The Lyrical Poetry of The Smiths



REEL AROUND THE FOUNTAIN

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made him old

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made him old
you made him old

Reel around the fountain
slap me on the patio
I'll take it now
Fifteen minutes with you
well, I wouldn't say no
oh people said
that you were virtually dead
and they were so wrong!

Fifteen minutes with you
I wouldn't say no
oh people said
that you were easily led
and they were half-right

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made him old

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made him old
you made him old

Reel around the fountain
slap me on the patio
I'll take it now

Fifteen minutes with you
I wouldn't say no
oh people see no worth in you
oh but I do

Fifteen minutes with you
oh I wouldn't say no
oh people see no worth in you
but I do

I dreamt about you last night
and I fell out of bed twice
you can pin and mount me
like a butterfly

But take me to the haven of your bed
was something that you never said
two lumps, please
you're the bee's knees
but so am I

Meet me at the fountain
shove me on the patio
I'll take it slowly

Fifteen minutes with you
oh I wouldn't say no
people see no worth in you
oh but I do

There's something queer about that song...hmmmm...the lyric come off to me as "male on male" and that was BEFORE I saw the video. I know, I know...tell me you hate me!

I think it is male on male too. On the first Smiths record Morrissey was almost Gene Simmonsian in his own way. Now aside from that, the man can write lyrics and Johnny Marr could write a nice tune on his guitar.

 

The line about pinning and mounting like a butterfly always cracks me up.

Some of their more sad songs have absurd lyrics. Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others have melancholic tone to it but the lyrics are anarchistic. But that happened a lot with the Smiths.
