"Glamorous Glue"
(Morrissey/Alain Whyte)

 

These words are transcribed without permission the way they appear in Morrissey's "íThe Best Of!" album. There are no variations between the printed lyrics and what Morrissey actually sings in the studio version.

First day with the jar
you find
everyone lies
first day with the jar
you find
everyone lies, nobody minds
everyone lies
Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where's the woman you love?
Third week with the jar
you find
everything dies
we won't vote Conservative 1
because we never have
everyone lies, everyone lies
Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where's the woman you love?
Everything of worth 2
on earth 2
is there 2
to share 2
I used to dream, and I used to vow
I wouldn't dream of it now
We look to Los Angeles 3
for the language we use 3
London is dead, London is dead 4
London is dead, London is dead 4
London is dead, London is dead 4
I'm too much in love 5
I'm too much in love
I know 2
I'll go 2
empty hand 2
from the land 2

 

1 While in Washington on the Your Arsenal tour in 1992, Morrissey changed these words to "We won't vote Republican"

2 These lines were usually skipped when the song was performed live, except on one or very few occasions.

3 Morrissey has been known to change these lines to "We look to Los ha ha ha for the ha ha we use".

4 In the UK on the 1992 Your Arsenal tour, Morrissey sometimes mumbled the Los Angeles lyrics instead of singing them, or hummed the "London is dead" line.

5 Live in 1992, as heard on "Beethoven Was Deaf": "I'm still too much in love".
