Morrissey - World Peace Is None Of Your Business Lyrics




World peace is none of your business
You must not tamper with arrangements
Work hard and sweetly pay your taxes
Never asking what for
Oh, you poor little fool- oh, you fool

World peace is none of your business
Police will stun you with their stun guns
Or they'll disable you with tasers
That's what government's for
Oh, you poor little fool- oh, you fool

World peace is none of your business
So would you kindly keep your nose out
The rich must profit and get richer
And the poor must stay poor
Oh, you poor little fool- oh, you fool

Each time you vote you support the process
Each time you vote you support the process
Each time you vote you support the process
Brazil and Bahrain
Oh, Egypt, Ukraine
So many people in pain
No more, you poor little fool
No more, you fool

Morrissey World Peace Is None Of Your Business Comments
  1. Inika Inika

    WTF with cutting off all the songs? SMH

  2. Jesse Brown

    The title track has to be the most flimsy, vacuous political commentary ever recorded.

  3. Bear Hughes

    This song is a perfect example of The U.S. putting it's nose where it doesn't belong: Somalia, they didn't want our help even drug dead naked soldiers through the streets. Morrissey should run all countries🐻

  4. Mike V.

    I love him so much. This album is the only good one since YATQ. I think it's one of his best - especially the bonus tracks.

    Thank you so much to Morrisey for speaking the TRUTH politically/socially as well. So glad he's not another brain-dead lefty who has zero common sense. Makes me love him a billion times more.

  5. DTOM, ¿eStamos?

    I love the Smiths but honestly the only reason I listen to solo Morrissey is because I so I admire and respect his political stance that he is being persecuted for and I want to support him in any way possible no matter how small.

  6. Æ Kiwi Dan

    I love bastard cops and their tasers. /S

  7. Jo Thomas

    I absolutely love Neal Cassidy Drops Dead.

  8. fred crump

    Todays the 1st time i've heard this album.
    There are some stunning tracks on it, the last track Art-hounds being one of them.

    fred crump

    From a patriot too - i am inspired !

  9. Babba Zee

    absolutely correct as always

  10. idontknowvertigo

    16:08 I will never understand that why there is ezan on that song, just why? I'm turkish and I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE AIM

  11. Patrizia Anzevino

    Love you Moz 😘

  12. Normand Rioux

    A montreal le 27 avril

  13. Nicole Sanchez

    istambul es la que mas me gusta..

  14. Zack Jones

    104 people have a brain....nuff said.😉😉😉

  15. Peter Giordano

    This is the first I am hearing of this album😢

    ciaran wood

    great album imho

  16. Ismael :v

    PERFECCIÓN!

  17. Sect.23

    Only song I dont like by the Moz.... Kiss me A Lot.... kinda glad its not here!

    ciaran wood

    i love that song. reminds me of when i first met my love. couldnt stop kissing. i reckon that's what that song is about. so i love it for that reason. silly happy song about the early days of love. nowadays we kill each other lol

  18. Ilyssa Nagelberg

    still pains my soul that half the world refuses to pick a book and read. If it wasn't for this lovely man I would have never majored in victorian British lit. So depressing how unintelligent this rather cruel world has become. I honestly face palm myself daily because the youth of today does not know who Neal Cassidy or Allen Ginsberg. Oh what sad times we live in that no one reads On The Road anymore.

  19. Alejandra Zuñiga

    Siempre conmigo en mis dias !!

  20. Luis Zamudio

    discaso...aguante mozz

  21. Charmaine Ripton

    World Peace Is None of Your Business is Brilliant!!!

  22. Simon Edgbaston

    At least the people who can't purchase it can hear it 😀

  23. TurboViking

    Free tommy please

  24. Claudio Dean

    Um disco bem estranho

  25. Lisa Rosado

    You think your the soldier giving out order's.- More? I do. Thanx

  26. Lisa Rosado

    Where were notebooks made?

  27. Dominic AaAaa

    lots of young people who have recently got into morrissey with this album seem to say it's his best but i don't think so- i mean it's decent! but stuff like viva hate - vauxhall and i - you are the quarry and even the more recent years of refusal are all stronger imo- some good songs though- the bonus tracks here are actually better than half the main album ones imo!

  28. Este tipo

    I like you because we feel the same about this madness.

  29. Eric Crawford

    Morrissey, justifiably pissed off again.

  30. DrFartBlossom

    Standing at the stone of one of our own.

  31. Yveline Lorenzi

    I'love you daddy

  32. Willy Kare

    Amazing MSG concert tonight...this song was everything!

    Willy Kare

    Trump is heavily implicated ...amazing

  33. M K

    well i am from not istanbul but izmir and izmir will always rule but i liked the istanbul song. it is one of the a lot songs written about istanbul from a non turkish and it is fitting perfect like he spend all his life there!! well that is the biggest dilemma about morrisey.. he sometime annoys you and he is such a big weirdo but he's kinda never wrong about his intentions.

    anyways, salutings from izmir

  34. Patrick Brownson

    This album is fucking great, plain and simple.

  35. Mike V.

    This album has some of the best modern Morrissey songs on it. Especially the bonus material.

  36. Simon Ginks

    Allen Ginsberg was a pedophile

    Wish Mozza hadn't name checked him

  37. felipeadhoc

    Art Hounds is just KILLER!! As a Brazilian, living in a country where the ruling political and financial elite don't give a shit about art and education, I do relate a lot to these lyrics. They are the real Art Hounds, spiting on and censoring real art, while posting quotes from people they have no idea of as tags of boobs and ass photos on Instagram. They don't read a fucking book, yet crowding expositions and art galleries, making it "too cool" (and expensive) for the poor - the real people waiting to have their lives touched by real art, but can only afford to stuff their minds with TV crap. That's what I think this song is about.

  38. Rose English Deluxe

    This sounds like an album my dad would write. I'm not sure if I like this or hate it, yet.

  39. Alfie Solomons

    This is so good

  40. Müstaf Kosmos

    FABIAN, why did you cut the best tracks?

    Müstaf Kosmos

    In fact, why would you cut anything when uploading an album?

  41. Paul Richards

    Thanks.

  42. Maria Mazza

    His worst record. Simply terrible

  43. Richard Paredes Lagos

    Hace falta este album en spotify por la sheeeet

  44. B1G J1MBO

    World peace is none of your business you must not temper with arrangements work hard and sweatly pay your taxes never ask him what for or or or you poor little thing or or or you poor little foul

  45. cardiacade

    Liking his new single, can't wait for the album.

  46. Xcorgi

    The whole thing is just boring , depressing and pretty much puts you to sleep.

  47. Xcorgi

    I love Morrissey but this was just instrumentally the laziest of his work ever.

  48. Seba Marchi

    Sos el 1 Mozz por robo

    raz lupercio

    que robó

  49. Finlay Walker

    Staircase at the university- heavily relatable song at the moment. Please tour again bruv xxx

  50. D Hologram

    "beefaroni" has made it into a Morrissey song!!!

  51. Andri Baday

    what the tittle song at minutes 16.20?

  52. leonakita

    Last song on this album is a killer! 'European -hush museum' !

  53. leonakita

    Wow, Morrissey with a Chocolate Lab....gotta like that! Best dog in the world!

  54. Niko Saraleguy

    The BONUS is even better than the disc!! So great.

  55. Steve Popelier

    thanxs.

  56. Smerington Weeps

    Not one of his best

  57. Kyle Valdes

    why do most moz fans hate this? this is up there as his better records..number one being your arsenal vauhax hall and i.

  58. Madelaine Raye

    I remember seeing Morrissey at Firefly and being completely blown away by the title track... what a dude!

  59. thereturnwoo

    I'm trying to hunt this on vinyl. Did they stop pressing it?

    fostej99

    thereturnwoo yeah they stopped after Morrissey and Harvest fell out, eBay is the best bet :)

    Dante Palmieri

    Did you check Discogs?

  60. Jim Jim

    Pope Benedict II

    Thanks Mozzy and all involved i enjoyed this and the ending too.

  64. guldmilla

    Such an amazing album, a True work of art!

  65. flappjack nudillos

    whats wrong in 31:05

  66. I Do Monologues

    Morrissey's theatrical voice here is what Ringleaders should have had. Would love to see him do those old songs with THIS voice.

  67. I Do Monologues

    Just bought the album version and the production quality is a huge leap from this youtube video. There's so much more punch and visceral-ity to it lol

    lol' You are the Quarry' his best album' for those who know, "this world is full of crashing bores"

    Red Fish

    @Cheryl vasquez Yes, cool lyrics but... quite calumnious. Whats He ever done wrong to need forgiveness?...He was pure and came and washed all sins away so we can have a clean start, and He told us to choose wisely and to follow Him. Be careful what you point out, you mislead others with stupid things like these.Be good,take care and remember one thing: Jesus does not need forgiveness as he was sinless and He will not forget anyone as long as they embrace Him and not all the other gods ( which are all in fact demons). Morrissey might have made the pact with the devil to be famous,like most artists do (if not all?). Jesus will love him again when he will repent and ask for His forgiveness.He probably does repent in a way, as his lyrics are quite revealing,they speak of some truth.He might've made the pact so he can tell this truth,in this case, he took one for the team. Fortunately, Jesus is very merciful and who knows what will happen in the end. Still, Morrissey is much closer to what good music should be like.God bless!

    Hervé Lakotatashunka

    Thank you ! Great job !

  72. Thunder Bolt

    same with me

  73. Thunder Bolt

    Morrissey is my dad's favorite singer

  74. Renato Valeriano

    Para não Morrissey !!

  75. PazzaTV

    "There is extremely heavy censorship now. If you examine, for example, the Sex Pistols rise, it largely succeeded because nobody saw it coming, and the industry didn’t think a band like the Sex Pistols could be popular, or could even exist. Now, it is severely controlled and monitored to make sure that any singer with a political message cannot get through. The result is obvious. We are left with music charts that do not reflect the feelings and needs of devout music lovers. But there cannot be a revolution." - Morrissey

    Mike V.

    Such a true statement.

    Eric Crawford

    Morrissey saw The Pistols when it mattered. What's your point?

    Freddy Rodrigues

    @millfred123 You are full of shit

    Jo Thomas

    I choose to believe there can be a revolution, and that it can happen in bars where music bigwigs aren't invited.

    Mike V.

    @millfred123 no, you are just stupid

  76. TonyStraightEdgeVegan

    Can anybody enlighten me whats going on with the album cover? I understand art is about interpretation but im not much from this-maybe its just me.

    nosnitchin

    Hey! My opinion is that since ''world peace is none of your business'', and ''each time you vote, you support the process'', he chose to show the uselessness of the act of voting by showing a pen ( by wich you leave your preference on the vote ballot) to a dog. Why a dog? The dog represents us, the poor little fools that believe anything will ever change with a vote. Also note the pityful gaze he's giving to the clueless dog/ mankind.
    Meanwhile, the dog is clearly paying attention to the pen only, not who holds it; couldn't Moz impersonify the government in this picture? The Government watches you, while giving you the impression of ''real'' choice, (objectified by the pen), but in reality it's just a phoney trick to hold your attention.
    In my humble opinion this amazing cover picture is a subtle and ironic, yet very sad, allegory of our faked political world.

  77. Karl E

    he is ok,......but should try to work...like normal people

  78. Healing Bean

    I think this album deserves a Broadway musical. Seriously.

  79. Nicole J

    Our human geography/globalization lecturer recently recommended this album in class and I do not regret checking it out. Morrissey sings it with understanding. He always does. I really empathize with this album as it is as relevant to our world as ever. It makes me sad and hopeful at the same time. This album is very therapeutic, in many ways!

  80. treid100182

    No offence to Morrissey, but this album just doesn't do it for me...whatsoever. First, it doesn't flow like a complete album. Second, it doesn't feel (to an unbiased listener) like a complete album. I would rate this, along with most of his stuff that comes after You Are the Quarry (Great Album) as just him throwing things together for the sake of throwing things together....Put simply, it's a 3 out of 5, at best. HIS MASTERPIECE= Your Arsenal.

    dirkbogarde44

    I hear you. It's not a great album. It's ok. Interesting rather than enjoyable.

  81. DoctorMeatDic

    His best album next to Southpaw Grammar. Criminal it is not on sale, if I could afford it....

    Staircase at the University is up with the best of his pop tracks. So many great songs. Oboe Concerto is majestic.

  82. Ray Mercer

    still a classic album and the title track is fabulous 'Brazil and Bahrain, Egypt, Ukraine so many people in pain'. sang like meant.

  83. fack ya

  92. eastlake93

    This is one greatest albums of the 2010's and the media knows little about it. This is why it is important to proactive search out great music. It is not on Itunes, but I will purchase a CD. What is a CD?
