With the passage of time the Morrissey's song seems almost comical. He could have equally written a song about the Roman Empire with the following lyrics: In Rome, it brought you spaghetti….
