World Peace Is None Of Your Business

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 oh, you poor little fool
Oh 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 governments for

Oh oh, you poor little fool
Oh 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 oh, you poor little fool
Oh 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, Bahrain
Oh, Egypt, Ukraine
So many people in pain

No more you poor little fool
No more you fool

I don't agree with Morrissey on some of this.

Earth Is The Loneliest Planet

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all

Day after day you say “one day, one day”
Day after day you say “one day, one day”
But you’re in the wrong place and you’ve got the wrong face
And humans are not really very humane
And Earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Live with a lowness that no one else knows
Time after time you say “next time, next time”
Time after time you say “next time, next time”
But you fail as a woman and you lose as a man; we do what we can
And Earth is the cruelest place you will never understand

But you're in the wrong skin
But the skin that you're in is safer
Let it begin
And Earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all

Day after day you say “one day, one day”
Day after day you say “one day, one day”
And there's always a reason why you're refused
They always blame "you, you, you"
And there is nothing anyone can do

I really like the melodies of the new songs. The album will no doubt be enjoyable.

However, there's no avoiding the fact that Morrissey has gone from being one of the world's best lyricists to one of the worst. It's amazing how embarrassing a lot of his stuff is nowadays. "Humans are not really very humane"! Jesus, if a 13-year-old produced this you might pat them on the head. "Police will stun you with their stun guns / Or they’ll disable you with tasers / That’s what government's for" would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad. How can the guy have let himself get so stupid?

I'm glad Morrissey can justify his non-domicile tax arrangements in the form of song. Well done Steven.

The Bullfighter Dies

Mad in Madrid
Ill in Seville
Lonely in Barcelona
Then someone tells you and you cheer

Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive

Gaga in Málaga
No mercy in Murcia
Mental in Valencia
Then someone tells you and you cheer

Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive

I'm not sure where he gets his police experiences from but they do a lot more than stun and taser people in my neighborhood. They do protect and serve. :(

Also encouraging people not to vote in the title track is troublesome. Anarchy doesn't solve problems.

I haven't heard the song yet though, sometimes reading it is drastically different from hearing it. The 15 second snippet sounded lovely.

The Bullfighter Dies

Laugh in Madrid
Ill in Seville
Lonely in Barcelona
Then someone tells you and you cheer

Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive

Gaga in Málaga
No mercy in Murcia
… Valencia
Then someone tell you and you cheer

Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
Hooray, hooray
The bullfighter dies
And nobody cries
Nobody cries
Because we all want the bull to survive

Love. This.

Thanks for transcribing all of these lyrics, Viva. I think the missing line in "The Bullfighter Dies" may be "mental in Valencia."

I'm not too terribly impressed with the words, but musically, "The Bullfighter Dies" is a breath of fresh air. I'm really looking forward to hearing the studio version. Love that melodic guitar line.

Is it me or are these lyrics really pedestrian and lack imagination?

They don't lack imagination, there's nuance and nice alliteration. It's unfortunate I'm experiencing them in the cold with a sore neck and strangers snoring on either side of me. :squiffy:

Morrissey is quite evidently anti-Iberian.

fail as a rule, lose as a man

but there's no other skin, no skin that's safer ....so let it begin

and there's always no reason why you refuse, they always blame "you, you, you"
and there is nothing, I didn't want to part with you

I really thought "Earth Is The Loneliest Planet" would have had earth shattering lyrics and an equal melody. Shame. "The Bullfighter Dies" is the winner of the album so far. You never know, he may still have another jangle melody or two somewhere on the album...fingers crossed!
