Best and worst lyric changes in concert

Worst has to be a tie between:

She said, "I know you and you cannot sing."
I said, "Of course I can you silly thing!"


and:

England's a swine
And it owes me a living


He messed with two of my favorite lines there, but hey. They both sounded great actually, but the originals were perfect, IMO.

Best for me would be:

Can you tease me into an empty page of your diary
Psychologically shave me,
I have faith in you.


When he said, "I'm gonna screw you,"
I felt quite happy for you.


And lastly:

I've heard that you'll try anyone twice.

one of my favourites is:

"Someone kindly told me that you collected.... very sharp bread knives"

Don;t really like the lyric changes to 'Please please please.....'

"Get your fat ass back to the ghetto" has become something of a modern classic.

I didn't much like the Republican and Democrat line in "Irish Blood..." Not because of the symbolism, it just didn't fit very well.

Also "I entered nothing/and nobody entered me" seemed a little cheesy. We knew that was the implication anyway, no need to spell it out.

Coiff.

Hideous trait.

I agree, only because an additional two minutes' thought would have provided him a way to carry the change on through Oliver Cromwell... I did a paper on him in 11th grade, but nobody listened while I gave it, and I don't think most American know who the hell he is. Present company excepted, of course.

I was always fond of:

To be Finnish would be a relief

And

Please depressing Belgians

I'll have to ponder on this a bit more...

I don't like the way he's changed Please Please to:

"For once in my life, let me get who I want"

It ruins the unversal sentiment of the song for me.

Actually, "Let me have who I want". I completely agree - it's a distressing change. Some things are sacred!

I can't seem to remember most of my faves... time to break out the bootlegs!

"At some point into "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils", Morrissey jokingly sang "To be Finnish would be a relief" instead of "To be finished would be a relief", but since the joke was probably lost on most, he then sang "To be Swedish would be a relief"."

LOL!:D That's got to be one of my favourite lyric changes. I also love "Of course I can you silly thing!" and the comment he made about "I Can Have Both" and ice cream (can't remember what concert that was...)
