"Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want"|

Good times for a changeNote: Because this song is under 2 minutes long, when it was performed live in 1984, 1985, 2006, 2007-2008 and 2009, Morrissey repeated the last seven lines above to extend it. He didn't do this for the harder electric arrangement of the song from 2002.
1 In all solo live performances of this song from 2006 to 2008 (bar perhaps once) Morrissey sang "let me have who I want" instead of "let me get what I want".
2 From 2006 to 2008 this line was sometimes changed to "Lord knows it would be impossible" or something similar.
