This charming man (The Smiths)


Reproductor do video.

En novembro de 1984 The Smiths editan seu segundo disco. Hatful of Hollow é un recopilatorio de singles e caras B. Daquela Morrissey mostraba o seu apoio a un grupo de activistas que baixo o nome de “cuña vermella”, protestaban contra as políticas levadas a cabo en Gran Bretaña pola ultraconservadora Margaret Thatcher, en especial contra os mineiros que protagonizaron diferentes folgas. Este disco recolle tamén unha selección das súas míticas sesións radiofónicas para a BBC 1 nos shows de John Peel e David Jennsen. En concreto esta canción foi grabada o 14 de setembro de 1983 no programa de John Jennsen xunto con Back To the Old House, Still Ill e a inédita This Night Has Opened My eyes.

THIS CHARMING MAN
(THE SMITHS)

Punctured bicycle
on a hillside desolate
will nature make a man of me yet?
when in this charming car
this charming man

why pamper life’s complexities
when the leather runs smooth
on the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight
but i haven’t got a stitch to wear
this man said “it’s gruesome
that someone so handsome should care”

A jumped-up pantry boy
who never knew his place
he said “return the rings”
he knows so much about these things
he knows so much about these things

I would go out tonight
but i haven’t got a stitch to wear
this man said “it’s gruesome
that someone so handsome should care”
oh, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charming man …
oh, da-da, da-da, da-da, this charming man …

A jumped-up pantry boy
who never knew his place
he said “return the ring”
he knows so much about these things
he knows so much about these things
he knows so much about these things
