First Of The Gang
Zee Avi Lyrics


You have never been in love
Until you've seen the stars
Reflect in the reservoirs

And you have never been in love
Until you've seen the dawn rise
Behind the home for the blind

We are the pretty, petty thieves
And you're standing on our street

Where Hector was the first of the gang
With a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die

Oh my, Hector was the first of the gang
With a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die, oh, my

You have never been in love
Until you've seen the sunlight thrown
Over smashed human bones

We are the pretty petty thieves
And you're standing on our street

Where Hector was the first of the gang
With a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die

Such a silly boy
Hector was the first of the gang
With a gun in his hand
And a bullet in his gullet
And the first lost lad to go under the sod

And he stole from the rich and the poor
And the not very rich and the very poor
And he stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away

You have never been in love
Until you have seen the stars reflect in the reservoirs
And you have never been in love
Until you have seen the dawn rise
Behind the home for the blind



We are the pretty, petty thieves
And you're standing on our streets
Where Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die, oh my
Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die, oh my



You have never been in love
Until you've seen the sunlight thrown
Over smashed human bone



We are the pretty, petty thieves
And you're standing on our streets
Where Hector was the
First of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die
Such a silly boy
Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the bullet in his gullet and the first lost lad to go under the sod



And he stole from the rich and the poor
And not very rich and the very poor
And he stole our hearts away
He stole our hearts away
He stole our hearts away

Great cover.

Quiet Night in the middle of Lake, staring into sky.

Eugenia Te

Lovely... a whole new song, as a decent cover must be

Bear Hughes

I like it. It bothers me when people say, um, say That's Entertainment, "oh the jam is much better than Mozs' cover of it" I didn't know it was a contest more of a respect thing I thought

Rhythm Child Video

such a great song and such a great cover!

Mike Someone

its an odd paring of a voice and style with the content of this song. Reminds me of covers of Leonard Cohen songs with beautiful voices. Sounds almost robo sung.

sdsuedeheadsd

this is amazing...and im usually very critical of Morrissey/Smiths covers

Dorizo

best. 2018 :D

JBLuv311

She is as smooth as the wind blows. I suggest looking her up on the NPR Music Tiny Desk Concerts.

Andrew Johnson

Wow, I really love Morrissey, but this is totally diggable.
