The Smiths WORK IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD Lyrics

Last updated: 11/11/2008 10:00:00 AM

Loving you is driving me crazy
People say that you were born lazy
'Cause you say that
Work Is A Four-Letter Word

So change your life
There is so much I know
That you can do
Come and see ...


Wide-awake
And take all of this love
That is waiting for you


If you stay
I'll stay right beside you
And my love
May help to remind you
To forget that
Work Is A Four-Letter Word


I don't need
A house that's a showplace
I just feel
That we're going no place
While you say that
Work Is A Four-Letter Word


So change your life
There is so much I know
You can do
Come and see ...


Wide-awake
And take all of this love
That is waiting for you


If you stay
I'll stay right beside you
And my love
Might help to remind you
To forget that
Work Is A Four-Letter Word
Oh ...


I don't need
A house that's a showplace
I just feel
That we're going no place
While you say that
Work Is A Four-Letter Word


So change your life
There is so much I know
That you can do
Please come and see ...


Wide-awake
And take all of this love
That is waiting for you

Pretty Witty Death Nell - of a Disco Dodger | Reviewer: Peter Anthony | 11/11/2008

This is probably best described as Morrissey's first solo recording and both points to his future and his ( place in the ) past - in retrospect the lumpen lads must curse the day the fey one came flouncing into the studio with the Cilla Black LP up his duke - Marr, one half idiot-savant the other skelly rock'n'roll rent boy, one suspects knew his tea was well and truely "oot!" By the by it's a cracking version of what really amounts to a smart ased one liner and points to the fact that it is the way Morrissey tells them. ( and re-tells them )
