In the summer of 2008 and in 2009 he sang "somebody who doesn't exist".
2 Early on the 2009 Tour Of Refusal Morrissey sometimes sang "somebody on their death bed said".
3 On the 2007-2008 Greatest Hits tour and on the 2009 Tour Of Refusal Morrissey often changed this line from "someone's sweetie" to "somebody's sweetie".
