Spring-heeled Jim winks an eye1 On the Boxers tour of 1995 and on and off on the second half of the Maladjusted tour, Morrissey often changed this line to "As long as it's the normal thing to do". Also, in all 1995 and 1997 performances, however he sang the line, Morrissey followed it with "...ah yes!". This can all be heard in the live version of "Spring-Heeled Jim" available on the "The Boy Racer" cd-single.
2 In most live performances of this song, Morrissey changed this line to "take life at five times your average speed just like I do". This can be heard in the live version of the song available on the "The Boy Racer" cd-single. He also changed the line to "take life at five times your average speed I never do" on a few occasions in 1995 and 1997.
