Morrissey - Lenny's Tune Lyrics




I have lost a friend and I don't know why
But never again will we get together to die
Why after every last shot was there always another
Why after all you've hadn't got
Did you leave your life to your mother

And Honey Harlow gypsy burlesque queen
How did she know that you needed morphine
Why after every last shot was there always another
Why after all you've hadn't got
Did you leave your life to your mother

I have lost a friend and I don't know why
You kid these teardrops glisten
I know it's hard to listen

Mmm I know you work while your friends hang about
And say: "I told you so"
I know it's hard to listen to people
Talk about what they don't know

And Honey Harlow gypsy burlesque queen
How did she know that you needed morphine
And kid these teardrops glisten
While your friends say: "I told you so"
But I know it's hard to listen
To people talk about what they don't know

I have lost a friend and I don't know why
But never again will we get together to die
Why after every last shot was there always another
Why after all you've hadn't got
Did you leave your life to your mother

Morrissey Lenny's Tune Comments
  1. Jem Bo

    MORRISSEY HAS NOTHING TO SAY ANYMORE Shame on you MOZ. He may as well be singing "All hail plankton!"

    Alejandro Gonzalez

    Excuse me sir. Are you impliying if someone does a covers añbum.he has run out of ideas and that's a shame? Because i think you might already know everybody does covers

  2. Louis M

    Morrissey's emotional content is phenomenal. I love this cover.
    I wish he can do a vid where he discusses why he chose these pieces of music for the album.

  3. Rachel Robbins

    Like this but prefer Nicos version

  4. Chas No

    Morrissey = Think + Care

  5. Skeeter NYC

    This is 'Eulogy For Lenny Bruce' written by Tim Harden. Nico recorded it for her first solo album, 'Chelsea Girl' in 1967.

    K J

    I can't decided which version I like better they're both so good

    Gutter Dandy

    @K J Tim Hardin's own version on his live album is also excellent. This is a great cover by Morrissey.

    K J

    @Gutter Dandy I just listened to it for the first time- I couldn't agree more!

  6. Liza Robson

    My favourite part was the Schneider's sausage ad before this video

  7. Marco Aletti

    Bellissima

  8. Nir Perry

    SUBLIME!!!

  9. Lewis Kent

    keep the tap open !

  10. Méchant Manu

    Probably Morrissey’s best performance ever

    Dominic AaAaa

    it's over was a pretty great one too he sounds great on most of these covers 🤯

  11. James Andersom

    Good version,but I like Nicos version much more.

  12. Dead Set

    They leave his band in a box, album after album I'm impressed his machine does all these things. Takes balls to fuck with the Orbison heartache. Moz did better than any living could. He lost me at Rose Garden, but I'd pay a million to hear his take on Field Of Stones. Viva Moz!❤

  13. MrDLOC11

    Arguably his most poignant vocal since Michael's bones ....

  14. HavocBeast

    this song wanted to pet the rabbits

  15. Adair Felizardo

    Linda música!!

  16. antonio sallustio

    chills... very nice

  17. jam

    I love this so much. It's heartrendingly beautiful. I know it's a Tim Hardin song, but it would not have been out of place on a later Smiths album, or tucked away as a b-side or 12-inch track, where much of The Smiths genius hides.

  18. paula benavides

    Increíble, muy emotiva

  19. widM

    not bad

  20. Lucas Zago

    great song

  21. Two Good Dogs

    These covers are better than the originals.Impressive!

  22. Lunna Alv's

    Beautiful !

  23. Angela Riley

    Just beautiful

  24. Fabrice Lafont

    I like so much this one 😍 so great voice, so great sound.... very emotional

  25. VivianaR52

    Thank you Morrissey for this song. This sounds really beautiful in your voice! 💕😍💖

  26. Laurent Magnin

    Toujours aussi bon
    Vive morrisey

  27. Janis Ibarra

    Lo amo.

  28. dean b

    Brilliant cover

  29. taha khan

    I have lost a friend and I don't know why
    But never again will we get together to die
    Why after every last shot was there always another
    Why after all you've hadn't got
    Did you leave your life to your mother
    And Honey Harlow gypsy burlesque queen
    How did she know that you needed morphine
    Why after every last shot was there always another
    Why after all you've hadn't got
    Did you leave your life to your mother
    I have lost a friend and I don't know why
    You kid these teardrops glisten
    I know it's hard to listen
    Mmm I know you work while your friends hang about
    And say: "I told you so"
    I know it's hard to listen to people
    Talk about what they don't know
    And Honey Harlow gypsy burlesque queen
    How did she know that you needed morphine
    And kid these teardrops glisten
    While your friends say: "I told you so"
    But I know it's hard to listen
    To people talk about what they don't know
    I have lost a friend and I don't know why
    But never again will we get together to die
    Why after every last shot was there always another
    Why after all you've hadn't got
    Did you leave your life to your mother
