"...The moods and the styles too frequently change...from 25 to 29.....from 29 to 59." T.G.L.L.T.
"Girl Least Likely To" is another example of how f***ing awesome he was as a lyricist! Who got credit for the music on that one? Outstanding composition and the guitar at the end is just the best! That is what we are missing. In fact, I am going to play that right now.

But change your entire writing style? How do you go from beautiful poetry to awkward, hamfisted, borderline illiterate prose? It would be like going from "To be or not to be..." to variations of "Roses are red..." I don't know, it just seems like too far a drop-off in quality. And I am a Morrissey fan, I still listen and hope.
Hey Johnnie.....Yup....good point. ...well put ! The difference is noticeable .....

The music writing credit is to Andy Rourke. However the song is a rip-off of 'Only to Other People' by 50s/60s girl group The Cookies.

He's lucky he wasn't sued imho.
I would bet that Morrissey played that song for Andy (I doubt Andy even knew who the Cookies were) and directed him to come up with similar music so that he could sing his lyrics to a song that fit. "I've seen this happen in other people's life and now it's happening in mine," is a similar theme that Moz has used before, so that clearly was a favorite song of Morrissey.
