THE SMITHS

Recommended Posts

Yes this here is one of those well hated apperciation pages. The Smiths are a guilty pleasure., and god damnit their good....

Formed in the spring of 1982 in Manchester, England when guitarist Johnny Marr (John Maher, October 31, 1963) author of reviews for Record Mirror and former guitarist in unsuccessful bands was looking for a lyricist and suggested the idea of forming a band to Morrissey (Steven Patrick Morrissey, May 22, 1959). By September, the duo had settled on the name "The Smiths" as a reaction against all bands who chose complicated names to emphasise their music, and recruited Marr's schoolmate Andy Rourke as their bass player and Mike Joyce as their drummer. The Smiths made their live debut late in 1982 and their live appearances were sporadic.

Cemetry Gates

Lyrics by Stephen Morrissey

Music by Johnny Marr

A dreaded sunny day

So I meet you at the cemetry gates

Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day

So I meet you at the cemetry gates

Keats and Yeats are on your side

While Wilde is on mine

 

So we go inside and we gravely read the stones

All those people, all those lives

Where are they now ?

With loves, and hates

And passions just like mine

They were born

And then they lived

And then they died

It seems so unfair

I want to cry

 

You say : "'Ere thrice the sun done salutation to the dawn"

And you claim these words as your own

But I've read well, and I've heard them said

A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)

If you must write prose/poems

The words you use should be your own

Don't plagiarise or take "on loan"

'Cause there's always someone, somewhere

With a big nose, who knows

And who trips you up and laughs

When you fall

Who'll trip you up and laugh

When you fall

 

You say : "'Ere long done do does did"

Words which could only be your own

And then produce the text

From whence was ripped

(Some dizzy whore, 1804)

 

A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're happy

And I meet you at the cemetry gates

Oh, Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're wanted

And I meet you at the cemetry gates

Keats and Yeats are on your side

But you lose

'Cause weird lover Wilde is on mine

"And if a double-decker bus

Crashes into us

To die by your side

Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten-ton truck

Kills the both of us

To die by your side

Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine"

Sing your life

Any fool can think of words that rhyme

Many others do

Why don't you ?

Do you want to ?

Oh...

Sing your life

Walk right up to the microphone

And name

All the things you love

All the things that you loathe

 

Oh, sing your life

The things that you love

And the things you loathe

Oh, sing your life

Oh, sing your life

 

 

La, la-la, la-la, sing your life

La, la-la, la-la, sing your life

 

 

Others sang your life

But now is a chance to shine

And have the pleasure of

Saying what you mean

Have the pleasure of

Meaning what you sing

Oh, make no mistake my friend

All of this will end

So sing it now (sing your life)

All the things you love (sing your life)

All the things you loathe

Oh, sing your life

The things that you love

And the things you loathe (sing your life)

Oh, sing oh...

Oh, sing oh...

 

 

La, la-la, la-la, sing your life

La, la-la, la-la, sing your life

 

 

Don't leave it all unsaid

Somewhere in the wasteland of your head, oh

Head, oh, head, oh, head, oh

And make no mistake, my friend

Your pointless life will end

But before you go

Can you look at the truth ?

You have a lovely singing voice

A lovely singing voice

And all of those

Who sing on-key

They stole the notion

From you and me

So, sing your life (sing your life)

Sing your life (sing your life)

Oh, sing your oh...

Oh, sing your

Sing your life

Sing your life

Sing your life

Oh, sing your oh...

(Sing your life)

(Sing your life)

Sing your life

(Sing your life)

"Last night I dreamt

that somebody loved me

no hope - but no harm

just another false alarm

Last night I felt

real arms around me

no hope - no harm

just another false alarm

so, tell me how long

before the last one?

and tell me how long

before the right one?

this story is old - I KNOW

but it goes on

this story is old - I KNOW

but it goes on"
