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. The group was signed to the independent record label Rough Trade Records, on which they released four studio albums, several compilations, and numerous non-LP singles. Although they had limited commercial success outside the UK while they were still together, and never released a single that charted higher than number 10 in their home country, The Smiths won a significant following, and remain cult an… more »

Call me morbid, call me pale 
I've spent six years on your trail 
Six long years on your trail 

Call me morbid, call me pale 
I've spent six years on your trail 
Six full years of my life on your trail 

And if you have five seconds to spare 
Then I'll tell you the story of my life 
Sixteen, clumsy and shy 
I went to London and I 
I booked myself in at the why W.C.A. 
I said I like it here, can I stay? 
I like it here, can I stay? 
Do you have a vacancy for a back-scrubber?

She was left behind, and sour 
And she wrote to me equally dour 
She said in the days when you were hopelessly poor 
I just liked you more

And if you have five seconds to spare 
Then I'll tell you the story of my life 
Sixteen, clumsy and shy 
I went to London and I 
I booked myself in at the why W.C.A. 
I said I like it here, can I stay? 
I like it here, can I stay? 
And do you have a vacancy for a back-scrubber?

Call me morbid, call me pale 
I've spent too long on your trail 
Far too long chasing your tail, oh

And if you have five seconds to spare 
Then I'll tell you the story of my life 
Sixteen, clumsy and shy 
That's the story of my life 
Sixteen, clumsy and shy 
The story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
The story of my life 

That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life
