During the break in "Speedway" in two 2014 shows, Gilbert O'Sullivan's "I Didn't Know What To Do" was played.

"I Didn't Know What To Do" by Gilbert O'Sullivan on YouTube (user mohawk3881) identified and posted by HangtheDJ16[1]:


Another rare early track from around 1967 / 68 that appeared on the rare Italian album E LE SUE CANZONI in 1974 . This recording is unavailable on any of Gilbert`s current releases.

Gilbert mentions the Morrissey cover when performing the song in concert (2017):


I didn't know what to do
And I didn't know where to go
'Cause when I looked at you
I saw that it was snow on the ground
And not me pretending that I was a bee
Fresh from Antarctica frozen to ice
Mother dear I want some sound advice

'Cause I didn't know what to do
And I didn't know where to go
But someone looked at me
And said politely growing a beard
Can be fun, let me show you how it is done
I said don't bother I'd rather go see
Uncle George and Auntie Marge help me

'Cause I didn't know what to do
When you said, you were ready to go away
And they'll stay
Until such a time permit me to say
Oh I love you

People are staring, they don't understand
Cousin Mary please give me your hand
'Cause I didn't know what to do
And I didn't know where to go
