Used To Be A Sweet Boy
Morrissey Lyrics


Used to be a sweet boy
Holding so tightly
To Daddy's hand
But that was all
In some distant land
Blazer and tie
And a big bright healthy smile
Used to make all
Of our trials worthwhile
Used to be a sweet boy
And I'm not to blame
But something went wrong
Something went wrong
And I know
I'm not to blame
Something went wrong
Can't be to blame
Ah

And I'm not to blame
But something went wrong
Something went wrong
And I know
I'm not to blame
Something went wrong
Can't be to blame

Robbie

Autobiographical about his strained relationship with his Father. The song reflects short and simply the trials of being a parent. The early pride in your son. Then something went wrong. Sad, beautiful and haunting. Short but one of his best.

Paul 👍

I love this song, I play it loud and sing along. Too short but brilliant

lefkytheshin

Great track.

VANGELIS ALMOND

lefkytheshin indeed...one of my best

Brock2097

Great song with a lot of implications, "something went wrong" but whose fault was it (if someone can even take blame for it) and who is speaking

Lori Rothenbush

Morrissey's memoirs will tell it all.

Luca X

Still a sweet boy imo

Solo Faces

A terror to Australia ... The wild colonial boy !!!!

JESUS loves you
