The Smiths THE HEADMASTER RITUAL Lyrics

Last updated:

Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools

Spineless swines
Cemented minds


Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old suit since 1962


He does the military two-step
Down the nape of my neck


I wanna go home
I don't wanna stay
Give up education
As a bad mistake


Mid-week on the playing fields
Sir thwacks you on the knees


Knees you in the groin
Elbow in the face
Bruises bigger than dinner plates


I wanna go home
I don't wanna stay


Da-da-da ...


Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools


Spineless bastards all ...


Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old jokes since 1902


He does the military two-step
Down the nape of my neck


I wanna go home
I don't want to stay
Give up life
As a bad mistake


Please excuse me from gym
I've got this terrible cold coming on
He grabs and devours
He kicks me in the showers
Kicks me in the showers
And he grabs and devours


I want to go home
I don't want to stay...


Da-da-da ...
