The Smiths

The Smiths were an English alternative rock band, formed in Manchester in 1982. Based on the song writing partnership of vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, the band also included bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s.

All the streets are crammed with things 
Eager to be held 
I know what hands are for 
And I'd like to help myself 
You ask me the time 
But I sense something more 
And I would like to give 
What I think you're asking for 
You handsome devil 
Oh, you handsome devil 

Let me get my hands 
On your mammary glands 
And let me get your head 
On the conjugal bed 
I say, I say, I say 

I crack the whip 
And you skip 
But you deserve it 
You deserve it, deserve it, deserve it 

A boy in the bush 
Is worth two in the hand 
I think I can help you get through your exams 
Oh, you handsome devil 

Oh, let me get my hands 
On your mammary glands 
And let me get your head 
On the conjugal bed 
I say, I say, I say 

I crack the whip 
And you skip 
But you deserve it 
You deserve it, deserve it, deserve it 

And when we're in your scholarly room 
Who will swallow whom? 
When we're in your scholarly room 
Who will swallow whom? 
You handsome devil 

Oh, let me get my hands 
On your mammary glands 
And let me get your head 
On the conjugal bed 
I say, I say, I say 

There's more to life than books, you know 
But not much more 
Oh, there's more to life than books, you know 
But not much more, not much more 
Oh, you handsome devil 
Oh, you handsome devil 
Ow!
