You've Got Everything Now
The Smiths Lyrics


As merry as the days were long
I was right and you were wrong

Back at the old grey school
I would win and you would lose

But you've got everything now
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh, what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
Because I've never wanted one

I've seen you smile
But I've never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor?
I cannot say...oh

You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
Oh...

But I don't want a lover
I just want to be seen...oh...in the back of your car

A friendship sadly lost?
Well this is true...and yet, it's false
Oh...

But did I ever tell you, by the way?
I never did like your face

But you've got everything now
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh, what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
Because I'm too shy

I've seen you smile
But I've never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor ?
I cannot say...oh

Oh...
You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
Oh...

But I don't want a lover
I just want to be tied... oh...to the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
Oh...

Back at the old grey school 
I would win and you would lose

But you've got everything now 
You've got everything now 
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life 
Oh, what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job 
Because I've never wanted one

I've seen you smile 
But I've never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor?

To the back of your car 
To the back of your car 
To the back of your car 
To the back of your car 
To the back of your car 
Oh...

John Richmond. That’s awesome. Kind of like the band ub40 eh? Unemployment. Love the smiths that reminds me of mr shankly too

John Richmond.

It was a line with real secondary and tertiary resonance at the time. I remember it well. British politics was obsessed with 'Maggies millions' or the 'unemployable' depending on your perspective. To sing 'NO...I never had a job because I never wanted one!' was a Big Deal. Ha!

Dylan T.

I don't want a lover i just want to be seen is another one that gets me
