Morissey and the Smiths rule:

Half a Person
Written by Morrisey

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail
Six long years
On your trail

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail
Six full years of my life on your trail

And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
Do you have a vacancy
For a Back-scrubber?"

She was left behind, and sour
And she wrote to me, equally dour
She said : "In the days when you were
Hopelessly poor
I just liked you more..."

And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
And do you have a vacancy
For a Back-scrubber ?"

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent too long on your trail
Far too long
Chasing your tail
Oh ...

And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
That's the story of my life
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
The story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
The story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story ...

No....you don't HAVE to be gay dearest.
Its much the same response that straight men have have to the music of PET SHOP BOYS....."isn't this gay music"
Both Morrissey and P.S.Bs obviously have a gay sensibility in their work but many times the lyrics are non gender specific....and does it really matter???
If the song is good then its good!

My Dad is a huge Pet Shop Boys fan!
I am not a huge Morrissey, but I do like his darkness and morbidity sometimes...and his lyrics are often sensational.

So Paul...be loud and be proud of your Morrissey adoration...you are not alone!

That song starts out like some letters I got from a stalker about 20 years ago! Maybe he's gotten over me and is now songwriting.

My favorite song now is that one about the guy singing about being attracted to Stacy's mom.
