Pretty Girls Make Graves
The Smiths Lyrics


Upon the sand, upon the bay
"There is a quick and easy way" you say
Before you illustrate
I'd rather state
I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am

And sorrow's native son
He will not smile for anyone
And pretty girls make graves

End of the pier, end of the bay
You tug my arm, and say "give in to lust
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll
Soon be dust"
Oh, I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am

And sorrow's native son
He will not rise for anyone
And pretty girls make graves
(Oh, really?)

I could have been wild and I could have been free
But nature played this trick on me
She wants it now
And she will not wait
But she's too rough
And I'm too delicate
Then, on the sand
Another man, he takes her hand
A smile lights up her stupid face
(And well, it would)
I lost my faith in womanhood
I lost my faith in womanhood
I lost my faith

Hand in glove
The sun shines out of our behinds

Upon the sand, upon the bay
"There is a quick and easy way" you say
Before you illustrate
I'd rather state
I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am
And sorrow's native son
He will not smile for anyone
And pretty girls make graves
End of the pier, end of the bay
You tug my arm, and say "give in to lust
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll
Soon be dust"
Oh, I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not the man you think I am
And sorrow's native son
He will not rise for anyone
And pretty girls make graves
(Oh, really?)
I could have been wild and I could have been free
But nature played this trick on me
She wants it now
And she will not wait
But she's too rough
And I'm too delicate
Then, on the sand
Another man, he takes her hand
A smile lights up her stupid face
(And well, it would)
I lost my faith in womanhood
I lost my faith in womanhood
I lost my faith
Hand in glove
The sun shines out of our behinds



Roberto Ripari

Sobre a areia, sobre a baía
Upon the sand, upon the bay

"Existe uma maneira rápida e fácil", você diz
"There is a quick and easy way" you say

Antes de ilustrar
Before you illustrate

Prefiro declarar
I'd rather state

Eu não sou o homem que você pensa que eu sou
I'm not the man you think I am

Eu não sou o homem que você pensa que eu sou
I'm not the man you think I am

E filho nativo da tristeza
And sorrow's native son

Ele não vai sorrir para ninguém
He will not smile for anyone

E meninas bonitas fazem sepulturas
And pretty girls make graves

Fim do cais, fim da baía
End of the pier, end of the bay

Você puxa meu braço e diz "ceda à luxúria
You tug my arm, and say "give in to lust

Desista da luxúria, oh Deus sabe que vamos
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll

Logo virá poeira "
Soon be dust"

Oh, eu não sou o homem que você pensa que eu sou
Oh, I'm not the man you think I am

Eu não sou o homem que você pensa que eu sou
I'm not the man you think I am

E filho nativo da tristeza
And sorrow's native son

Ele não vai subir por ninguém
He will not rise for anyone

E meninas bonitas fazem sepulturas
And pretty girls make graves

(Sério?)
(Oh, really?)

Eu poderia ter sido selvagem e poderia ser livre
I could have been wild and I could have been free

Mas a natureza pregou esta peça em mim
But nature played this trick on me

Ela quer agora
She wants it now

E ela não vai esperar
And she will not wait

Mas ela é muito dura
But she's too rough

E eu sou muito delicada
And I'm too delicate

Então, na areia
Then, on the sand

Outro homem, ele pega a mão dela
Another man, he takes her hand

Um sorriso ilumina seu rosto estúpido
A smile lights up her stupid face

(E bem, seria)
(And well, it would)

Eu perdi minha fé na feminilidade
I lost my faith in womanhood

Eu perdi minha fé na feminilidade
I lost my faith in womanhood

Eu perdi minha fé
I lost my faith

Mão na luva
Hand in glove

O sol brilha nas nossas costas
The sun shines out of our behinds
