The Headmaster Ritual
The Smiths Lyrics


Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools

Spineless swines
Cemented minds

Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old suit since nineteen sixty two

He does the military two-step down
The nape of my neck

I want to go home
I don't want to stay
Give up education
As a bad mistake

Mid-week on the playing fields
Sir thwacks you on the knees

Knees you in the groin
Elbow in the face
Bruises bigger than dinner plates

I want to go home
I don't want to stay

Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da

Belligerent ghouls
Run Manchester schools

Spineless bastards all

Sir leads the troops
Jealous of youth
Same old jokes since nineteen- oh- two

He does the military two-step down
The nape of my neck

I want to go home
I don't want to stay
Give up life
As a bad mistake

Please excuse me from gym
I've got this terrible cold coming on
He grabs and devours
He kicks me in the showers
Kicks me in the showers
And he grabs and devours

I want to go home
I don't want to stay

Andy Rourke shines on this album. His bass playing is so integral to the Sound of the Smiths and it is ‘criminally vulgar’ how little attention is paid to his talents. That being said, Side 1 of Meat is Murder could very well be one of the finest album sides, ever.

It's always been about Andy, I think

@perhaps Johnny only wrote the bass for “Suffer Little Children”. Some songs such as “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” were written by the original bassist, Dale. Other than that, most of the basslines are all Andy’s.

DimsThe Immortal

That's usually how it goes for most bassists people hardly even notice them
