Lyrics transcribed from a live video ({{YTw |VWTibZkqPNU}}), so may not be completely accurate. Currently "Art-hounds" has only been played once - [[London, England 2011-08-07 (Morrissey concert)]]. There are discussions regarding the lines starting "My life is". Some have debated if the lyric is "My life is opera"<ref>All You Need Is Morrissey [http://allyouneedismorrissey.com/topic/4898498/1/ Art Hounds: Lyrics?]</ref>
