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 »

I was minding my business 
Lifting some lead off 
The roof of the Holy Name church 
It was worthwhile living a laughable life 
To set my eyes on the blistering sight 
Of a Vicar in a tutu 
He's not strange 
He just wants to live his life this way 

A scanty bit of a thing 
With a decorative ring 
That wouldn't cover the head of a goose 
As Rose collects the money in a canister 
Who comes sliding down the bannister ? 
The Vicar in a tutu 
He's not strange 
He just wants to live his life this way 

The monkish monsignor 
With a head full of plaster 
Said : "My man, get your vile soul dry-cleaned"
As Rose counts the money in the canister 
As natural as rain 
He dances again 
My God! 
The Vicar in a tutu 
Oh yeah 
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 
Oh... 
The Vicar in a tutu 
Oh yeah 
Oh... 

The next day in the pulpit 
With freedom and ease 
Combatting ignorance, dust, and disease
As Rose counts the money in the canister 
As natural as rain 
He dances again and again and again 

In the fabric of a tutu 
Any man could get used to 
And I am the living sign 
And I'm a living sign 
I am a living sign 
I'm a living sign 
I am a living sign 
I'm a living sign 
Sign... 
I am a living sign
