Information

John Porter plays mandolin on this track.
Morrissey stated:

"I think it was very close indeed, and hiding it away on a B-side was sinful. I feel sad about it now although we did include it on Hatful Of Hollow by way of semi-repentance. When we first played it to Rough Trade, they kept asking, "where's the rest of the song?" But to me, it's like a very brief punch in the face. Lengthening the song would, to my mind, have simply been explaining the blindingly obvious."

On being asked if this was a perfect Smiths song.
(Melody Maker, September 26, 1987)

Lyrics

Good times for a change See, the luck I've had Can make a good man Turn bad

So please, please, please Let me, let me, let me Let me get what I want This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time See, the life I've had Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life Let me get what I want Lord knows, it would be the first time Lord knows, it would be the first time
