"I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris"|
These words are transcribed without permission the way they appear in Morrissey's "Years Of Refusal" album. There are no variations between the printed lyrics and what Morrissey actually sings in the studio version.
In the absence of your love1 On the first two legs of the 2009 Tour Of Refusal Morrissey sometimes changed this line to "in the absence of any kind of touch".
2 Now and then on the Greatest Hits tour in 2007-2008 Morrissey would change this line to "I skate all over the place", "I scooter all over the place" or "I tour all over the place". On the first leg of the 2009 Tour Of Refusal he would constantly change to something different. Variations include "I skate all over the place", "I figure skate all over the place", "I scoot all over the place", "I fall all over the place", "I jog all over the place" and "I gab all over the place". On that tour's second and third legs, as well as on the Swords Tour, he rarely diverted from the line's original form.
3 On a few dates on the 2009 Swords Tour, Morrissey emphasized the song's final line by adding a spoken "very plain".
