Personally, I like it. Nevertheless, it reminds me of an early 90s article in Select, or some such, which sought to expose it as an example of particularly crap writing (‘...could it be, he’s only got one knee’ apparently caused offence). The moment represents my earliest memory of Morrissey’s song writing capacities coming into question, in the music press. I think the article dates from 1992. Anyway, the knives were clearly coming out then—as the lyrics to this song are amongst the best on Kill Uncle.
