Cringeworthy Morrissey lyrics


"I see the world, it makes me puke"

The fact that the next line is "but then I look at you..." is the most disturbing for me. Bad flashbacks of discovering people hoarking in the potties in college. :sick:


off the rails
"And don't you wonder, why in Estonia they say, Hey you, you big fat pig, you fat pig, you fat pig" pisses me off to no end. its just so... boring.


Bluff, Ardour & Assoc.
"I've had my face dragged through 15 miles of shit,
And I do not, and I do not, and I do not like it."

Why 15? Isn't one mile bad enough?

I think this is a good occasion for me to ask: what is it with the hate for "explosive kegs" and the other sexual references in "Dear God"? I've always thought Morrissey's explicit sexuality in that song to be quite beautiful and tender.

For me... it's because the music is so beautiful then he starts talking about his explosive kegs between his legs..It doesn't fit. After a million and one listens I'm used to it now, but when ROT first came out I did cringe.

"There must be somebody else who can take your gaze a ways"

Totally ruins an otherwise good song! Why couldn't he just say gaze away?

The timeless, immortal:

"and the smiling children tell you that you smell."

My least favorite Morrissey lyric of all time. I can't wait to hear it live. :squiffy:

" not literally, but metaphorically."

Although this phrase has grown on me.

I find myself singing that sometimes, when it's appropriate.
america - it brought you the hambuger, you know where you can shove your hamburger.

i try to skip that part of the song every time but i sneeks up bastardly.
