Smiths, The - Shakespeare's Sister Lyrics




Young bones groan
And the rocks below say :
"Throw your skinny body down, son!"

But I'm going to meet the one I love
So please don't stand in my way
Because I'm going to meet the one I love
No, Mamma, let me go!

Young bones groan
And the rocks below say :
"Throw your white body down!"

But I'm going to meet the one I love
At last! At last! At last!
I'm going to meet the one I love
La-de-da, la-de-da
No, Mamma, let me go!
No...

I thought that if you had
An acoustic guitar
Then it meant that you were
A Protest Singer
Oh, I can smile about it now
But at the time it was terrible
No, Mamma, let me go
No...

  12. Bruno Zadro

    Way ahead of their time, bands of that time were all unique, Joy Division, Cure, The Smiths, Stone Roses...

    Ian Scotto Rosano

    Bruno Zadro Joy Divison ended nearly 6 years before this.

    scherben

    They can't all be unique. You need a dictionary.

    Herbert West

    Oh come on, they were not way ahead of their time... they were just right for their time. If the Smiths had formed today, they'd have failed miserably because no one would have understood them.

    Bradley Clarke

    If they were unique why categorise them now

    guttermonk be.

    Roses? Truly uninspired

  13. wayne pinnock

    In my opinion Johnny Marrs greatest composition. His guitar work always shone greatest when superimposed with piano.(see Oscillate Wildly) Also his piano style is equally idiosyncratic in its syncopatedness to his guitar playing. His latest biography sadly lacks any mention of Johnny Marr the pianist why?

  18. Jake Dean

    What a song

  19. sphher

    who is he dissing in the last verse ?

    Susana Lawrence

    Billy Bragg

    pythonbyte

    is that's true it's harsh. Bragg was a big fan of the smiths and covered many of their songs.

    Matt Maloney

    Morrissey dissed lots of people and didn't give a shit. He even dissed Bowie, and Bowie was a big fan of his.
