A Swallow on My Neck - Morrissey

Oh ...
I have been smashed again
With the men from the
Old Valhalla Road Crematorium
Boring men with the same old patter

I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
And I don't know why I held out
So long for me and you


Until he drew
A swallow on my neck
And more, I will not say
He drew
A swallow, deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew


Then I was wrecked again
With the men full of bluff and ardour
From a well-known funeral parlour


I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
Older and wiser
Never applies to me


And so he drew
A swallow on my neck
And more, I will not say
He drew
A swallow, deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew


Aah ...
Oh ...


You have been telling me
That I have been
Acting childish
Foolish, ghoulish and childish
Oh, I know, I know, I know !
I know, I know, I know
But I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind


Ah ...
I don't mind
Ah
