And now I know how Joan of Arc felt,
when the flames rose to her Roman nose,
and her walkman started to melt
I know this is technically an anachronism, since walkmans didn't exist in the 15th century, but it's still silly. Plus when Morrissey has performed more recent live versions, he says 'i-pod' instead of 'walkman'.

Girlfriend in a coma
Yes, I know it's serious
When Morrissey sings this part, it just sounds like 'yep, girlfriend in a coma. Uhhuh, serious, coma, uhhuh, whatever, can I get lunch now?' it's just so bored and careless, like he doesn't even care.

There's a club, if you like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own,
And you go home
And you cry
And you want to die
Yes, Morrissey, as you do! I suppose it's just the matter of fact way he puts it. And he makes it sound so boring and predictable... as though ending up suicidal on your own at home is just your average night out. I don't know, those lines have just always made me laugh...

I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
Every sensible child will know what this means
I guess I'm not very sensible then?

Some girls are bigger than others.
Some girls mothers are bigger than other girls mothers.
Gotta love simplicity.

Poor old man
He had an "accident" with a three-bar fire
But that's OK
Because he wasn't very happy anyway
Strangled in her very own bed as she read
But that's OK
Because she was old and she would have died anyway
I can't help but be so hooked on Morrissey's morbid, apathetic nature of singing. It's funny how it almost contradicts Johnny Marr's energetic guitar playing in every song but makes for such perfectly odd, loveable songs.
