Certain People I Know (Beethoven Was Deaf) - Lyrics by Morrissey


I take the cue from
Certain people i know
I use the cue
And then i
Hand it on to you

And when i swing it
So, it catches his eye ... ah, ooh ...
(ah, weren't you there ?
- you'd have died !)

I trust the views of
Certain people i know
They look at danger
And they
Laugh their heads off

Their clothes are imitation
George the 23rd ah, ooh ...
(don't you find life absurd ?)

I'd hate to be like
Certain people i know
They break their necks
And can't afford to
Get them fixed
Aho, aho

Ah, and they'd sacrifice all
Of their principles for
Ah, anything cashable
I ... i do believe, waah ... it's terrible

Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah
