    Lyrics

    Punctured bicycle
    On a hillside desolate
    Will nature make a man of me yet?
    When in this charming car
    This charming man
    Why pamper life's complexity
    When the leather runs smooth
    On the passenger's seat?
    I would go out tonight
    But I haven't got a stitch to wear
    This man said it's gruesome
    That someone so handsome should care
    Ah ! A jumped-up pantry boy
    Who never knew his place
    He said return the ring
    He knows so much about these things
    He knows so much about these things
    I would go out tonight
    But I haven't got a stitch to wear
    This man said it's gruesome
    That someone so handsome should care
    La, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charming man
    Oh, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charming man
    Ah ! A jumped-up pantry boy
    Who never knew his place
    He said return the ring
    He knows so much about these things
    He knows so much about these things
    He knows so much about these things

    Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now was released as a single before being included on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow.

    Lyrics

    I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
    But heaven knows I'm miserable now
    I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now
    In my life
    Why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?
    Two lovers entwined pass me by
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now
    I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
    And heaven knows I'm miserable now
    In my life
    Oh, why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?
    What she asked of me at the end of the day
    Caligula would have blushed
    Oh, you've been in the house too long she said
    And I naturally fled
    In my life
    Why do I smile
    At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?
    I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
    But heaven knows I'm miserable now
    Oh, you've been in the house too long she said
    And I naturally fled
    In my life
    Oh, why do I give valuable time
    To people who don't care if I live or die?

    Lyrics

    I am the son
    And the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular
    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does
    I am the son
    And the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular
    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does
    There's a club if you'd like to go
    You could meet somebody who really loves you
    So you go and you stand on your own
    And you leave on your own
    And you go home and you cry
    And you want to die
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    Well when exactly do you mean?
    See I've already waited too long
    And all my hope is gone
    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does

    What Difference Does It Make? was released in 1984. The single version is taken from band's self-titled debut album The Smiths. A different version recorded for the John Peel Show on BBC Radio One is featured on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow.

    Lyrics

    All men have secrets and here is mine
    So let it be known
    For we have been through hell and high tide
    I think I can rely on you...
    And yet you start to recoil
    Heavy words are so lightly thrown
    But still I'd leap in front of a flying bullet for you
    So, what difference does it make?
    So, what difference does it make?
    It makes none
    But now you have gone
    And you must be looking very old tonight
    The devil will find work for idle hands to do
    I stole and I lied, and why?
    Because you asked me to!
    But now you make me feel so ashamed
    Because I've only got two hands
    Well, I'm still fond of you, oh-ho-oh
    So, what difference does it make?
    Oh, what difference does it make?
    Oh, it makes none
    But now you have gone
    And your prejudice won't keep you warm tonight
    Oh, the devil will find work for idle hands to do
    I stole, and then I lied
    Just because you asked me to
    But now you know the truth about me
    You won't see me anymore
    Well, I'm still fond of you, oh-ho-oh
    But no more apologies
    No more, no more apologies
    Oh, I'm too tired
    I'm so sick and tired
    And I'm feeling very sick and ill today
    But I'm still fond of you, oh-ho-oh
    Oh, my sacred one...
    Oh...

    Lyrics

    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know, it's serious
    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know, it's really serious
    There were times when I could
    Have murdered her
    But you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her
    No, I don't want to see her
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through
    Do
    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know, it's serious
    My, my, my, my, my, my baby, goodbye
    There were times when I could
    Have strangled her
    But you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her
    Would you please
    Let me see her
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through
    Do you really think
    She'll pull through
    Do
    Let me whisper my last goodbyes
    I know, it's serious

    The Boy with the Thorn in His Side is taken from The Smiths' third album The Queen Is Dead but was released as a single (albeit in a different mix) several months before, reaching no. 23 in the UK Singles Chart in autumn 1985. This was the first single by The Smiths to be accompanied by a promotional video, something the band had previously resisted. The Smiths also performed this song on an episode of the British television programme Top of the Pops.


    Lyrics

    The boy with the thorn in his side
    Behind the hatred there lies
    A murderous desire for love
    How can they look into my eyes
    And still they don't believe me?
    How can they hear me say those words
    Still they don't believe me?
    And if they don't believe me now
    Will they ever believe me?
    And if they don't believe me now
    Will they ever, they ever, believe me?
    Oh
    The boy with the thorn in his side
    Behind the hatred there lies
    A plundering desire for love
    How can they see the Love in our eyes
    And still they don't believe us?
    And after all this time
    They don't want to believe us
    And if they don't believe us now
    Will they ever believe us?
    And when you want to live
    How do you start?
    Where do you go?
    Who do you need to know?
    Oh
    Oh no
    Oh

    Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before was released in 1987 and features on the group's 1987 album Strangeways, Here We Come.

    Lyrics

    Stop me, oh, stop me
    Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
    Stop me, oh, stop me
    Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
    Nothing's changed
    I still love you, oh, I still love you
    Only slightly, only slightly less than I used to, my love
    I was delayed, I was way-laid
    An emergency stop
    I smelt the last ten seconds of life
    I crashed down on the crossbar
    And the pain was enough to make a shy, bald, Buddhist reflect
    And plan a mass murder
    Who said I'd lied to her?
    Oh, who said I'd lied because I never? I never
    Who said I'd lied because I never?
    I was detained, I was restrained
    And broke my spleen and broke my knee
    And then he really laced into me
    Friday night in-out patients
    Who said I'd lied to her?
    Oh, who said I'd lied? Because I never, I never
    Who said I'd lied? Because I never
    And so I drank one
    It became four
    And when I fell on the floor
    I drank more
    Stop me, oh, stop me
    Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
    Stop me, oh, stop me
    Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
    Nothing's changed
    I still love you, oh, I still love you
    Only slightly, only slightly less than I used to, my love

    Lyrics

    Shyness is nice, and
    Shyness can stop you
    From doing all the things in life
    You'd like to
    Shyness is nice, and
    Shyness can stop you
    From doing all the things in life
    You'd like to
    So, if there's something you'd like to try
    If there's something you'd like to try
    Ask me, I won't say no, how could I?
    Coyness is nice, and
    Coyness can stop you
    From saying all the things in
    Life you'd like to
    So, if there's something you'd like to try
    If there's something you'd like to try
    Ask me, I won't say no, how could I?
    Spending warm summer days indoors
    Writing frightening verse
    To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg
    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Because if it's not love
    Then it's the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
    That will bring us together
    Nature is a language, can't you read?
    Nature is a language can't you read?
    So ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Because if it's not love
    Then it's the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
    That will bring us together
    If it's not love
    Then it's the bomb
    Then it's the bomb
    That will bring us together
    So ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Oh, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la

    Lyrics

    Panic on the streets of London
    Panic on the streets of Birmingham
    I wonder to myself
    Could life ever be sane again?
    The leeds side-streets that you slip down
    I wonder to myself
    Hopes may rise on the grasmere
    But honey pie, you're not safe here
    So you run down
    To the safety of the town
    But there's panic on the streets of Carlisle
    Dublin, Dundee, Humberside
    I wonder to myself
    Burn down the disco
    Hang the blessed DJ
    Because the music that they constantly play
    It says nothing to me about my life
    Hang the blessed DJ
    Because the music they constantly play
    On the Leeds side-streets that you slip down
    The provincial towns you jog 'round
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ
    Hang the DJ

    Lyrics

    Is it wrong to want to live on your own?
    No, it's not wrong, but I must know
    How can someone so young
    Sing words so sad?
    Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
    Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
    And don't go home tonight
    Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
    The one that you love and who loves you
    Oh
    Is it wrong not to always be glad
    No, it's not wrong, but I must add
    How can someone so young
    Sing words so sad
    Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
    Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
    And don't go home tonight
    Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
    The one that you love and who loves you
    Take my hand and off we stride
    Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    You're a girl and I'm a boy
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    la, la, la, la, la
    Take my hand and off we stride
    Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    I'm a girl and you're a boy
    La, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la
    Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
    La, la, la, la, la, la
    Throw your homework onto the fire
    Come out and find the one that you love
    Come out and find the one you love

    Lyrics:

    Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
    When I said I'd like to smash every tooth
    In your head

    Oh ... sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking
    When I said by rights you should be
    Bludgeoned in your bed


    And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    As the flames rose to her roman nose
    And her Walkman started to melt
    Oh ...


    Bigmouth, la ... bigmouth, la ...
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race


    Oh, bigmouth, la ... bigmouth, la
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race


    And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    As the flames rose to her roman nose
    And her hearing aid started to melt


    Bigmouth, la ... bigmouth, la ...
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race
    Oh ...


    Bigmouth, oh ... bigmouth, la ...
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race
    Oh ...


    Bigmouth, oh ... bigmouth, la ...
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race
    Oh ...


    Bigmouth, oh ... bigmouth, la ...
    Bigmouth strikes again
    And I've got no right to take my place
    With the Human race
    Oh ...

    The Smiths - Live In England - 7 December 1983

    34:41

    'Live In England' features an anthological presentation of The Smiths in England even before the release of their first studio album, 'The Smiths', 1984. A historical record of the group that emerged in Manchester in 1982 and was considered by critics, unanimously, as the most important alternative rock band of the 80's. For fans, this is an opportunity to relive the beginning of the band's trajectory, at a time when throwing flowers and finishing the show on stage had a special meaning.

    The Smiths - This Charming Man

    The Smiths - This Charming Man (Generation 80) (1983) (HD)

    A rare one for me, I never was a big fan of the Smiths (didn't buy their records or go to see em) but I've always enjoyed this one and since it was among all the Generation 80 (Belgian TV) footage I obtained recently I thought it deserved the old clean up treatment... :-)

    So here is another vintage 80's track from 1983 on the Belgian TV show Generation 80. It's The Smith and This Charming Man which is definitely a sight and sound that could only have come out of the 80's... :-)

    Strange thinking back to the first time I saw them on TV with this song, can always remember sitting there in me Pork Pie hat, braces, Doc Martens and Specials T'Shirt saying to myself Who the feck is this weirdo dressed like that and waving Daffodils about in the air like he's just fell out of the 60 or time travelled on some mad LSD trip but secretly thinking Gawd, that's a great sound and vocals though... :-)

    Cleaned Up, Sharpened Up and ReDubbed with a nice crisp clean audio track (the Only Smiths track I have actually)... enjoy... :-)

    Lyrics

    Learn to love me
    Assemble the ways
    Now, today, tomorrow and always
    My only weakness is a list of crime
    My only weakness is well, never mind, never mind
    Oh, shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    Learn to love me
    And assemble the ways
    Now, today, tomorrow, and always
    My only weakness is a listed crime
    But last night the plans of a future war
    Was all I saw on Channel Four
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    A heartless hand on my shoulder
    A push and it's over
    Alabaster crashes down
    (Six months is a long time)
    Tried living in the real world
    Instead of a shell
    But before I began
    I was bored before I even began
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Take over
